This is a great place to take a walk at sunset. There are lovely views of Gresham Place and the city.

Great bridge to see from afar, walk across, at night or daytime. Strikes curiosity in me to see the Marlow Bridge in England for comparison.

While in Budapest, we stayed in an apartment that overlooked this beautiful landmark. I highly recommend one of the many night cruises on the Danube. The photos of the bridge as you're passing under or near it are truly beautiful. The other sights while doing the cruise are breathtaking. Buda Castle, the most spectacular Parliament House and Castle Hill to... More

I thought I'd seen some great bridges in my time, but this bridge is literally a miracle. I feel sorry for all others bridges, they must feel pretty uninspired in comparison. I crossed back and forth for hours lost in complete amazement. The architecture is truly unparalleled and I'm not sure I can return my hometown of Paris now without... More

We walked over the bridge during our time in Budapest and it is such a beautiful bridge. It is amazing at night with all the lights along it.

It's 0 minutes from heaven. Further you go, 1 minute from there you find the most luxurious hotels, then the cathedal, and on to the Andrássy avenue, 'bout 15 minutes.... from there: left or right, or ahead, FUN, FUN, FUN..

Although we didn't have time to walk across this bridge, it is seen in many of our photos and is a nice detail in all of them. The bridge looks really nice and became somewhat of a symbol of Budapest for me. Next time we'll have to give it a proper visit.
