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.

  • Beautiful castle which is about 45 minutes from Budapest. We visited with the Guide, but I'd take the audioguide and would visit him in 30 min. ..

  • When we were on the train on the way to this place we imagine that we were going to meet a beautiful Palace, recharged, worthy of an empress, which would use as residence, however, was not the case. First, it is not a palace but a hunting estate. Outside can keep some nice pictures but nothing compared to those in the city. And on the inside if there are some curious things but nothing more, does not expect you much kind the Royal Palace or something, everything is very Spartan.

  • The Palace of Sissi we found but moderately interesting. Fading glory, against boring, with paintings of moderate painters (note the dolls eyes in some paintings). You may not photograph and we believe to understand why not: then it would be but be known that visiting this Palace not really worth it.
