Elisabeth Bridge crosses the Danube at its narrowest point in Budapest. Admire the bronze statue of Elizabeth of Bavaria, for whom the bridge is named, in the garden on the Buda side. This side also features Döbrentei Square with two monuments, as well as historical baths nearby. On the other side, visit the March 15 Square, where the oldest church in Pest is located. The bridge offers one of the quickest walking routes between Buda and Pest. Take one of the pedestrian sidewalks next to the road on the bridge and enjoy the views.

  • Nice bridge, pleasant to walk around and admiring the 2 views of the Danube, but architecturally it is not extremely surprising! Definitely worth a visit and walk it but it's probably a bit overrated.

  • We liked this bridge. The best photos to get of it are from the steps leading up to the citadel. About halfway up and night and you've got yourself a great pic. Thank me later with a helpful vote. Hee...  more »

  • It seems second oldest bridge in Budapest after iconic chain bridge.It looks more beautiful during night when it is illuminated.Many events are planned on this bridge by blocking traffic on Sunday for few hours.You will see different colors of locks tagged on bridge by couples.
  • We both walked this bridge and saw it from the river cruise. Really a sight to see and a WONDERFUL story behind it. Who doesn’t e joy a good love story? Not the most extravagant of the bridges connecting Buda and Pest but lovely none the less.
