Europe's first beer tasting river cruise offers a truly unique experience in the most stunning part of Budapest: the River Danube. Take in the sights of this bustling city from the water thatdivides it into two sections, the flat and historically exceptional Pest side and the spectacular hilly Buda side. If you consider yourself a beer lover, this activity is definitely a must-do while in the city.

What to expect

Following up on the emerging craft beer culture in Budapest, the program will introduce you to 5 of the best local brews from several carefully selected breweries around Hungary.

The cruise will take you along some of the most spectacular sights in Budapest.Witness the House of Parliament, the Chain Bridge and the iconic Buda Castle with the Fisherman's Bastion on the Castle Hill. Sail under 6 bridges of the river as you receive your beers one by one starting from the softer types, gradually evolving towards the more powerful ales.

Your host will introduce you to these brews and fill you in on the Hungarian beer culture as you slowly descend down the river.

Don't forget to look up from your pint and scan around!

You will pass Hotel Gellért and the Gellért Bath, the Citadella and the Great Market Hall on the way. After sampling 4 of the brews from the menu, you can choose your last one from the strongest porter on-board and a sweet black current fruit beer.

Will you be brave enough to step up to the challenge?

To end the tasting on a high note you can have a full bottle of your favourite brew to savour throughout the remaining of the tour. Enjoy the fabulous panorama from the open balconies of the boat as you slowly approach the starting point.

Don't miss the amazing photo opportunities of the world heritage listed banks of the Danube!

As your ship docks, take what's left of your last bottle of beer with you on the go and launch yourself into the legendary Budapest nightlife, fully charged with experiences and your new favourite craft beers.
