Discover Budapest on a romantic sightseeing cruise along the River Danube. See the old buildings - depending on the time day - lit up and get the best views while sipping a complimentary glass of welcome drink (alcoholic/non-alcoholic).
Climb aboard the boat at the pier at Dock 42 port next to Budapest's Szent István Park and receive your welcome drink upon arrival.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride as you cruise along the calm Danube River.
See the stunning city of Budapest from a whole new perspective and admire the skyline. Sail down the river and marvel at passing monuments such as the National Parliament, Buda Castle, and the recently restored Várkert Bazár.
Head to the open deck for perfect views of the illuminated Vigadó Concert Hall, or look at the floodlit monuments - depending on the time day - between the Margaret Bridge and Rákóczi Bridge from the comfort of the deck either with panoramic windows or open air.
You are free to change places at any time (since Budapest uses the illumination to commemorate certain events like Earth Hour, Fight Against Breast Cancer, and national events, the light may vary in color and intensity).
The tour is not guided, experience the city more like a local - the boat functions as a floating coffee house or pub experience with its own bar available during the cruise.
Feeling thirsty? No worries, treat yourself to another drink from the pub onboard or have a hot cup of coffee from the coffee house if you like.
Finally, end your cruise sailing back to the pier with long-lasting memories and great pictures.

Good to know before you go
  • The boat you'll ride on is the M/S Neptun; occasionally, other boats may be used
  • Seats are taken in the order of arrival. There are no assigned seats, though seating options are available
  • Food and drinks may be purchased only at the boat's bar (you can not bring/consume food or drinks on board)
  • The boat will start at the exact time indicated on the voucher. It is recommended to arrive at the dock 15 minutes before that. Avoid arriving only 5 minutes before departure. Prior passengers need to exit before boarding, therefore please do not block the entrance.
  • Toilettes are not usable 5 minutes before returning to the dock.
  • Boats travel faster downstream than upstream, therefore the time spent one way differs. High water level - and thus flood - affects the speed of the boat negatively.
  • Single ticket - each customer above the age of 3 needs the same ticket. Free for age 0-2 with at least one adult ticket purchased.
