After a packed morning, we took it slow on a private boat cruising on the danube enjoying spectacular river views of the city's main sights over a light lunch. After the 1.5 hr cruise, we explored the city on our own to burn off the calories!
Lunch Cruise on the Danube
Budavar (Buda Castle)
In the afternoon, we made a trip to Budapest’s most famous coffeehouse, Gerbeaud to experience the real splendour. The legendary Gerbeaud, founded in 1858 completes with an elegant late 19th century setting. Crystal chandeliers, marble tables, glossy wood panelling, velvet drapes and walls adorned with beautiful arts. What would be the best way to spend a quiet afternoon than sipping a fine coffee and enjoying fine pastries in this magnificent traditional coffeehouse?
