The Danube Bend Travel Guide

Plan Your Danube Bend Vacation

About 40 km (25 miles) north of Budapest, the Danube abandons its eastward course and turns abruptly south toward the capital, cutting through the Börzsöny and Visegrád hills.

The most scenically varied part of Hungary, the

region is best known for a chain of riverside spas and beaches, bare volcanic mountains, and limestone hills.
