Danube Cruise with Dinner at Christmas
December 25, Christmas Day is a quiet day in Budapest, people celebrate with their families and most of the shops/ restaurants are closed the whole day.
We invite you to a magical river cruise complete with dinner/drinks and music. A perfect program for this festive evening/night on 25 -26. December 2019.
You will enjoy the unparalleled panorama of Budapest included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
The two city parts divided by the Danube offer a unique combination of history and modern days:
- a baroque castle housing a history museum and the National Gallery,
- church spires,
- quaint buildings,
- a contemporary theatre and art hall
- bridges lit up for the night over the mysterious river.
Ideal for families with children, especially the tour starting at 19. 00. Kids will be delighted by the night panorama of the illuminated city and will surely enjoy the cakes, desserts and fruits spread out on the buffet table.
You will be welcomed on board of an air-conditioned ship with a nice drink (sparkling wine or fruit juice). It will take you on a 1,5 h/2 hrs long cruise with an excellent warm buffet-dinner of 4 courses.
In the romantic, candlelit atmosphere you can enjoy the wonderful view of the city swimming in lights. After dinner you can also admire the panorama from the open upper deck of the ship.
