During this 11 km long tour along the Danube River, we will discover the most beautiful sights of the city, including the Buda Castle and the Parliament.

This tour starts from the Szent Gellért square, in front of the iconic Hotel and Spa. Going up along the River, our first stop is going to be the Várkert Bazár, which was recently renovated. It offers an exciting variety of events every month, including a range of big concerts and a club atmosphere. The neo-Renaissance garden is an excellent location for walks and selfies, with events held both outdoors and indoors.

Running past the most beautiful and oldest brigde of the city, the Chain bridge, we will continue our tour with running up to the Buda Hill, which means 50m elevation gain, including some stairs. We are going to run through the Castle District, passing the Sándor Palace, the residence of the Hungarian President, the Tóth Árpád Promenade and the Matthias Church/ Fisherman’s Bastion. As our feet echo against cobblestone streets, the castle’s medieval grandeur sets the tone for an immersive experience. The panoramic views of the Danube from this elevated point infuse our run with a sense of majesty.

Countinuing with running down the main street, this tour will take us to the next gem of the city, the Margaret Bridge. Crossing this iconic Bridge, our route gracefully spans the Danube, providing a unique perspective of Budapest’s dual personalities—Buda and Pest. The bridge’s graceful arches frame the city’s skyline, creating a dynamic backdrop for our run.

Continuing along the riverbanks, the Hungarian Parliament emerges as a monumental presence. This builing is an iconic building of Budapest’s World Heritage and one  of the most beautiful Pariaments of the world. Its neo-Gothic spires and ornate facade command attention, amplifying the historical resonance of your run. The riverside promenade allows for an unhurried exploration, with the Parliament’s reflections dancing on the Danube’s surface as you revel in the rhythmic cadence of your run.

Running down the Danube Promenade, we are going to run past the Gresham Palace, a luxury 5-star hotel. On our way back, we will run through the Váci street, one of the most iconic pedestrian streerts of the city. As we approach the Liberty Bridge, we are going to run past the Market Hall, the biggest Market hall in Budapest.

At the end of this tour, we are going to run over the Liberty bridge back to the starting point.

In the heart of Budapest, this running odyssey becomes a multisensory experience—capturing the regality of Buda Castle, the charm of Margaret Bridge, the historical allure of Parliament, and the lively spirit of the Liberty Bridge.
