  • I would recommend to enjoy the outside. The inside is a museum but not super interesting. Frequently there are festivals with booths nearby and that's fun to visit.  more »
  • This modern castle never fails to impress. Despite it being less-than-stellar during winter time, we returned to it, and enjoyed a stroll through its gardens and courtyards.  more »
  • Totally amazing entering the park and looking through the gate and enjoying the view and all the sbeautiful buildings  more »

  • 1 Euro to get into the higher tower with a tour! The view is beautiful as well. Nice grounds to walk around and see other things. Wear good walking shoes. This location is not central so plan to spend time getting there (40 min from old city)
  • Vajdahunyad castle gives home for many different shows / exposures time to time which are worth to visit. Although you can't visit the entire castle you can walk through its awesome yard, sit down the shore of its tiny lake which are a very relaxing timepiece.
  • A wonderful building surrounded by water, the way it looks outside, it looks inside. Just breathtaking and makes you feel in the very moment. The flora wrapping it just adds the touch to its simply amazing looks 🤗
  • Nice little castle with lots of interesting point to see around it. Definitely worth a visit even if you are in Budapest more than 24 hours.
  • This is like a fairy tale castle and it is free to see from the outside. What a wonderful place for a picnic. Threats also peddle busts here. Worth a visit.
