I like Elizabeth Bridge. Its simple cleansing forms, as it overlays the Danube with a single dynamic arc, and as the white bridge is reflected in the blue Danube. Other ones can be fancier, or more spectacular, but she is my favorite.

Visited on Sunday 8th October, there are numerous bridges over the Danube, all have their own style and this one is no different. Best viewed lit up at night.

Nothing spectacular about this bridge, except that it has great city views of Budapest and it crosses the Danube river and it was named after Elisabeth of Bavaria. Architecturaly the Chain bridge is a much nicer bridge.

The Elisabeth Bridge was named after the late 19th century Hungarian Queen Elisabeth. It’s the shortest of the 4 bridges across the Danube linking Buda’s Gellert neighborhood and Pest’s 5th district.

Magnificent views day or night, a good landmark for keeping your bearings in Budapest. Close to the cruise ship docking points.

The Elisabeth Bridge was the closest to our hotel and is also the closest bridge to Gellert Hill. It allows for good views of the Chain Bridge a little further down the river.

This is one of the 8 famous bridges of Budapest. Recommended as a tourist spot, but there's nothing much other than the nice view of the Danube and the city on either side. You will also get a close look of the bridge, if you...More

The present bridge was constructed between 1960 and 1964, the previous suspension bridge [which was for over twenty years the world's longest suspension bridge] was in 1945 blown up by the retreating German troops along with other Budapest bridges. It was the only Danube bridge...More
