Overview

Take in the illuminated highlights of Budapest during a 1-hour evening cruise on the Danube River, which gives you some of the best opportunities to snap photos of the city's top landmarks lit up. Float past the UNESCO World Heritage–listed riverbanks in a glass-enclosed boat, toasting the sights with an included beverage (alcoholic or nonalcoholic). Highlights include the Chain Bridge, the Buda Castle District, the Hungarian Parliament, and others, which are all put into context with onboard film and audio guides available in multiple languages.

What to Expect

Make your way to the central Budapest pier (exact location provided after booking) ahead of your chosen departure time, and board the glass-covered boat for your 1-hour Danube River cruise. Find a seat in the enclosed cabin—perfect for variable weather—as the boat pulls away and cruises along the UNESCO World Heritage–listed riverbanks.

On the journey southward, listen to recorded commentary in your choice of 30 languages and enjoy an informative film on the Danube River's history. Sip a provided glass of wine, Champagne, beer, or a nonalcoholic beverage while taking in views of the Royal Palace, the Buda Castle district, the Parliament Building, the Chain Bridge, and Margaret Island. Along the way, snap photos of all of these famous landmarks, lit up for the night.

You'll return to the pier at the conclusion of your tour.

It’s okay - well organized

It’s a little bit better than ‘boat cruises included in bus hop-in hop-off’ mainly because it’s better organized (we were on both boat cruises - this one and ‘bus one’). We had rain so we weren’t able to take many pictures, but otherwise it’s a...More

Budapest at Night - AMAZING

Well worth doing - the city looks beuatiful at night ( although a bit chilly in late March !) good value for money and you can buy drinks/snacks on board -
