Chain Bridge

We walked across it. It is an old and interesting bridge. There are another 5 parallel to it but this is the most famous. You can see it from everywhere.

The chain bridge is one of the major bridges connecting Buda & Pest. It's flanked with huge lion statues. It's a nice walk across the bridge and is big enough for bikes as well. On the Buda side, there is a trolley just as you exit the bridge that will take you up to castle hill. It's great.

I took some nice pictures of the bridge and the castle from the banks before walking on the bridge. The view is marvellous from there. Also its photograph from the castle is as fabulous. The stroll on it is a real nice experience. Although some bridges of the kind exist in New York and may be larger but this one... More

Take a walk on it, see it from the Buda hills, admire it from the Danube cruise or just go over on a hon on hop off bus, the chain bridge is one of the 7-8 magnificent bridges that connect Buda with Pest. All of them are so different and attractive...wow...

Was surprised to see this as such a high rated attraction, because, well, it is a bridge! But if you do very little else in Budapest it is well worth a walk across, to see the view. It is especially nice in the evening. The Buda side of it drops you right at the bottom of the funicular up the... More

Budapest is a very walkable city. The Chain Bridge is a great way to feel the city as you cross the Danube. We took the funicular to the castle precincts.

I think we had about 50 pictures of the bridge day and night. We have narrowed it down to maybe 15 with different views in front of it, beside it and looking over it!!! Lovely for sure.

Just go for a walk on the bridge and enjoy the views and admire the construction. Don't miss the lion statues.
