We visited before we crossed over chain bridge, wasn’t too busy with people. Quite a few tour groups go past that way. If you’re looking to do some sightseeing you should definitely pass by the Shoes on the Danube. Doesn’t make itself too well known with signposts so it’s a case of following the river up from chain bridge.

The Shoes on the Danube memorial is very moving. They are along the Danube promenade walking up to Parliament. Not impressed by the tourists taking selfies.

On the pest side away from chain bridge and towards elizbeth bridge you can watch these artistic shoes on the proomenade.
Very impressionistic site .
If not for this at least the promenade walk is worth it in late evening.

Set between the Danube and the parliament building, this memorial is easy to miss and yet incredibly powerful when you are standing by it.
I was both pleased, that there wasn't a protective barrier between the shoes and the Danube, and surprised from a safety perspective!

Pictures taken of this area are in its 100,000's I am sure. However just to stand and look at these models of foot wear is memorable. To stand there and imagine what took place during the terror years in Budapest is daunting and we must never forget those to gave their lives and those who suffered during those sad dark days.

The shoes is a memorial to those marched down to the Danube by local fascist groups, they were forced to remove their shoes before being shot. Their bodies washed away in the river..

What a thought provoking place to visit on the beautiful Danube. It seems so contradictory to visit such a lovely place and then to see what cruelty happens in very sad and dangerous times.

Touching monument for the dark side of Hungarian history. Although the saddest part for me were the tourist taking selfies there with those shoes. I think they didn't have an idea what this memorial there was about.

A moving experience for each person, a performance that vividly and vividly illustrates the horrors of the Holocaust that the Jewish residents of Budapest experienced during the Second World War. Children's shoes, men's and women's shoes stand in eternal memory on the banks of the Danube in memory.

I stumbled upon the shoes next to the river and was curious to find out what it was. I googled it and I felt very sad that I was standing at the place where this tragedy took place during a World War 2. Never forget.
