Liberty Bridge (Szabadsag hid), Budapest

Bridge Tourist Spot
Constructed in 1896 for the Millenium World Exhibition, Liberty Bridge (Szabadsag hid) opened in the presence of Emperor Franz Joseph, who inserted the last silver rivet into the iron structure himself. This art deco bridge connects Buda and Pest across the Danube; on its four masts sit large bronze statues of the Turul, a falcon-like bird prominent in ancient Hungarian mythology. Destroyed during WWII by retreating German troops, it was the first bridge to be reconstructed after the end of the war. Take the tram or walk across the bridge to capture panoramic views of the Chain Bridge and Monument Hill. Put Liberty Bridge (Szabadsag hid) into our Budapest holiday planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • On both sides there's always something to do: the largest indor marketplace, with, 2 floors (and don't forget the fishmarket downstairs) and on the other side the cavechurch...
  • Such a beautiful bridge! Come check it out at night too!
  • Liberty Bridge was built between 1894 and 1896, being the third in Budapest, after the Chain Bridge and the Margaret Bridge. The bridge is located in the southern part of the city and was inaugurated by Emperor Franz Joseph who beat last rivet (silver). The four iron towers are decorated with Tur Bird.
  • Great view of the city. The bridge was closed for repair when we arrived so you could walk down the middle of the road which was cool.
  • It's not visited as often as Chain Bridge, but Liberty Bridge is beautiful in its own right.
