From a unique perspective, you may see the whole city centre, the Buda Castle, the Hungarian Parliament, the Fisherman’s Bastion, the bridges over the river and many spectacular buildings, too. Perhaps the Danube is the most proper choice in order to explore Budapest both day and night. Our boats do depart from Dock11 (directly at the Elizabeth Bridge) several times a day. From there heading north to the Margaret Bridge, where the passengers have the opportunity to get in and out. It is so worth walking along the island which is popular for tourists and locals, too as it is unique greenery part in the middle of the city. Passing the island, the boat is cruising in the direction of the Rákóczi Bridge. The boats do operate in winters and summers, every day of the year so it is never too late to book a ticket.
If you have already walked around the whole city on foot and by public transport during the day and admired all the sights mentioned in the guidebooks, it is worth watching the sunset from the Danube as the most romantic and unique program in the end of the day. The city is floating in lights, the water of the Danube and nature silence could warm our hearts. The open deck of the boat is a great place for tasting some famous Hungarian wines and also taking a selfie so do not miss your phone in the pocket. If the sightseeing cruises are not enough, choose one of the 3-hour cruising with fine dinner and an exclusive live music show on luxury catamaran boats.
