The area
Neighbourhood: Margaret Island
For Budapest, this island between the banks of the Danube represents a green oasis, especially during summer when its emerald spaces are much enjoyed by both locals and tourists. The gardens here are very picturesque; the flowers in full bloom give the landscape a variety of hues; the fountains add an air of freshness, making walks peaceful, joyful and romantic. A leisurely stroll will uncover a variety of sites, even the ruins of a medieval Franciscan church and convent are still visible.

    Amazing, and great in the heat
    We visited Margret Island to actually see the fountain and wasn’t disappointed. The music is random, Let it Go, Moana & Shakira to name a few (most in Hungarian). It was around 30 minutes long and you can sit with your feet in the fountain. That was unbelievably welcome after walking round the island in 35 degree heat with no breeze! Highly recommend visiting, not even for kids, we’re a couple who sat and watched the whole thing, twice!

    Brilliant
    Well worth taking local transport out to visit this. We went at night and was fabulous, colourful lights set off by the darkness of night. Fountain show reacts to the music. During our visit we had some pop, classical and opera music. Definitely a must see, even if you pop along for one song. Very unique

    Fabulous fountain
    The musical fountain on Margaret Island was wonderful. Thoroughly enjoyed. The fountain display is continuous and the music is on the hour for 15 mins. It's free to see the fountain and free to access the island The island itself was pretty with lots of leisure facilities and a mini free zoo. The no 4,6 trans and 26 bus went there.

    We could've easily watched it all day
    My mum's favorite part of our whole trip was watching this fountain. The movement of the water is so peaceful and hypnotic we could've easily watched it all day. If you sit close enough it also provides a refreshing spray to boot!

We have been staying in Budapest for a week, during the beautifully warm and sunny Easter break. Visiting this fountain has been major priority during our stay, however there is no information anywhere to say, when will the fountain re-start for the season. We have tried every evening to catch the show and left extremely disappointed every time. There is absolutely no information anywhere about the fountain's premiere for 2024. What a shame!

This is a great fountain, much better than the magic fountain at the north end of the island. We were walking around Margaret Island, and this was a nice place to seat and watch the fountains for a while.

An incredibly fun find. The musical waters lasts 20-30 minutes, and is different every hour. Hilarious listening to Disney hits sung in Hungarian.

Absolutely amazing fountain and the main highlight of Margaret Island. I saw some reviews saying it was under construction but in May 2023 it is definitely up and running again.
