Budapest Sightseeing Cruise on the Danube
Come an join us for an illuminated Budapest Sightseeing Cruise on the amazing river Danube in Budapest
What can you see from Budapest on board?
Our newly renovated, purple-white boat will take you for a special sightseeing tour from Dock 11, where you can make a tour any time of the day, starting from morning time until the night. Please see the departure time below.
Tickets for the cruise are available HERE, in our online shop, or at the place of boarding. You can even request your receptionist at the hotel to book your sightseeing cruise for Silverline Cruises.
The riverbanks of the Danube will definitely show you their hidden faces, which are visible only from our sightseeing cruises.
The bridges over the river Danube were built in many rounds, so that you will be fascinated by the architecture of the Chain Bridge, Margaret Bridge – unique bridges over the river Danube. The Budapest cruise next to Margaret Island will give you an opportunity to see locals walking and jogging on the island. A smooth turn around the Island will take you to the part of the city, which would be hardly reached by foot.
The route of the sightseeing tour
After leaving dock 11 the cruise will continue under two very famous bridges, one of them is the Chain Bridge with the guardian lions from the street sides, beautifully illuminated during the evening hours. Passing the Danube Promenade – Vigadó Square will free your mind and take you to the next modern bridge over the river Danube- the Elisabeth Bridge.
The dominant white color of the bridge connects the city into one. Above the bridge on the Buda side of the river, you can see the statue of Saint Gellért, after whom the hill was named. On the top of the hill a beautiful woman of the Hungarians – the Liberty Statue, is standing proudly with her arms open. Gellert hill is a great place to take a walk if you are a fun of light hiking, but the better idea is to join us for a sightseeing cruise on the river Danube.
The next little stop in time during your cruise will give you the view of the Liberty Bridge, which is connecting Fővám Square and Gellért Spa on Buda side of the river Danube. The bridge is covered in a green color, decorated with many little details, which might not be visible from the sightseeing cruise, we recommended you to take a walk on the bridge.
On your 75 minutes ride on the cruise you will have a chance to have a nice glass of cold beer in the summer heat or a cup of tea in the winter months. Sightseeing cruise is one of the best ways to see Budapest from a different point of view.

Buda and Pest in the Daylight
Budapest is one of the most famous tourist targets in Europe, as it is located in the heart of the continent and it has a mix of cultures and a mix of centuries' architecture as well. Beautiful buildings located on the river bank pretending they are inaccessible with their majestic look. Its a must to visit them on a bus tour or by walking around the city, but how can you really define them only from 1 single perspective? Standing in front of the castle makes you feel absolutely different, than having a look at the buildings from further away. Take a sightseeing tour on the Danube river and give them a chance to show you another side and atmosphere of their past-time message.
Sunset from the river
The sunset is one of the most romantic parts of the day. It is never boring and the best part is, that you can enjoy it every day (well, based on the weather, because it is hard to see it on a foggy or rainy day). Each city has a different face to show during the day, then during the sunset, until the sky became dark blue and the buildings are colored all in gold, namely the blue hour, just a few minutes before everything turns to dark/black.
We would definitely recommend watching at least 2 sunsets during your holiday in Budapest. And of course, we have the perfect spots for you. One of them should be on the Gellért Hill, where you can see the city from above, as it is already a unique perspective itself to watch the city. And the other one should be definitely a river cruise, as the view of the city revealed from the middle of the Danube is already unforgettable during the day, imagine the colors when the sunset starts to paint with its golden, shining glitters.
|Street Food Offer|

Do you prefer sightseeing tours at night?
No problem as well, we offer you night cruises all year long in the center of Budapest, where the illuminated city shows its best side. Take one of our sightseeing cruises based on the Budapest sunset calendar and you can make sure to arrive for the best tour. It can be a perfect program just like a dessert after a nice, traditional Hungarian dinner spent in one of the famous restaurants in Budapest.
|Child ticket (5-15 years old)||€12|
Hop on Hop off system
As an experienced traveler, you probably know the system of hop on hop off busses all around the world. This system allows you to visit the main sightseeing points of Budapest at once, but you can leave the vehicle and have a walk, when you find an interesting viewpoint. Then you wait for the next turn of the bus and join them for the rest of the tour.
This is exactly what we offer to you on our sightseeing cruises. The only difference is, that making a sightseeing tour on the river is much more interesting, than on the street, especially in Budapest, where the view from the river is amazing.
Join us at dock 11 and use the chance to leave the boat at Margaret island or on the way back on the opposite side of the Parliament, at Batthiány tér (a perfect place to take pictures of the famous Parliament). Based on the season, pay attention to our timetable and join us on the next turn. Be careful not to hop off from the last turn at the evening.
