Budapest Danube River Cruise

  • English
  • 70 minutes.

Explore Budapest from the water on a 1-hour cruise along the Danube River and enjoy breath-taking panoramic views of the city’s monuments and most famous bridges with pre-recorded commentary in English and one free drink.


Experience a cruise along the Danube River from north to south, sailing under Budapest’s most renowned bridges: Chain Bridge, Elisabeth Bridge, Liberty Bridge and Margaret Island’s two bridges.

All the boats are panoramic with huge glass windows that offer superb views of Buda and Pest and the numerous iconic landmarks like the Royal Palace, the Parliament, Gellert Hotel, Fisherman’s Bastion or Church of Saint Anne.

You’ll learn about the city’s history and about each monument the boat floats past listening to the pre-recorded commentary in English. You will also be given a free drink during the journey to choose from: champagne, wine, beer, soft-drinks or mineral water and a glass of homemade lemonade.

Stop in Margaret Island

This cruise stops in Margaret Island. You can get off and discover this peaceful hideaway (well worth it) and take the following boat back to Pier 7. You’ll be handed a map with a list of things to do on the island and several discounts to make the most of your visit.

All boats offer this option between March and October, except the last boat of the day.
