Lunch and Cruise
A slow-rolling sightseeing cruise through Budapest that includes a delicious Hungarian lunch? Yes, please! The Lunch and Cruise event is one of the best ways to get to know one of the shiniest, most beautiful European capitals and immerse yourself in its culture and flavours. Meet at the Danube Palace at 1.30 pm and board the comfortable restaurant boat to escape the rush of the land dwellers and to look at Budapest from a different angle. The fabulous dishes and the breath-taking views promise a memorable, one-off early afternoon.
The Lunch and Cruise packs two of Budapest’s signature charms – its gorgeous architecture and supreme cuisine – into one powerhouse 90-minute experience. As a guest in the Hungarian capital, you will want to keep your eyes wide open. The water route on the impressive Danube takes you through the city’s numerous landmarks. The six bridges, like the Chain Bridge, Liberty Bridge or Elizabeth Bridge, surely look different from the river point of view. The House of Parliament and the Great Market Hall stupefy with their size. The Matthias Church and St Stephen’s Basilica, though not small by any means, radiate a different kind of power and calm. The storied walls of the Buda Castle tell their stories while the water’s reflections dance around it. All this and more awaits your hungry eyes!
Speaking of hungry, a delectable lunch buffet awaits you as soon as you board. As you sip your welcome drink, take your pick out of numerous Hungarian delicacies like goulash soup, stuffed cabbage, chicken paprikasch, sea fish in white wine sauce, polenta, strudel and many more. If you are already feeling festive, dive into the rich Hungarian collection on board – your ticket includes two complementary drinks. Should day-drinking not be your thing, soft drinks are also on hand. Once you satisfy your hunger, take your drink of choice to the top deck and marvel at the panoramic view of Budapest once more before you alight at the Chain Bridge and dive back into Budapest hustle and bustle.
