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.

Beautiful

We did the river cruise in the evening and it was stunningly beautiful. The Parliament House in particular was gorgeous at night. The cost of the cruise was very inexpensive and definitely worth doing.

Legenda Dinner Cruise - a pleasant evening

Unlike some other dinner cruises, the food quality was very high. Plenty of choice in the 4 courses, a very large welcome drink (champagne) and onboard drink prices very reasonable. The young staff were excellent - very personable and attentive. The Budapest sights are seen...More

Nice because of the sites!

The boat itself was fine but the audio guide did not work. The views were absolutely amazing. Free drink is a nice touch but cold red wine was a little gross. It was super easy to book and pay through this page, you just show...More

I went with Legenda for our evening cruise - they have up to four boats a night even in October for their evening cruises, and even more during the day.
