Don't miss this iconic suspension bridge when you visit Budapest. At 380 metres long, Chain Bridge is a local landmark to be found on many a postcard and takes its name from the enormous cast-iron chains holding it up. As the city's first permanent bridge across the Danube, it connects Budapest's west and east sides and was considered to be an engineering wonder when it was first constructed in 1849.
The inspiration for Chain Bridge came from Count István Széchenyi, a Hungarian politician and writer. The bridge is actually a larger scale version of the suspension bridge over the River Thames at Marlow in England. The current bridge is mostly a replica of the original - retreating German troops destroyed the original bridge in 1945.
You can enjoy magnificent views from the bridge during the day. Or visit at night when it is illuminated. Do take the time to visit nearby Fisherman’s Bastion and Castle Hill too.
