Danube Bend Day Trip to Esztergom, Visegrád & Szentendre

by Cityrama - Gray Line Hungary Duration 8h 30m Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is AU$92

Embark on an unforgettable tour along the stunningly beautiful Danube River. Visit famous Hungarian landmarks in the Danube Bend such as the largest Hungarian Catholic church and Visegrad castle. Then stop in the artistic mecca of Szentendre to explore the many museums and galleries.

Esztergom in Northern Hungary is your first stop on this incredible tour of the Danube River. Here, you can visit the Primatial Basilica – the largest Hungarian Catholic Church. Pause outside for a moment to take in the stunning architecture before walking through the columns and into the ancient building. The interior of the church is no less impressive with its domed ceiling, intricate paintings and ornate organ. As you leave, you can glance across the river and see Slovakia – Hungary’s northern neighbour.

Next, your guide takes you to Visegrád. This small town is home to the ruins of a castle which housed the royal family in times past. Look closely as you walk near the Royal Palace, as this structure is a fantastic example of how many cultural influences have helped shape Hungary. Learn about life in the Middle Ages and enjoy the fascinating panorama of the Danube Valley.

On the way back to Budapest, stop in the artist’s village of Szentendre. Set into a unique, natural environment where the Danube meets the Pilis Mountains, this Baroque-style village is full of charm. Walk around the colourful town that was built upon mediaeval ruins and up the narrow streets to a 360-degree view of the river and sprawling city below. Enjoy free time to explore the village shops, grab a bite to eat, or visit museums like the Margit Kovács Ceramic Museum of the Confectionery Museum – filled with buildings and people made of Marzipan – before journeying back to Budapest.

The weather was awful so it wasn't a good outing. Vews were poor and we couldn't get up to the castle. Our guide made the of a poor day.

The length if the tour for the amount of sites and stops was perfect; however, touring the Castle in November was an extremely cold experience. Bundle up if visiting in the winter months! Tour guide was excellent, but it felt as if this tour was Spanish based and accepted English speaking customers. We were accomodated with English, but it made all explanation, descriptions, and instructions last twice as long, which was a little irritating since I booked an English tour. The lunch stop was nice; restaurant was clean, friendly, and with the appearance of "fine" dining. It served typical hungarian dishes at a reasonable price. If ordering wine from here, it's best to order a bottle. Glasses are served but with only 100ml is served per glass.
