See the landmarks of the city beautifully illuminated

People who visited Budapest on a day tour generally say that it's one of the most impressive cities they have ever seen in life. But I have to confess something: Budapest gets even more mesmerizing after sunset when the city is bathing in lights.

Heroes' Square, the Chain Bridge, the Castle, Mathias Church, Fishermen's Bastion, the Statue of Liberty. . . . Striking in the day, they shine in the darkness, artfully lit to display their full splendor.

Come and explore the stunning night lights of the Hungarian capital yourself after sunset.


This night tour offers you to take inspiring panoramic views of the city in a comfortable way.

The drive includes the following landmarks:
- the Castle Hill (Mathias Church, Fishermen's Bastion);
- Gellért Hill (Statue of Liberty, Citadel Fortress);
- Danube River Embankments with the Chain Bridge, Margaret Bridge and Elizabeth Bridge;
- the Houses of Parliament;
- Andrássy Avenue;
- Heroes' Square;
- St Stephen's Cathedral.

This tour is especially recommended for night cityscape lovers and photographers.

Photo stops are incorporated into the program at several important sights.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

5000 Hungarian forints - This is an after-sunset/night sightseeing tour when most places (except restaurants, cafés, bars) are closed so no extra expenses are projected. Nevertheless, some petty cash might be needed for items of a personal nature, drinks, etc. Please note that, besides cash, credit cards are accepted almost everywhere for payment, too.

What’s Extra

You are responsible for the purchase of items of a personal nature, or items that are incidental to the tour.


My tours are either light/moderate walking tours or very comfortable tours by private car/minivan. In the latter case, since I am not a driver, clean & comfortable A/C-d private cars/minivans with driver are organized for the tour.

A Recent Review of this tour

Nicolett is a superb guide, very knowledgeable, extremely articulate and exceedingly interesting. This is a fabulous tour. We had seen Budapest during the day, but the Budapest by Night Tour was the highlight of our visit to this beautiful city. Many of Budapest's signature places are illuminated so viewing them by night is quite an experience. Additionally, going to the top of the Citadel at night and looking down on all is Budapest is spectacular. We highly recommend you take this tour.
