#28 of 1,535 in Things to do in Hungary
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.

  • It's great to go through! day and night :) it leads to the baths and mount Gellert. very nice view of the Danube and the rest of the city. Its metallic appearance has something lovely! There are many Hungarian details about this building! Less crowded than the channels and in my eyes, the most beautiful bridge also

  • At least for me anyway 8-). In beautiful condition, in the restored bridge between the Gellért Hill, located not far from the statue of liberty, and on the other side the central market hall and a bit further the "whale", a nice piece of modern architecture.

  • Favorite bridge in Budapest due to location and photogenic architecture. I probably included too many photos... oh well.
  • What a beauty this place is.
  • Very good bridge.
  • 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!
