Romantic activities in Budapest #1 – A sightseeing stroll
A long stroll or a bit of sightseeing can be a really good activity as you can freely have a conversation and get to know each other. At such a time it is worth visiting the tourist attractions of Budapest or admiring the Parliament and Heroes’ Square.
It is worth planning this romantic activity while considering the season: the riverside of the Danube combined with a short cruise; the Margaret Island or the Buda Castle also provides a wonderful environment; while the atmosphere of winter evenings is made even more special by the lights of the walking streets. Whether you want to do other activities while sightseeing is entirely up to you: it might be worth to have a delicious coffee or even a romantic lunch or dinner to have a break somewhere.
Hint: while it is worth planning some of the stops of the romantic sightseeing walk – for instance if you want to go to a restaurant, reserve a table, or see the most famous sights – but do not forget how magical spontaneity can be! The most beautiful memories are made when you explore every corner of the city together – since Budapest offers some magnificent details.
Romantic activities in Budapest #2 – Taking the chairlift at János hill
The chairlift is a great venue in the city to have a date and it is really popular among tourists, with good reason. It can be done during a city walk, but the Castle District in itself is worth a whole day trip during which the chairlift is an added bonus.
While sitting in the lift, a magnificent view greets our eyes, especially when the sky is clear, since at such a time the fieldlands at the edge of Pest are visible. During the 1040m-long journey, we climb a height of 262m in a span of 12 minutes. Even though 12 minutes is not a long time, it is perfect to slow down a bit and enjoy each other’s company while taking in the views of the wonderful and romantic Budapest.
Romantic activities in Budapest #3 – Romantic cruise on the Danube
To go on a cruise on the Danube is truly a unique and romantic activity – whether we do it during the day or after dark. While walking on the bank of the Danube, we can stumble upon several trip organizers from smaller cruise ships to boats providing catering as well, in fact, if you are looking for a budget-friendly romantic activity in Budapest, the Budapest Transport Company’s (BKV) ship is also a good option, it’s true though that its design is less idyllic.
During the cruise – depending on the activity and the final destination – you can see our wonderful capital from a different perspective: in the evening, the reflection of the illuminated buildings provides the perfect background for the first kiss or for married couples and couples who have been together longer.
Romantic activities in Budapest #4 – Get ready to make a splash!
No matter if it is cold or hot outside, a romantic bathing in Budapest can be a perfect choice. You can find several places in our capital to do it and one of the most popular ones is the Széchenyi Thermal Bath and Swimming Pool.
Depending on whether you like bathing, you have to choose the venue according to the activity, but one thing is sure: it doesn’t matter whether you’d like to have a fun bathing day or traditional romance in a thermal bath, you will find the perfect place in Budapest.
Romantic activities in Budapest #5 – Kiss in the kiss room, walk on the Margaret Island
The Margaret Island is without a doubt one of the most beautiful places where a long walk in itself is the perfect romantic activity in Budapest. If you wish to enjoy each other’s company the entire day, this is also a good choice given that its large area cannot be explored in just a few minutes. It has several sights, romantic spots and even a pet zoo.
If you want to finish your walk on the island with something really romantic, then the legend of the kiss room in the Water Tower provides the perfect background. Learn the story, tell your sweetheart and take them up there for a kiss!
