Soar high over the city centre or just wonder at the spectacular illuminated backdrop to the nightlife scene in downtown Budapest. Offering rarely visible vistas from above, the new Budapest Eye takes city exploration to literally new heights - and at 65 m, you will definitely see the entire city in one go… turn, that is. Budapest Eye spins in its super-central location in Erzsébet square, right outside Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest!
Whatever time of day or night, it surely affords the most definitive panoramic and dynamic snapshot views in Budapest as the lights change the cityscape throughout the ride.
Budapest Eye features 42 safely contained and naturally ventilated gondolas that offer unobstructed views. One ride comprises three turns and lasts about eight to ten minutes. Even if you don’t embark on a spin, the Ferris wheel’s LED-light display provides a beautifully rotating backdrop to the scene downtown at night.
Tickets for adults cost HUF 2,700 or EUR 9; HUF 1,500 or EUR 5 for children; HUF 6,600 or EUR 22 for families; and HUF 3,300 or EUR 11 for priority.
