Took a night time cruise and found it to be extremely interesting and amazing as everything including Chain Bridge was illuminated. Day time though the fog/mist limited the view when walking along embankment (But it was mid February and - 3Deg.)

Part of the hop on bus is a free boat cruise. Duration one hour. Amazing scenes of the bridges dividing Buda and Pest. It passes by the parliament building, where on clear day will give s chance for tens of selfies and pictures. It ladt one hour, better stay outdoor

A place I didn't think I would see, so was thrilled to go. I have to be honest it is like the Thames, very brown water, sadly no "Blue" Danube. But never the less such an iconic place i'm happy to say I have been to.

Pretty good cruise actually although quite cold and our trip only lasted an hour. We didn't do a hop on hop off trip. Nice to do if you want to give your legs a rest!

Book one of the many river trips for an evening or day cruise. Prefer evening and gives a good overview of the bridges and the layout of the riverside attractions for later visits.

Do not miss to see Budapest from the river. There are fantastic ways to see Budapest, form Castle Hill, from tram number 2 and you should not miss a boat trip on the Danube. The Banks of the Danube in Budapest and the Castle Hill quartier are the part of the World Heritage List. One of the best way to... More

There are many boat rides you can take on the Danube. I love the one way trip to Szentendre, take my time to visit the hidden spots of Szentendre (don't stay at the shore !) and than take suburban train (HEV) back to Budapest.
