“Beautiful at Night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

The Chain Bridge was so beautiful lit up at night. We took a Viking River Cruise and our ship was docked at the Chain Bridge.

“Good tourist spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Hungary has great weather from April to September so it is worth walking across the bridge and take great photos of the scenery.

“Walking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Another iconic symbol of the city at the lions of Chain bridge. We were on a walking tour and learned so much of the legend and history of the Bridge. I would recommend doing that.

“free”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

It is a nice bridge, you can visit it during the day and then come back at night, that way you can see it with all the lights on. It's free so not problem there. I like it but didn't feel that it deserves such a big case. I have seen bigger bridges. But nevertheless, it's a landmark so go and take some pictures.
