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.

  • beautiful Palace where Sissi spent a lot of time. It can be reached with a characteristic little. the grounds are very beautiful, too bad you can't take pictures inside the Palace. There's also a beautiful greenhouse to visit.

  • During our trip also in Godollo stopped to the Palace of Sissi. We have only the outside and not inside. During our visit there was a market in the courtyard and we walked in the gardens. Was quiet and cozy.
