Royal Palace of Godollo, Godollo
(4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Delve into the fascinating life story of the Duchess Elisabeth Amalie Eugenie, better known as Sissi and spouse of Franz Josef I, Emperor of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, at Royal Palace of Godollo. The Baroque castle, Sissi's summer residence, was originally built in 1735, and has had a colorful history. It was looted during World War II, used as a Soviet bunker during the period of occupation, and later repurposed into a home for the elderly. Notice the careful restoration that has occurred recently to restore it to its former glory. Walk through the 26 rooms open to the public and the 31 galleries displaying personal belongings, as well as the Royal Suites, the Ceremonial Hall, and the gardens. For an extra fee, you can visit the theater, the stables, and an exhibit about horsemanship in Hungary.

  • A beautiful Palace, however small to European standards in General. In it, Sissi, the Empress of lived the Austro-Hungarian Empire that gave title to the film of the same name played by Romy Schneider. Worth the visit Yes.

  • We wanted to follow the advice and visit this castle which is not a castle but which is a mansion. The visit is interesting because everything has been restored but is relatively new and the staff is quite nice. The visit is done in 30 minutes tops, and the path for the visit is very poorly marked. Certainly access from Budapest is very simple, but it's not worth a visit especially for the price of the tour.

  • Loved walking around this vast castle and all of the rooms. Everything is neatly laid out and lots of descriptions. Once you finish inside, and check out the very nice gift shop, make sure you walk th...  more »
