River Cruise

River Cruise Budapest

When you come to Hungary, a river cruise in Budapest is one of the most important programs to enjoy. The Danube is the river separating Buda from Pest, and it is essential in the life of the people of Hungary.

In the old days, they arranged big events on the ice in the river! They no longer arrange such things (as the ice is gone), but with a boat, you can enjoy a nice trip on the Danube. There are many different options and ways to make such a trip. Budapest is beautiful during daytime, but it is even more beautiful in the evening (after sunset). As a result, you don’t have to think that one trip on the Danube is enough. We have been around in Budapest for as long as we can remember, and it is impossible to get tired of the view and the joy of a boat trip on the Danube.

Below you can read about different boat trips available on the Danube for tourists in Budapest. If you want to buy tickets for any of the programs, go to the bottom of the page and fill in the forms there.

Why should you enjoy a Danube Cruise in Budapest?
A Danube Cruise is one of the best ways to see Budapest, especially at night. During the cruise, you will see the beauties of the National Theater, a building most tourists normally miss out on due to its location quite far south in Budapest. The cruise in Budapest is also quite a bit nicer than the river cruises in Prague, as there are no slow stops or sluices in which you need to travel… you are to sit back and simply enjoy Budapest at its most beautiful, from the Danube.
