Nice bridge, with public transportation crossing it.
Crossing the Danube River in the central downtown area you can look down at all the river boats.

In a city of bridges, the Chain Bridge stands out as most elegant. It spans the Danube, connecting the two cities of Buda and Pest. We loved it most at night, enjoyed from one of the many boat trips along the Danube; it lends a magic and luster to the city. We particularly enjoyed walking leisurely along the bridge, to get our first close-up view of Buda, as we were staying in Pest. This marvellous bridge has none of the tourist-trap glitz of the Charles Bridge in Prague or other similar places. It is simply a functional bridge that provides magnificent views of both sides of this terrific city.

The Chain Bridge is massive and beautiful. You can walk across it as it has a large pedestrian walkway so not to worry about all the traffic on the bridge. At night it is beautifully lit up.

A walk over this bridge is a must for every visitor, and make sure you bring your camera as there are plenty of photo opportunities. But watch out for cyclists from behind and coming towards you.

There are so many bridges over the Donau. I remember this bridge only because I followed my track the whole time with a citymap of Budapest. These citymaps you will get in every hotel.
