Sightseeing Cruise in the most beautiful part of Budapest

The route of the Booze-Cruise:

Our sightseeing tour on the Danube starts in the center of the inner city, at dock 11, which can be found at the Elisabeth Bridge on the Pest side of the river. Below you will find a list with the detailed departure times. After the departure of the trip, which lasts 70 minutes, the ship turns north towards the stream until it reaches the Margaret Bridge. Our first stop will be at the Margaret Island, where you can leave the ship to have a walk on the beautiful island or the bridge.

Our sightseeing tour gives you the opportunity to hop-on/hop off, so if you prefer to make a stop, you can easily get on our next arriving ship (the last hop-on hop off opportunity leaves the dock 11 at 6:30pm). Please find the exact information about the departure times listed above.

After the ship turns in a southward direction and makes another stop at the Batthyányi Square, it continues its' route until the Rákoczi Bridge, where the boat turns back. During the cruise you will pass plenty of beautiful historical sights along the river banks on both sides of the Danube, like the unique, neo-gothic parliament, the castle district on the hills of Buda or the Gellért hill with the liberty statue, just to mention a few.

Another local attractions are the 4 gorgeous bridges you will cross during the 60-minute sightseeing cruise. Each one is build in another style from another era, floating under the bridges gives your trip a remarkable flair.

You find a fully equipped buffet, where you can allay your thirst with a cold drink on summer days or a hot cup of tea on cold days.

The different faces of Budapest


You can choose the sightseeing cruise in the early morning ours, or in the late evening. Each time of the day has its own flair. The morning hours, especially at the weekend, are restful and still, the city is sleepy. After the darker hours the city is lit up and it is showing those incredible views you have seen on photos from home.

The evening cruises offer you the opportunity to watch the amazing Budapest sunset at the hills of Buda. The whole city gets a golden-red shine for this few minutes, as the sun will be reflected at the buildings and the Danube, this features a really romantic atmosphere to the surroundings. Don't forget your camera in your accomodation!

You can also choose a sightseeing tour after the nightfall. Budapest at night presents itself in a floodlighted coat along the river banks of the whole inner city. The bridges are amazingly highlighted as well, there is almost no traffic on the streets and with a little luck you can see the stars shining in the sky. Falling in love with Budapest is almost guaranteed.
