This bridge is a must see during the day however.....at night it is a DO NOT MISS. It becomes the central point of a magical landscape.

“THE MOST BEAUTIFULL OF BUDAPEST BRIDGES”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

Chain Bridge or Lions Bridge ,because of the two lions decoration, at each side entrance of the bridge,is one of the most beautifull bridges of Hungary.I felt sorry when i heart from our guide that the creator suicided becauce he forgotten to put the tongue of the lion.
I enjoyed it passing with our tour-bus and also walking on it crossing Buda to Pesti, both daylight and at night that is illuminated. It looks fantastic.

“The nicest bridge in Budapest, great all lit up!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

Although this bridge is sort of a mini Brooklyn Bridge, in that it is constructed of brick and is of a similar style to the New York landmark, it doesn't have the presence of the Brooklyn Bridge--but it is the nicest one in Budapest. At night, it is especially lovely. There is a park on the Pest side near the entrance to the bridge, and the funicular which takes you up to the palace is right there when you arrive on the Pest side.

“so beautiful at night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

The bridge is very beautiful when lit up at night - walked over it a couple of times over the few days we were there and definitely is best and most romantic at nighttime!!
