“Worth crossing on foot!”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

Crossing on foot is very easy as it has walkways on both sides. This also offers the chance to take some great pictures of the Danube. At night the bridge is very well lit offering some great night time photo opportunities too!

“As Bridges go this is Good”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

This is no Golden Gate bridge but you will probably have to make the short walk over it get to the Gellert Spa (worth several hours winter or summer) and it is a must photo stop.

“Its a bridge!”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

Admittedly a pretty bridge, but a bridge all the same.

The top 50 attractions gets filled up with bridges, rivers and "Budapest". Not very helpful.

Its a bridge. Go and see it, but you'll be hard pushed to not need to cross it. You couldn't spend more than about 10minutes here if you tried.

“Amazing”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

A must visit when you are in Budapest. Go at night because the view is better at night. Walk from Buda area to Pest.

“Anothe beautiful bridge”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Great seen lit up at night - take tram number 2 down the river to see all the bridges. Tram tickets can be bought at all metro stations ( but not on the tram!) and just remember to punch it into the orange machines as you get on the tram!
