This bridge is a great place from which to take photos of not only the bridge itself, which is really cool, but the river and the buildings on the Pest side.

We walked from our place in Pest along the Danube to the Chain Bridge and over to tour Buda. Once again, it was a beautiful day and a great experience with again a different view of both cities. Well worth the walk.

Hello, An exceptional view, especially if you visit at night when fully lit. It can be crossed on foot.

I just loved walking back across this bridge with the sunset and looking back up the Danube, the ships plying it, the nice buildings either side, the cittadella. Great!

I love Budapest and I wanted to experience everything in the 3 days I was there... That being said I was willing to walk the entire bridge in the freezing cold. It was amazing and beautiful just taking in the city as I was walking across... Taking photos as well.. Well worth the walk...

This bridge is super busy but walking across you get amazing views of the city and the river! In the evening it is well lit and safe to cross.

We viewed this bridge while walking across it on a free walking tour. The bridge is impressive to see and would definitely recommend to view this at night, when it is lit up. It would be worth ticking this one off while, like us, completing a free walking tour or bus ride in the city. Enjoy

Walking across this you get a sense of the power of engineering. And in total opposite there are people putting 'love' locks on the bridge!
