Danube Promenade

star-5
189 Reviews
From $6.08

Stretching from the Chain Bridge to the Elisabeth Bridge on the Pest side of the Danube, the Danube Promenade is a favorite among tourists and locals alike. In the early 20th century, this stretch was home to famous hotels such as the Ritz, the Bristol and the Carlton. Today, new luxury hotels like the InterContinental and the Sofitel line the Promenade, together with other prominent buildings and attractions.

Near the Chain Bridge, you will find the neo-Renaissance Hungarian Academy of Sciences building, opened in 1865. On the same square is the art nouveau Gresham Palace and a statue of Count Istvan Szechenyi, a 19th-century Hungarian politician and writer who encouraged the founding of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and promoted political reform.

On the other end of the Promenade, near the Elisabeth Bridge, is the Contra-Aquincum, a 4th century Roman castle, as well as the Inner City Parish Church. The latter was once a Roman basilica before being used as a mosque and then renovated in a Baroque style in the 18th century. The Elisabeth Bridge spans the Danube at its narrowest point in Budapest and is considered the most elegant bridge in the city.

Other attractions to look out for as you walk along the Promenade include the Vigado Concert Hall, the Little Princess statue and the Shoes on the Danube Bank memorial – a memorial made of cast iron shoes honoring the Jews who were killed in Budapest during World War II. And of course, enjoy great views of Buda Castle, the Citadel and Gellert Hill across the Danube.

Budapest Sightseeing Cruise

Budapest Sightseeing Cruise

star-4
After leaving dock 11 the cruise will continue under two very famous bridges, one of them is the Chain Bridge with the guardian lions from the street sides, beautifully illuminated during the evening hours. Passing the Danube Promenade – Vigadó Square will free your mind and take you to the next modern bridge over the river Danube- the Elisabeth Bridge. The dominant white color of the bridge connects the city into one. Above the bridge on the Buda side of the river, you can see the statue of Saint Gellért, after whom the hill was named. On the top of the hill a beautiful woman of the Hungarians – the Liberty Statue, is standing proudly with her arms open. Gellert hill is a great place to take a walk if you are a fun of light hiking, but the better idea is to join us for a sightseeing boat trip on the river Danube.
