“Memorable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Easy to walk across. Well worth it. Make sure you do this while you are in Budapest. Most of the walking tours will take you across it anyway.

“At it's best at night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

At night this bridge is lit up and is beautiful both from a distance and close up. It is right oposite the Four Seasons Hotel and is the most central of the bridges in Budapest.

“iconic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

a great start to our visit in the freezing cold late evening to find this landmark lit up and overlook the Danube....we had no expectations and if we secretly had they were surpassed

“The link between Buda and Pest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

There are many bridges over the Danube but this is probably the most used. It is near to the funicular train that takes you up to the Castle area and the number 16 bus uses this to take you from Buda to Pest on a regular basis.
