Cruise the Danube River

By Viator, August 2014

4 482 Reviews | Add your review

Nothing compares to the romance of cruising the River Danube at night and seeing the twinkling lights of central Europe’s most beautiful city. Deserving of its nickname, "of the East", Budapest's magnificent buildings and monuments are at their spectacular best when brilliantly illuminated at night.

The Danube is the second largest river in Europe and is as iconic as the urban landscape that surrounds it. Once the dividing line between two cities, Buda and Pest, the Danube now slices between Budapest’s most outstanding buildings and illustrates the great periods in the history of the Hungarian capital.

A tour along the Danube is a must and the chance to gain a unique perspective on the city's illuminated sights. From Pest's Danube Promenade to the Buda Castle district, learn the history and heritage of the city’s great buildings and the personalities that helped to shape them.
