Budapest Daytime Sightseeing Cruise by Legenda City Cruises

267 reviews
Much of Budapest’s grand architecture and other landmark sites are located along the river, so a cruise along the Danube is an ideal way to get to know the city. Relax with a drink as you watch the city scenery go by through the large windows. You have the chance to disembark at Margaret Island and explore for 90 minutes until the next boat comes along, or stay on board if you wish.

This breathtaking castle is much better viewed from the Pest side of Budapest, especially after dark, when it is dramatically illuminated. However, strolling through the castle area and atriums is a must when you visit the Buda side of town.

One of the places you just have to visit during your stay in Budapest. Beautiful castle and area around it. The view from Buda Castle is amazing. Still can't decide if I like it more when I am in the Buda Castle area, or from the opposite side of the river where I can fully see it. Take enough time to explore both options, it's totally worth it.

We took the funicular up, and walked down. We went to the history museum at the castle and were practically the only tourists there (the castle site is now an art museum and a history museum). We didn’t have a very long time and were advised to see the history of Budapest on 1st floor. It is a series of summary extracts in English and Hungarian over the 1,000 years of history. This included a small amount on WW2 and communism. We enjoyed the history but this museum could be so much better. It really didn’t help that the air-con was not on, which made the museum pretty hot. Go, if you are a history fan (like me), otherwise consider giving it a miss. The outdoor area is really beautiful.

We took the electric car as we were with two kids being one of them 4yo, to grant we could see everything! It is one option worth considering in our case. It costs 5euro per person and you can hop on and out every 10min. We went back on foot though as we stayed longer and the service was over. It took us 7min to walk down with kids. We visited the castle gardens and had great views of the city from there. Really nice! We also managed to see the change of the guards twice which is simple but interesting, specially for the kids.
