However, watching the sun go down is just as beautiful. There is hardly a better neighborhood to enjoy the scenery than along the Danube. If you’re staying at one of the excellent hotels along the Downtown section of the river, you will likely not even have to go far for a unique sunset experience. If getting up early isn’t to your liking, watching the sun set is just as much of a great experience.
You could always venture out farther and sit down in the park near the National Theater and the Palace of Arts for a tranquil experience to fully enjoy the sight of the setting sun. The location is known for its peacefulness, with locals often making a point of enjoying the park area here. It is also an excellent destination for a stroll or a boat ride down the Danube.
There are few better venues to enjoy the setting sun than one of the hangouts down on the shore. Sitting back at a bar at the base of the Chain Bridge, enjoying a drink and some background music all lead to an unforgettable experience.
That said, the sun going down and spreading its different hues over the skyline can be greatly enjoyed from one of the city’s rooftop bars. The open air, a cold lemonade or a cocktail and Budapest’s beautiful buildings dappled by the changing colors of the sun’s rays make for an animated work of art.
