“Great park setting in the middle of Budapest!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

My family and I bike and walk at Margit Island as often as we can, and we just LOVE IT! There are amazing parks for children of all ages on the island, and the bike trails are perfect for families with small children, as well as people of all ages. Beautiful scenery, lovely gardens, good restaurants on the island.....great, great place to visit while in Budapest!

“Tranquil park in the middle of Budapest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

This is a lovely place to go for a walk or bike ride (you can hire bikes) on a nice day or if you are feeling romantic there are also horse drawn carriages.

“A bit overrated, yet nice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

The island is nice for killing time or taking it easy. It is definitely yhe place to go for locals, especially with small children. However, as tourists, I did not find it as a place worth visiting. Budapest has other attarctions to offer

Margaret island lies on Danube between Margit and Arpad bridge. No traffic allowed. Paradise for nature lovers.

“Loads to see and do”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Although it was new years eve when we walked around this island you can see that in summer the place would be buzzing as there is so much to do on the island. Sports and outdoor activities in abun dance. There is a cushioned running track (single lane) that joggers use all year round that goes right around the island and it was busy even when we went. There is a hot spring and a very grand hotel and spa reswort on the island too.

One thing.... mind the dog poo!
