Our Budapest evening bike ride evening takes a relaxed and very flat route and cover areas along the bank of the River Danube.

Next, we’ll glide over to Liberty Square to look at one of the last remaining Soviet relics in the city, before moving on to take the view – and no doubt some photos, of Budapest’s truly spectacular Parliament building. From the riverbank you can enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of the Castle District which includes Matthias Church, the Royal Palace and the Fisherman’s Bastion. And don’t worry, your guide will be on hand to tell you more about you’re seeing.
Ending In Buda

Here you’ll ride along the banks of the Danube taking in the Chain Bridge, Clark Adam Square, Elizabeth Bridge, the Rudas Baths and the famous Gellert Hotel and Baths.
