Enjoy a relaxing night out in Budapest with this scenic Danube River cruise. Sip drinks including wine and Champagne and choose an optional Hungarian buffet dinner. You’ll be entertained by live music as you admire the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Budapest panorama, which includes the Buda Castle Quarter and Andrássy Avenue.

Head to Danube Palace in central Budapest in the evening, where your friendly local host will escort you to the cruise ship for your 1.5-hour cruise on the Danube River.

On board, enjoy a relaxing candlelit atmosphere as you sip drinks including wine and Champagne. If you choose the dinner option, you'll also enjoy a hot buffet dinner of typical Hungarian dishes (sample menu can be found in the Itinerary section below).

Sit back and relax as you take in views of Budapest’s famous UNESCO World Heritage-listed urban panorama, a series of sites that illustrate the city’s fascinating history and culture.

Pass the Buda Castle Quarter, Andrássy Avenue, the Chain Bridge (Clark Ádám Square), the Gellért Baths and Mt Gellért with its Freedom Monument. You’ll be awed by the sparkling city lights while enjoying live music entertainment, performed by three members of the Hungária Folk Orchestra.
