A nice walk across the river. Provides a good overview of the city and fast access to the castle. The architecture of the metal bride is quite interesting.

We walked to the Danube on our first night and walked over the bridge and back. Very impressive bridge and view of the city at night.

Although there is a pedestrian lane, away from cars, it is shared with bikes. Most of them go very fast and it was scary.

Hungary has several bridges which contact Buda to Pest. Most of the bridges give you a fabulous view across Budapest. This is one of them.....Take a walk night or day...you will not be disappointed.
