A lovely bridge and a must for a visit to Budapest. Very romantic at night and creates a lovely central point to the city.

“One of a kind Bridge”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

there are various statues you along this bridge. Nice way to walk across the Danube. It is a pedestrian only bridge. there were people during the day....crowded but not unbearable.

“I expected more”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

I expected this bridge to be more spectacular, but in my opinion even the other bridge, the green one (Szabadsag Hid) looked nicer. Like other bridges, it's full of people and bikers.

“Better at night”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Chain Bridge can be very busy traffic wise, also you may have to dodge people shooting across the pedestrian walkway full tilt on push bikes,

We thought it was better at night, all lit up and not as busy.

“check the lions”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

The chain bridge has always been a fantasy... walking along it could only be compared to walking along the cairo bridge over the Nile with wind and sights are just beautiful.... look out for the lion sculptures at the gates to the bridge as they have no tongues.... made so ... so that they do not reveal their secrets.
