The mighty Danube is certainly not blue here but a cruise lasting about an hour (or dinner cruise) is to be recommended. All the main riverside buildings plus Castle and Gellert hill are floodlit so night cruises are as good as day ones.

We just returned from the Viking River cruise from Nuremberg to Budapest. It was marvelous. We went to all the Christmas markets that the cruse stopped at. The smells and sounds of theses markets will stay with us for many years. The staff went out of their way to make sure everyone had a great time. The service level was... More

We booked this 1 hour boat trip to get a feel for the Danube as well as to see sights on both sides. Well worth doing as it gave me the opportunity to take some great pictures. On our trip we were given hot mulled wine followed up with a second drink included in the price. Since this was a... More

My friend and I went on the night cruise on the Danube in November. Budapest at night is just stunning. Highly recommend the Danube night cruise over the day cruise.

We had a wonderful dinner cruise on a Tauck tour of the Danube. The Budapest buildings are all lit up at night and the sight is magical.

It can get pretty cold on here in the winter months so if you walk down it make sure you wrap up. Do one of the river cruises as well. You get a good view of all the buildings of importance up and down the Danube.
