  • Very beautiful place to visit, the architecture is amazing. We did not go inside, but looking at the other reviews I don't regret it at all. There is also a small lake and a park next to it, so it's perfect to spend some time outside while you are there. Would recommend to visit it if you are traveling to Budapest.
  • An incredibly picturesque castle right in the middle of city park. There is a lake in front of it that has a nice restaurant and where you can rent pedal boats by the hour. The castle was built out of wood, cardboard and paper for the millennial celebration but was so popular that it was reconstructed out of brick and stone a few years later. The grounds are gorgeous. You can tour two of the towers and it contains the agricultural museum. Don't miss seeing it (I didn't see the museum or take the tours).
  • Attended an outdoor summer concert here. Lovely courtyard setting with a huge plane tree over the stage. With the evening breeze the leaves of the tree seemed to be moving in time to the music. A magical setting.
  • This is definitely one of the best castle I've ever seen in Europe. Located in a lovely park and every building here are so gorgeous. Most tourists don't come here but I really recommend everyone to take a walk around its neighborhood.
  • Beautiful place to visit. It has the museum of agriculture in it. Also check out the statue of Anonymous. It has a beautiful lake around it with small bridges. Also next to it you can check out the rink. This place has a great view from there. :)
