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.

Our tour guide recommended we take a night cruise while in Budapest, and we're so glad we did. The cruise on the Danube was magical. The public buildings and bridges on the shore sparkled with lights, and there is nothing else quite long the Parliament...More

We did the 1 hr cruise at sunset. Efficient organisation, clean boat. Drink included when you get on. Commentary is via headset in many languages. Very smooth and relaxing.

Excellent views while enjoying dinner

We booked this cruise before arriving for the night of our wedding anniversary. The first drink is included in the price so we enjoyed some Hungarian sparkling wine as we set off on the cruise. One of the best reasons for choosing the evening cruise...More
