The Beer Cruise in Budapest is one of the best ways to enjoy your cold beers on a relaxing cruise ship on the Danube, gliding along elegant and beautiful Budapest attractions, while sipping away the precious and peaceful liquid to reach the ultimate chill out moment during your Budapest trip. 3 beers are included in the cruise ticket.
The beer river cruise is a 90 min (1.5 hour) pleasure boat ride for beer lovers, who can choose award winning Hungarian beers (Dreher), American beer (Miller), or the 400 year old wheat beer, the German Hofbrau.
Grab your well deserved Beers, and lean back on the afternoon cruise ship to marvel at the UNESCO World Heritage site of Budapest, the Royal Palace on Buda Castle Hill, the Matthias Church, the Parliament building, the colorful roofs of the grandiose Great Market Hall, and the leafy greens of Margit Island in the middle of the Danube.
