While it offers excellent views of the city, Szechenyi Lanchid serves as a historic landmark itself: It's the first bridge to span the Danube River in Hungary. Built by English engineer William Tierney in 1849, this structure connects the east and west side of Hungary's capital city. The bridge features two road lanes, plus a pedestrian zone for those traveling on foot. Cross this well-known symbol of Budapest, marvel at its stone structure, and compare both sides of the city. Visit Széchenyi Square on the Pest side of the bridge, or head up to the Castle Hill on the Buda side.

  • During our recent visit to Budapest, this bridge was undergoing major renovation works and therefore it wasn’t possible to walk over it. In fact, a lot of the structure was concealed with hoardings...

  • If you visit Budapest, you should find 10 minutes to walk across the bridge. Amazing view of Buda and Pest.

  • It's a bridge... That's it....
  • The Chain Bridge , a suspended bridge crossing the Danube connecting Buda to Pest , is one of the most beautiful bridges in Europe. Lions carved in the stone at the edges of the bridge give you the impression that crossing this bridge you will enter in a world of story. A very romantic place. At sunset, the bridge is bathed in golden light and catches life. Overnight the lights flood the landscape and everything it flashes like Fairy Tales!
