We walked across it as one must in Budapest!! Lovely views up and down the river and a must see!! It was the first bridge to cross the Danube between Buda and Pest.

I would not consider this a site in and of itself. It is nice and pretty. It provides a nice view point for Castle Hill and the palace. As a result I would recomend walking across the bridge if you are staying in Pest and going to Castle Hill for the day, but probably wouldn't bother seeing it, if the sole purpose of the stop was to see the bridge.

Watch out of the bikers, since they try to run you over ;)
Amazingly big bridge with quite the story of its builder. The lions protect the bridge and that seem to helped to survive the WW II.

I walked across this bridge to honor my father, who did the same in 1924 when leaving Hungary at the age of 18 for the USA.

Such a beautiful bridge. Lovely at night when lit up, especially from a Danube cruise. Lots of both auto and foot traffic. Right in front of our hotel.
