The area
Neighborhood: Margaret Island
For Budapest, this island between the banks of the Danube represents a green oasis, especially during summer when its emerald spaces are much enjoyed by both locals and tourists. The gardens here are very picturesque; the flowers in full bloom give the landscape a variety of hues; the fountains add an air of freshness, making walks peaceful, joyful and romantic. A leisurely stroll will uncover a variety of sites, even the ruins of a medieval Franciscan church and convent are still visible.

    Amazing, and great in the heat
    We visited Margret Island to actually see the fountain and wasn’t disappointed. The music is random, Let it Go, Moana & Shakira to name a few (most in Hungarian). It was around 30 minutes long and you can sit with your feet in the fountain. That was unbelievably welcome after walking round the island in 35 degree heat with no breeze! Highly recommend visiting, not even for kids, we’re a couple who sat and watched the whole thing, twice!

    Brilliant
    Well worth taking local transport out to visit this. We went at night and was fabulous, colourful lights set off by the darkness of night. Fountain show reacts to the music. During our visit we had some pop, classical and opera music. Definitely a must see, even if you pop along for one song. Very unique

    Fabulous fountain
    The musical fountain on Margaret Island was wonderful. Thoroughly enjoyed. The fountain display is continuous and the music is on the hour for 15 mins. It's free to see the fountain and free to access the island The island itself was pretty with lots of leisure facilities and a mini free zoo. The no 4,6 trans and 26 bus went there.

    We could've easily watched it all day
    My mum's favorite part of our whole trip was watching this fountain. The movement of the water is so peaceful and hypnotic we could've easily watched it all day. If you sit close enough it also provides a refreshing spray to boot!

We arrived at the island and listened to nice music from the fountain. We went closer and saw a brilliant open-air show: romantic music with dancing water-statues. Some other people were sitting and standing around, but in social distance, so it was safe. The programme starts at every hour. It's interesting and worth a visit.

While staying on Margaret Island, we took an evening walk to the music fountain. How very enjoyable! I loved the casual feel, and how families and friends gathered to enjoy this fountain. The park is clean, with beautiful floral gardens all around. There is music playing, and the colors of the lights in the fountain change as well as the fountain itself changes, making it fun to look and listen to the music. We may have stayed around 30-45 minutes, but if I could go again, I would bring a blanket or chairs and pack a picnic dinner and enjoy for longer. I love it when cities know how to create a wonderful, clean area for all to enjoy.

No one on this site or anyone at the Margaret Island has said anything about the Music Fountain being close during February. If you have any plans to visit this attraction soon , please reconsider otherwise you will be deeply disappointed like I was. There is no information about when this attraction will be open but save your the trouble and money and don't come here for the Music Fountain but anything else. Otherwise just wait until late March onwards and it may be open by then.

Visited Margret island as we had a couple of hours to kill and came across the fountains. It’s an impressive fountain display to music, definitely worth a visit.

The rest of the island is worth a visit but like lots of Budapest feels stuck in time thus needs a update.

On website said about light show at night. Walked 25 minutes to the island for it to be closed off with barriers and not working. Went in the day time to walk around the island and it was all closed off with black bags covering it.

Very disappointed as someone could have said on website or updated status on google. E.g. temporarily closed.

The rest of the island was nice but in the morning a lot of the food places closed

We came across the music fountain accidentally, when we hopped off our river cruise, to walk on Margaret Island. What a wonderful surprise! The opera music and the colorful lights on the fountains are spectacular. When we went back another evening they played pop music. Highly recommendable
