Elisabeth Bridge, Budapest

(220+ reviews on the web)
Bridge
Elisabeth Bridge crosses the Danube at its narrowest point in Budapest. Admire the bronze statue of Elizabeth of Bavaria, for whom the bridge is named, in the garden on the Buda side. This side also features Döbrentei Square with two monuments, as well as historical baths nearby. On the other side, visit the March 15 Square, where the oldest church in Pest is located. The bridge offers one of the quickest walking routes between Buda and Pest. Take one of the pedestrian sidewalks next to the road on the bridge and enjoy the views. For Elisabeth Bridge and beyond, use our Budapest travel itinerary maker to get the most from your Budapest vacation.

  • In some other city, maybe this bridge would have a better chance, but in a Budapest, city with such glorious bridges, this is just an average bridge, nothing to see really.  more »

  • Pretty solid bridge. Seems to effectively do the job of allowing people to move from one side of the river to the other. Quite large. You know. A bridge.
  • One of the legendary bridges connecting Buda and Pest. Absolutely a marvellous piece of engineering. Well maintained. It provides a vantage view of river Danube.
  • Busiest and the most widest bridge of Budapest. Not as pretty as other bridges but worth going to because of the view on Gellert hill, Chain bridge and Szabadság (Liberty) bridge.
  • The most elegant bridge in Budapest! Traffic is usually big on it, but offers wonderful views if you walk through, especially by night!
  • Pretty impressive bridge that any tourist will come across on their tour of Budapest. I took the Big Bus Tour which I'd recommend.
