  • I love Budapest, love the culture and architecture of this city, wonderful monuments, but sometimes look hurt at how bad Hungarians watching their cultural values and national heritage. The castle is in need of reconstruction and restoration, it is simply necessary, like many other architectural objects of this city. I love to walk in the castle grounds, very picturesque, colorful place in City Park.

  • We were walking in the Park of Budapest late in the afternoon and took the castle all lit up. Was having Christmas fair on his entry a charm in place. I don't know how your visit, but if you're in the inner Park worth the pens go at least in front.

  • Looks like story, worth it... is to the side of the square of the heroes, it is part of a huge park that the other side has the Szécheny Spa, the day can then be arranged to do everything for that area and finish the day in the thermal bath. The castle is a copy of Romania, of medieval-style even if it is made in 1908, surrounded by forests which are the City Park.

  • Very beautiful place. I visited it during some kind of festival and there was people and shops everywhere, but still the building is superb.
  • Lovely old castle right next to the baths and the zoo. The museum inside isn't really worth the money, stick to looking from outside.
  • Wonderful architecture on the exterior of this beautiful castle. It is lit up nicely at night time.
  • Castle was not open when we visited. I expected to go in. It's worth seeing to take a picture, but don't plan to spend more than 30 minutes here.
  • Located near Hösök tere this castle has a beautiful architecture, there is also a museum that you can visit
