We walked across this bridge many times as we were staying nearby. This bridge was also blown up by the retreating German army and had to be rebuilt. A lovely bridge with great views of the river Buda and Pest. Looks lovely at night as do all the bridges.

Just roamed around the bride and river central Budapest. It’s wonderful place to roam. If you are taking a day long tour better take hop on hop off service.

Elisabeth Bridge is a relatively new bridge of Budapest, over the narrowest part of the Danube. it is named after the Queen of Budapest and Austrian Empress Elisabeth (Sissi). We particularly liked the fact that though this is a very busy bridge they ensured that pedestrians had big wide areas to walk safely on. The bridge connects the walking paths on both sides of the river.

The Elisabeth Bridge was built at the narrowest part of the Danube, as it crosses Budapest, and was finished shortly after the completion of the Freedom Bridge. Although initially it was built as a chain bridge, after it was blown up by the Nazis in 1945, it was rebuilt as a suspension bridge. At first, it carried all types of traffic, but when wear and tear made it less secure, streetcars were removed from it. You get a wonderful view of the city from the pedestrian walkways, whether you look North or South.

Originally built as a decorative suspension bridge of chains in 1903, it was like all the bridges over the river Danube destroyed by the retreating German army. Unfortunately, it was the only bridge in Budapest which could not be rebuilt in its original form. The new slender white cable bridge was built 1964 at the narrowest part of the river to connect Buda and Pest once again. It is named after Elisabeth of Bavaria a popular queen and empress of Austria-Hungary, who was assassinated in 1898. Her large bronze statue sits on the Buda side of the river in the middle of a small garden by the bridge's gravity anchor, While the Pest sides gravity anchor are situated near the March15 Square and 13th century City Parish Church. The special lighting for Elisabeth Bridge was created by Japanese lighting designer Motoko Ishii. With a gift from Japan of (EUR 450,000) and a contribution of (Euro 150:00) million from the Budapest City Council.

TIP: Walk over the Bridge and you will get great photos of the river traffic and city.
