There is nothing more romantic than enjoying the fascinating panorama of Budapest from the top of the Buda Castle Hill. From the Fisherman’s Bastion you can admire the whole Pest side of the city, the amazing river Danube and the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site building of the Hungarian Parliament.
Celebrating Valentine’s Day with your better half doesn’t have to be expensive – the idea is more about being with someone you love and spend a great time together. And Budapest is a perfect choice for that.
Budget Programs on Valentine’s Day
Walk up to the Fisherman’s Bastion (or use the fun Funicular to get up to the Castle Hill), bring your own bottle of wine with 2 glasses and just immerse in the amazing views.
We recommend to come around sunset time (approx. 5 pm in mid-February) to make the moment even special. Fisherman’s Bastion (lower and upper towers too) in completely free to visit on Valentine’s Day.
Medium Priced Programs on Valentine’s Day
A great option for your Valentine’s Day celebration: the Castle Tour & Funicular & Cruise tour, which package can cover basically your whole day.
Start with a guided tour in the Buda Castle, learning some interesting things about the history of Budapest, then leave the Castle Hill by the unique Funicular (tip: amazing selfie spot!), also included in the price.
End the perfect day on a romantic evening cruise on the Danube, with a welcome drink in your hands, surrounded by the wonderful views of the riverside attractions.
Special Programs on Valentine’s Day
After visiting the Fisherman’s Bastion and taking some great photos of the two of you in front of the Budapest views, you can use the Funicular to ride down from the Castle Hill.
From here, it is only a short (15 minutes) but romantic walk across the Chain Bridge to reach the Pest side and join some of the special festive Valentine’s Day Dinner Cruises. Advance booking for the cruises is recommended in advance to ensure your places.
