Late-Night Dinner and Cruise with Live Music
Among the European capitals, Budapest has a special reputation for its indulgent pleasures and breath-taking vistas. Both are best had after dark, as guests of the Late-Night Dinner and Cruise with Live Music can attest. Taking off at Danube Palace after the sun has gone down, the 90-minute boat ride takes you around the city’s signature sights and includes a traditional buffet-style dinner and drinks as well as Hungarian folk music courtesy of a skilful string quartet. Set sail on the Danube River and experience night-time Budapest in this exquisite, immersive atmosphere that has all the best elements of the local way of life.
One of the major points of the Late-Night Dinner and Cruise with Live Music is to get you intimately acquainted with Budapest’s landmark sites. At night, bathed in tasteful lighting, they take on a whole new life and countenance. The city’s memorable architectural heritage includes the monumental House of Parliament, the old Catholic Matthias Church and St Stephen’s Basilica, and, of course, the Buda Castle. Veiled in a waterfall of lights, the Chain Bridge, the Elizabeth Bridge and the Liberty Bridge are sure to leave a lasting mark in your memory as well. Discover all this beauty and more while the talented musicians from the Rajkó Folk Ensemble weave their inimitable soundscapes and create an authentic festive mood on board.
