About The Organ Concert & Dinner Cruise:
Enjoy an unforgettable organ concert in the heart of Budapest and a romantic candlelit dinner aboard a heated or air-conditioned ship. Treat yourself to classical melodies performed by expert flutists, singers and an organist in St Stephan's Basilica. After the concert a host or hostess will guide you to the dinner cruise pier.
