One of the most beautiful bridges in Budapest with a great view to the old Pest side and the modern Buda side. A great place for a nice evening walk or some great photos above the Danube! Beautiful architecture, modern and old in the same...More

This is a structure which is unmissable in Budapest. The most visible part of the city with the interesting past. It is of interest that the formidable lions at both ends were undamaged even in the second world war.

We got to know the bridges in Budapest by their colour, Margaret being yellow and Liberty being green, Chain Bridge was between them and not colourful at all. This is the more famous of all the bridges in Budapest and central to the city centre...More

An impressive piece of engineering. We sailed under it on a Danube river tour, and I can really recommend doing a guided tour as the bridge has a very interesting history.

This bridge is centrally located and provides access to both Buda and Pest. It provides a connection to the Old Town area and Castle Hill. It is breathtaking at night.

The walk over the Danube on the chain bridge is very interesting, even more so at the night time as it is illuminated and provide a very nice optic.

From what I can see, it's in the same mould as the Clifton Suspension Bridge, which is a far more impressive structure in every way

The first bridge to join Buda to Pest - this bridge has a robust / solid feel and stands proud with its impressive towers and detailed wrought iron work.
