PreviousDecember 2020


Spend your early afternoon in the company of some of the best Hungarian delicacies, an international crowd and the beauty of the Danube panorama!

What to expect

You will meet at the heart of the city with your fellow travelers and board the restaurant cruise at 2 PM. Prepare for an unforgettable journey while you sail across the mighty blue river, the Danube.

Your boat will leave from next to the Chain Bridge, the first -and some say the mightiest bridge of Budapest. From here, you will start your journey onwards. Passing iconic locations such as the Hungarian Parliament, the St. Stephen’s Basilica and the Great Market Hall, your amazement will be guaranteed. Munch on the best selection of Hungarian cuisine straight out of the kitchen of Chef Peter Molnarka and enjoy the ride as you turn around ahead of the Margaret Island.

Take in the view of the hilly Buda side while your boat passes them by. Sights such as the majestic Buda Castle and the Matthias Church on the top of the Castle Hill will be guaranteed to take your breath away.

Be careful as you sample treats from the fully packed buffet tables. You will want to leave space for the dessert as well!

Throughout the 90 minutes duration of the cruise, you will cross under 6 bridges of the river Danube. Taste famous Hungarian wines on board as a gratis for your ticket. If early afternoon drinking is too far out of your comfort zone, we have several soft drinks and sodas on offer as well.

Don't miss the view from the top decks of the boats! Clink your glasses for the perfect start of a day in Budapest as you touch down next to the Pest side of the Chain Bridge.
