Basically, it's just a bridge. A very good recreation of the original bridge (blown up at the end of World War II like pretty much every bridge in Budapest) and it's a nice, not so strenuous walk on a nice pedestrian walkway. If you're taking a ride up to Castle Hill on the Funicular, it's directly across so great access.

This is an interesting bridge which is worth walking across once in a visit to Budapest. There are some interesting photo opportunities.

We walked this twice during our visit, once at night and once during the day. Great views of the city and river as you walk across. Very nice.

We walked this twice during our visit, once at night and once during the day. The night-time was the most atmospheric although I missed the names on the locks until we walked over in the day! The architecture is lovely (as with Elizabeth Bridge and Liberty Bridge to be fair) and you get great views of the city and river... More

Of all the bridges you can cross the river with this is the most beautiful. However it is just a bridge that has a nice area for pedestrians to cross and is in a prime location for crossing

This bridge is built to last. Rebuilt in 1946 after the retreating German army blew it up it has since stood the test of time and what a grand bridge it is.

Just your average old bridge with lots of tourists, although the view on Castle Hill is great. It seems the railings are too thick to attach love locks to, so they have erected an ugly frame just for that purpose in a nearby park on the Pest side.

Beautiful bridge, one of the "diamonds" of Budapest, especially at night, when it is lit. Your must to see when you are in Budapest. Beautifil landscape and attractions on both side of the bridge.

Very beautiful bridge. This is where Buda meets Pest and the two cities marry! It's the real jewel of the city.
