Budapest has a host of bridges for people to walk along and absorb the air of the city. Elisabeth Bridge is one such example of a really beautiful bridge. Running over the enchanting Danube, it connects the Buda side of the city to the Pest side of the city. It is comparatively new and is the third newest bridge of Budapest. The name of Elisabeth Bridge comes from Elisabeth of Bavaria who was the empress of Austria- Hungary when they had made pacts to tie up. She was assassinated in the year 1898 and the bridge is made in her memory. It is also one of the narrowest bridges in the city and spans only up to 290 meters as it is on the narrowest side of Danube. It connects the March 15 square to the Gellert Hill.
- Entry is free.
- You can visit the bridge any time of the day.

I really liked this bridge. Without it I would have had to use one of the other bridges to cross the river. This one was by far more convenient and looks good too.
It has an interesting history. I crossed the bridge and the view from it was awesome, because I was able to see tje whole Danube.
One of the most beautiful bridges along the river Dunabe. Along with being the connection point between the inner city to the citadel, it's one of the most beautiful points in the city to cross. Definitely worth walking along this fantastic bridge.
Such a place. Beautiful view of hills, buda palace, river and the splendid view of city on the other side.
Elizabeth Bridge in Budapest is one of the most spectacular bridges on the river Danube in Budapest. I would recommend a walk along the river on the Pest side, to be able to see all the bridges, then cross through the Elizabeth Bridge to savour its intricate details, over to the Buda side and go up the hill to see the Royal Castle. A day well spent.
