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. Work out when and for how long to visit Szechenyi Lanchid and other Budapest attractions using our handy Budapest online trip builder.

  • The bridge is open to traffic but not foot passengers, so you can either cross the Danube via Elizabeth Bridge or Margaret Bridge on foot. If you are at Pest side, there is a metro from Parliament...

  • Yes, this architectural jewel is just as majestic as you have heard. The unique bridge that connects Buda and Pest is a must for photos and walks. The feeling of walking on something like that is amazing. Of course, don't forget to see it at night. It's great!
