The main highlight is the musical fountain located at the entrance. It works every hour. The kids love it and i guess even adults. The rest is a park on this island so its a nice long walk from the centre but the scenery of...More

The event started ad saturday at 21:00 and was hour long. Fountain itself is impressive and its variation to pop, rock, classical and opera music was fantastic. We heard Fade to black, Carmen, Vivaldi's four seasons and Mozart along other songs i don't recall. Also...More

I wouldn't go all the way to Margrit Park just to see this fountain. It's cute, and done well, but still a bit kitsch. I WOULD go to Margrit Park for the park, sort of a Budapest version of Central Park. So if you're already...More

I don't know what to say, it was the highlight of this trip. It's a must when visiting Budapest, especially in the evening when the show begins

Went here on our first night. Always better to catch the later show so the lights look prettier. Not as "WOW" as the musical fountain in Barcelona, but worth a visit. Enjoy the music and the show.

We enjoyed sitting and watching the fountains on a sunny afternoon. They are not as great in scale as say Barcelona's but they are nice and the music was contemporary. They play different music each hour so you can time your visit to your musical...More

We came late in the afternoon after a full day of sightseeing and we were a bit tired but so glad we came. The fountain display started on the hour and went for 10-15 minutes. Was really lovely to watch. Wish we'd been able to...More

For Budapest, this island between the banks of the

picturesque; the flowers in full bloom give the
landscape a variety of hues; the fountains add an air
of freshness, making walks peaceful, joyful and
romantic. A leisurely stroll will uncover a variety of
