Not sure why all the bridges are listed as sights. It's a bridge. Margaret Island is worth a visit, esprcially wiht a picnic lunch.

Not the prettiest bridge in Budapest but certainly the one with the best view of Parliament, and especially great for night time photos. Our tour guide told us the story of how the bridge was accidentally blown up in WW2 and had to be rebuilt....More

I was on this bridge waiting at the bus stop to catch bus #26 to go visit Margaret Island. This bridge has no shade whatsoever. In the summer months it is kind of uncomfortable to walk on the bridge. The view of the city and...More

The bridge offers excellent views down the Duna at any time of day. It's definitely worth pausing while you are waiting for a tram, or just crossing over. It isn't the prettiest of Budapest's bridges, but does offer the least obscured view down to Parliament,...More

The bridges over the Danube are very lovely and give brilliant views over the Danube and to both Buda and Pest. This one is particularly good for views of the beautiful parliament buildings and the castle.

There are good view of the river from this bridge that links Buda and Pest. Well kept bridge to see boats of all kinds and landmarks in the city. Lit up at night.

Margaret Bridge connects The Buda and Pest sides of the city across the Danube. Unlike the other Budapest bridges, there is no superstructure above the bridge, so you have unimpeded views. This is the best way I know of to get to Margaret Island and...More

Margaret Bridge was completed in 1876 and is the second oldest bridge straddling The Danube and connecting the twin cities of Buda and Pest. It is close to the Hungarian Parliament and provides direct access to Margaret Island. We walked the entire length of the...More

Another beautiful bridge linking Buda and Pest with views again of this lovely city. This bridge like many on the river were blown up by the retreating Germans during World War Two but was restored to its former glory. Lots of boats pass under the...More

If you are visiting Budapest and you are near this bridge you can have a nice walk around it. This bridge offers a different view of the city's landmarks.
