    Falk Dance Dinner Cruise

    by fatehpur Written Apr 6, 2007

    Enjoyed every minute of the dance and the veiws as we floated along the danube.

    It was reasonably price for the cruise and entertainment and the food was fantastic local cuisine.

    Everyone was friendly and it can be done by lone travellers, i had no problems. You are allocated a table, although with people you don't know but know each other - i had no problems enjoying the evening.

    Only one thing though, watch out for how long meat & dairy products are left unchilled on the table. On my trip they were standing too long for my comfort, so i advoided them but i had no problem with the variety of local dishes - very tasty.

    The beautiful Danube...

    by metallemon Written Aug 11, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We had chosen to make a night cruise to Danube and as far as I'm concerned it was really worth trying. We saw the city ligthed and all the basic monuments, Citadella and the Statue of Liberty, Gellert monument, the Castle, the old city and the Mattyas Church, the Parliament. We chose Legenda Cruise for our cruise. It's a beautiful ship, with helpful stuff. They offered us 2 drinks during the cruise and the only problem is that the guide has a problem so some people couldn't hear anything and the others could hear only English and French. However I really like the cruise and the view of the city.

    There are also plenty of cruises to choose (cheap, average, expensive). You could also make a 3-hours cruise and taste different hungarian wines.

    It's definetelly a thing to do in Budapest.

    A trip on the Danube.

    We enjoyed our trip on the Danube which lasted about an hour and went round margaret Island and back.

    Most trips start from the river bank on the opposite side to the castle. Our cruise was on the Duna Bella which had good seating and multi language commentary. The boat stops at Margaret Island where you can get off, if you wish, to explore for an hour before getting on the next boat for the return trip.

    During the trip you get a good view of Hotel Gellert, The Cave Chapel, Statue of St. Gelert, The Liberation Monument, numerous bridges, The Castle, Fisherman's Bastion and The Parliament Building.

    The price was 3.600 HUF which includes a couple of drinks. We were also given a free DVD. Check out the web-site for more details.

    Visegrad

    by Mariannka Written Oct 14, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you have time to get out of town I'd highly recommend to see Visegrad. The most picturesque way to get there is by boat on the Danube. You can find out about time-tables and ticket prices here: http://www.mahartpassnave.hu/. I'd recommend to get to the starting point early so you can get a good seat with a good view on the boat. As far as I remember seats are not allocated.
    Once in Visegrad, take a taxi or bus up to the castle and check out the history behind it.

    The Danube River

    The Danube River is one of the largest in Europe, I saw it already in many cities but never as wide as here. I would like one day to take a cruise on the Danube, all the way from Germany to Romania (if possible)

    A great experience

    One of the most exiting things to do in Budapest is the cruise over the Danube River. I suggest to do it in the evening, where you can see all the monuments of Budapest full of light with their reflection on the river. A very great experience.

    Pleasing to the eye

    by HotRodEtte Written May 19, 2005

    We took a Danube dinner cruise while there. As I've said before, Hungarian cuisine was amazing. Dinner was great, the weather (for March) was fair and the sights of the Parliament Building and the bridges were lovely all lit up at night.

    Danube boat trip

    by Sjalen Updated Oct 18, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Take a boat trip on the majestic Danube and see the great bridges and other sights. If a city trip is not enough for you, just carry on to Vienna!
    Nothing shows a city as from the water. Especially romantic at night when the bridges are lit up. :)

    cruising the Danube

    Definitely a must do...I went on a night cruise, it was beautiful. You can see all must-see buildings situated by Danube. Be careful...there are lots of different companies and prices are different,so ask around, you can get the same thing for two times cheaper price.

    Budapest to Visegrad

    by McPee Updated Jul 17, 2004

    There are river cruises on The Danube within the confines of Budapest.

    There are cruises which leave each day heading up the Danube to various places near and afar from Budapest.

    Mahart operate from the piers at Vigao ter. They can be easily reached by the number 2 tram.

    Longer distance trips tend to leave early in the morning.

    Duna By Night

    by purplekedi Updated Jul 24, 2005

    It's a bit touristy but it's a must do! To take a cruise down the Duna with some wine is a romantic experience. The red lights are just a bit too cheesy but, oh well...

    Sight seeing by riverboat

    by Maralaat Updated Dec 3, 2004

    Nice views. You should take this tour when the sun is going to set. You see the city from the river on daylight and lights of the night also. Really awesome!
