Bring the spirit of Christmas a little closer with these special 2 hour long cruises starting 2 times on 24 December! Budapest is an unforgettable sight at night from the Danube, especially during Christmas time when the city is swimming in glorious lights of the holiday decorations. During this very special 2 hour cruise you will have a chance to see all of the important sights on each side of the river, like the Parliament, the Royal Palace, the Gellért Hill and of course the bridges with great historical importance, while surrounded by the magical Christmas atmosphere.

The buffet dinner consists of Hungarian and international specialties, vegetarian foods, and various delicious desserts. The meal also includes Hungarian traditional Christmas favourites, like the "Halászlé" or fish soup. You will be serenaded by three members of the world famous Hungaria Folk Ensemble and Orchestra playing traditional Hungarian and gypsy music on board.

The price includes buffet dinner, one welcome drink upon entry, another drink of your desire and a bottle of mineral water.
