Christmas Eve Dinner & Cruise with live music - two times, 2 hours!
(on 24th December, at 18.30 and at 20.15)
The Budapest panorama was added to the World Heritage List by UNESCO. One of the reasons these sites were selected is that the banks of the Danube at Budapest illustrate the various periods of the capital's history, and furthermore the city has one of the world's outstandingly beautiful urban cityscapes. The World Heritage site inscribed in 1987 stretched from the Chain Bridge (Clark Ádám Square) to the Technical University on the Buda side - an area containing the Gellért Baths, Mt. Gellért with its Freedom Monument and the Citadella, and also the building ensemble of the Buda Castle.
Budapest has many faces. This vibrant city calms down a little bit at nights, lights are lit up, and a new city comes out from the twilight. We created this program for those who would like to enjoy the wonderful view of the city swimming in lights in a romantic candlelight atmosphere, and have a romantic dinner on a boat with live music. The meals are prepared by Chef Molnárka Péter.
The salon music is performed by 3 members of the Zoltán Kodály Awarded Hungária Folk Orchestra, including the world-famous violinist Zsigmond Vidak who was awarded the Bronze Merit Cross of the Hungarian Republic.
We will take you on a 2-hour-long cruise on one of our air-conditioned ships. After dinner you can also admire the panorama from the open upper deck of the ship.
There is a possibility for extra drink consumption on the ships, not included in the price.

Great way to start our Christmas Eve. We enjoyed the cruise, the food and the live music. The cruise gives you great views over the highlights of Budapest, which you cannot get from anywhere else; we specially liked the Parliament building. I suggest getting to the meeting point 10 minutes before the given time to avoid the big queue. The only thing I would have liked to get is one more drink included in the price. Overall a great evening, very recommended.
