Danube Bend Excursion
Travel Along the Danube Bend and Explore the Cities in the Valley


Duration: 8-hours



With a local English-speaking guide and driver, explore the Danube Bend with a drive to Esztergom, Visegrad, and Szentendre. You’ll learn about the history of this region and visit some of the gems of the Danube.


The tour begins with an hour’s drive north to Esztergom, the cradle of Hungarian history. Once the capital of medieval Hungary, Esztergom remains the country's ecclesiastical center. Its huge Cathedral is the largest church in Hungary. It is also home to a medieval Castle, from the ramparts of which, you will see a circular panorama. Neighboring Slovakia is just over the river, a couple of miles from where you stand.


From Esztergom, you will continue to Visegrad. Its Citadel offers an unsurpassed view over the Danube Bend, a sharp turn in the course of the mighty river below where it hits the north-eastern mountain range and is, thus, forced to detour from its eastern course to the south.


On to Szentendre (St. Andrew), this jewel of a Baroque town, located only 10 miles north of Budapest. It is a charming town with cobble stone streets, an armada of art galleries, quaint little museums, cafes, and excellent shopping. After arriving, you will walk along the main shopping street of Szentendre where you may wish to visit the Margit Kovacs Ceramic Museum, which hosues a unique collection of the late artist’s best creations. Unlike most ceramic galleries, the Kovacs collection offers mostly earthen figures and genres that bring the rural traditions of Hungary to life, full of humor and candid observations.
