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.

Candle lit dinner cruise

We had a superb time on our dinner cruise. We were sat upstairs with other couples and although potentially less atmosphere than downstairs we appreciated the privacy. Because of it being a nice night the windows were slid open giving un-spoilt views (they provided blankets)....More

A Must Do

Budapest at night is absolutely stunning. This cruise is a reasonably priced way of getting some unforgettable memories and photos of the Budapest skyline at night.

Shop Around, there are Better Night Cruises

We booked this trip online based on a recommendation from a local. Unfortunately, we ended up taking a night cruise on one of their boats completely covered with a plexiglass of some sort which allows one to see the sights from all angles, it sort...More
