We arrived at Budapest early evening and drove across this bridge as the lights came on, it looks very impressive all lit up, a beautiful sight. It was bigger than I was expecting, crossing -as a pedestrian- was fine, some terrific views too.

This is a beautiful bridge which we saw both during the day and at night. We went over it and saw it from below on a boat. The city including the bridge, is very well lit at night which creates a fabulous environment which was enjoyed by many people of many varying ages.

You have to walk the walk over this iconic bridge from Buda to Pest - it's a must do. And you also have to return to see it at night and to see the wonderful castle and Parliament building form the other side of the river. Stunning

A great walk across. Interesting to see the padlocks left by people. Also nice views of the river and city from each side of the bridge. Puts into context that Buda and Pest are two very different places

Imagine how many people have been passing tru this strong and steady bridge each day going to Buda and Pest. At the bridge you see the beauty of each side of Budapest.

Loved the Danube and the many bridges with this one being quite special. Great to walk on and even better to look at. Loved in the day and night..must do walk at both times of the day. Fabulous even in winter

Very impressive sight to see from many different angles, and to cross, knowing how beautifully made it was at the time of it's design

To sail under this bridge when it is all lit up is a wonderful experience. Love the way Hungary takes care of its building treasures.. Site not to miss. Was disappointed not to see it and the Parliament one last time the night we drove to the airport!
