Fireworks Danube Cruise: each year on August 20 the Fireworks river cruise is the most spectacular cruise of the year. Yes, bigger than New Year’s Eve cruises as the city celebrates her birthday with the National Fireworks at the UNESCO World Heritage Site on the river Danube. New Year’s Eve is fun, and nice too in Budapest, but the fireworks are smallish compared to the August 20 Fireworks. You have never seen Budapest like this!

Christmas on the Danube Budapest

Christmas Danube Cruise: city cruises in Budapest on Christmas Evening, on Christmas Day, on New Year’s Eve and on New Year’s Day. Budapest Christmas is a wonderful series of events in the city. A cruise on the river Danube is a must, especially on December 24 when the city wraps up in family celebrations, and there are very few events taking place. Our Christmas cruises are exceptional.

    My name is Tobias Ekvall and myself and 7 of my friends from Sweden are looking for a great party cruise on new years eve. We want to have a great dinner, party some and then later head to A38 to spend the rest of the night. What is your best deal for us? I am a little bit lost in which cruise we should pick that fits us the best.

    With kind regards

      Hi Tobias, as in winter time our party boat (run on Fri, Sat, Sun from spring to autumn) is taking a rest, and on New Year’s Eve we launch our special Dec 31 party boat, I recommend our party cruise on December 31:
      This includes an open bar, so the price includes all of the drinks you can possibly have during the cruise party. :)
      You can stay as long as you wish on our cruise or head over to A38 party ship. Happy travels!
