The Margaret Bridge in Budapest connects St. Stephen's Boulevard and Margaret Boulevard with the tip of Margaret Island. It was built between 1872 and 1876. It is the second oldest bridge in the city. It was reconstructed in 1978, and its dilapidated condition justified the start of a major renovation in August 2009. The renovated bridge was opened in 2011. The views back towards Parliament makes for a perfect photo op.

With the Chain Bridge closed for repairs, this vehicle and pedestrian bridge is one of two ways you can travel from the Pest side of the Danube to the Buda side.

It is anchored by parks at each end.

When in Budapest Margaret Island, a beautiful green Island in the Danube, is well worth exploring and I would recommend you start your adventure by walking over the Margaret Bridge. The bridge is the second oldest bridge in Budapest and was designed by French engineer Ernest Goüin and built between 1872 and 1876. Damaged during WW2 and repaired afterwards the bridge was is a bad condition come the 2000's and so a restoration was completed in 2011. Margaret Bridge is 607.5 m (1,993 ft) in length and 25 m (82 ft) wide it links both Buda and Pest to the island. The bridge is decorated with sculptures of the Hungarian Crown Jewels and you get a nice view of the Hungarian Parliament from the bridge.

We had a really nice walk on the bridge. You can see both parts of Budapest. An interesting view to the parliament, liberty statue, the Danube river and the Buda castle

This bridge provides visitors with access to Margaret Island (though some river cruises do as well, as they stop at the island as part of the cruise). Furthermore, it's a nice bridge in and of itself, and it offers a good spot to take photos looking south.

One of the 9 bridges of Budapest and also the second oldest bridge in Budapest over the Danube ( the Chain Bridge is the oldest).
It is an interesting engineering work since it is not straight through but it makes an angle to connect the two sides of the city with the Margaret Island.
The bridge was destroyed during WWII - just like any other bridge in the city - by the retreating german army. It was rebuilt immediately after the war (most of the steel of the bridge has been recovered from the Danube and reused in the rebuilding of the bridge).
The most interesting feature of this bridge is the connection to the Margaret island ... that was added a few years after the bridge was actually build in the late 1800.
Today it is one of the access points to the Margaret island and it has a tram stop right at the passageway to the island. It has also a pedestrian walkway so you can also walk through it.
It is interesting and one of the landmarks of the city ... go an check it out.
