The Lights of the city are spectacular and recommended for all you young and old lovers! When in Budapest take the night sites in. We felt much safer strolling than most cities in the world. Take a stroll along the river on the Pest side, take the funicular to Castle/Buda Hill or hike the path, or take a river cruise... More

We had the best time on a rivercruise cruising down the Danube. We stopped at quaint little towns along the river like Kreme, Regansberg, and Passau. We also stopped in Vienna and Nuremberg. There were 26 locks that we went through on the Danube.

It is the second time I visit Budapest and I took the opportunity to revisit one of the most important rivers in the world. View it was a great pleasure and if I have the chance to come back, and I hope very soon, I will come back to look at him very willingly.

I recommend taking a boat trip down this river as it is quite relaxing and get a good view of Budapest. If you book a bus tour with BigBus you get a free boat trip down the river with a completely drink.

We were also celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary then. Europe's Imperial Treasures Tour 1A The land portion was excellent. We were with 34 other people from around the world.... More

After reading all the reviews we went on a night cruise for approx 1 hour. There was no outside viewing. The windows reflected the light from both sides of the river so it was hard to see. I had a better view from walking along the river. Much better for taking photos. The Danube is beautiful day and night. Save... More

The Danube is very beautiful, you can take a boat ride there or just walk around from bridge to bridge

I think the boat ride from Pest to Buda cost around 500HUF-1000HUF. Was a pleasant but quick ride across
