Why Go?

  • Most restaurants, cafes, shops close in the afternoon on 24. December and stay closed over the next two days.
  • Apart from some winter holiday concerts, there aren’t much things to do in the city on Christmas Eve, so a boat excursion with festive dinner by candlelight offers a memorable and romantic program.
  • The Danube banks are home to Budapest’s oldest and most famous landmarks from the imposing Parliament in Pest, to the Royal Palace in Buda Castle or the Gellért Hill.
  • You can admire these sights and the captivating night city view during the 3-hour excursion.
  • After dinner you can also enjoy the panorama from the open upper deck of the ship and snap photos to put on Instagram/Facebook.
  • Price is affordable and includes the 3-hour river tour, a warm buffet dinner of 4 courses with 2 drinks: a glass of Hungarian wine – you can swap it for a non-alcoholic drink –  and a glass of mineral water (0.33 liter), authentic gypsy music by the renowned Hungaria Folk Orchestra.
