The basics

The scenic expanse of the Danube Promenade is ideal for sightseeing as you can spot several top attractions that contribute to Budapest's status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Danube walking tours, tuk-tuk tours, and bike tours often cruise here.

Independent travelers can easily reach this waterfront attraction while visiting sights in District V like St. Stephen’s Basilica, Liberty Square, and the Hungarian National Museum. While you stroll, be sure to stop at the somber Shoes on the Danube sculpture—a monument to victims of riverside assasination during World War II—located just south of the Hungarian Parliament Building, on the riverbank.

Excellent tour, knowledgeable guide and superb views
Balint was an excellent guide for the walking tour, a leisurely amble around some key sights and a great way to find out more about the city. It’s all the little things that are added in, which you can’t get from the guide books! We felt we were walking round with a friend, it was so relaxed. Buildings from the river looked stunning at night. Well worth doing for a different view.

When to get there

Although there's really no bad time to stroll along the Danube, an evening walk is a great choice. You can watch the setting sun descend over the Buda Hills and see the lights illuminate the Chain Bridge and Castle Hill. If you visit during the busy summer season, expect more crowds, so visit in late spring or early fall for fewer tourists and typically pleasant weather.
