Picture the fairy tale riverfront of Budapest you will see during your dinner cruise: the two banks of the river Danube are spotted with brightly lit churches, the Buda Castle on the Castle Hill, the neo-Gothic turrets of the Hungarian Parliament, the palm leaved Statue of Liberty on the Gellert Hill, the cupolas of the Art Nouveau Gellert Baths, the elegant curves of the Gresham Palace (Fours Seasons Hotel) and the soaring domes of the majestic St Stephens Basilica behind them. You will be cruising in one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites with us, and one of the twinkling treasure boxes of the river Danube.
Budapest night views are charmingly romantic and breathtakingly beautiful as the city illuminates at night. Besides romance, the city is full of history, and telling tales of the faded glory, traces of the communist past. On New Year’s Eve, there is a modest Fireworks Show in the city center, which can be seen from the boats cruising on the river Danube on December 31.
We are confident to say that Budapest NYE Cruises are one of the most popular programs in Hungary, among locals and tourists alike. Each year most tickets get booked up by mid December.
Even if the top tier NYE cruise programs get sold out earlier than you decided to book, you may still enjoy Budapest on New Year’s Eve. Take a look at some other programs in the city in the New Year Budapest magazine.
