Elisabeth Bridge

Holiday Travel Guide
Elisabeth Bridge featuring a suspension bridge or treetop walkway, a city and a bay or harbour

Explore medieval church ruins and a picturesque park adjacent to this innovative bridge with an intriguing history of war and assassination.

Admire the sleek, modern design of the impressive Elizabeth Bridge, which features white cables and columns. Named after a popular queen and empress, the Elisabeth Bridge crosses the narrowest part of the River Danube in the Budapest area. Snap photos of the bridge in the evening as a complex system of lights illuminates it against the night sky.

Stroll along the pedestrian lanes on the sides of the wide bridge. Take in views of the river and the city that has been built around it. The bridge spans a length of 950 feet (290 meters). Admire the elegant design and shape of this white structure.

On the western Buda side, see the large bronze statue of Elisabeth of Bavaria, a queen and empress who was assassinated in 1898. Relax in the charming garden of Döbrentei Square that surrounds the statue.

To the east is the March 15 Square, which hosts the ruins of a stone church in its center. See the vestiges of the church’s cemetery in a crypt within a glass building. Learn about the square’s history as a medieval commercial hub and admire its Baroque buildings. Snap photos of the Baroque-Rococo White Friars’ Church, which dates back to the 18th century.

The bridge was constructed at the beginning of the 20th century. After being destroyed in World War II, it was rebuilt with a similar design in 1964. See parts of the original bridge in the Museum of Transport, adjacent to City Park.

The bridge remains open to pedestrians and motorists at all times and is free to use.

Elisabeth Bridge is immediately south of the Széchenyi Chain Bridge in the city center. Take a bus to one of the many stops on either side of the River Danube or ride the metro to Ferenciek Tere on the eastern side of the bridge.
