If you're in Budapest definitely take the late evening boat tour on the Danube! You'll be amazed by the view given by Chain Bridge and the Parliament building. And you can watch this while enjoying a glass of champagne. The bridge is one monumentale engineering piece of art work. And the lights on it will bring you into a world... More

You must see it because it's so famous and so central. You don't have to linger, but it's good to walk or ride over the Danube and sense the old city (or cities -- Buda and Pest).

Fantastic views across either side of the city both day and night. Steeped in history and free, great to mingle with local families at the weekend and great unhurried views of iconic sites on either side. The prettiest of all the bridges and best location for your photos.

A nice bridge to walk over to get from Pest to Buda and vice versa. Cross the brown Danube! Not the most spectacular bridge in the world but worth the walk.

This is a stunning bridge that you can see a great view down the Danube. It is even more beautiful when walking across at night.

You can't miss it on your trip to Budapest. It is illuminated at night and equally beautiful during the day. In a city with many beautiful bridges, this was my favorite.

This very famous bridge must be crossed by foot to truly enjoy the view. It is a nice walk and make sure to bring your camera for the one of a kind pictures of both Buda and Pest you will get.

This is the most famous bridge in Hungary. It was the first bridge to join Buda with Pest, and has a very colourful history. Locals say the stone lions have no tongues! It's well worth seeing, and it's nice to walk across and see views of Buda and Pest from both sides of the Danube.

This iconic bridge gives you great views of both sides of the Danube and is a quick link of the main sights of both Buda and Pest. It looks amazing lit up at night.
