Royal Palace of Godollo, Godollo

4.0
#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in Pest County
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.

    What is nice is to take the train (very easy) and out of Budapest. The buccolic path leading to the castle is a pleasant walk. For the visit I recommend the audioguide which is just boring. Everything is described in each room in french anyway. A nice moment in the footsteps of Sissi but not only...

    Beautiful castle where Sissi stayed. The audio guide is well (I find it too long usually). The garden offers a beautiful view of the Castle. A visit worth it when visiting Budapest. The Budapest transport pass to go up to the station Ilonatelep of the H8. to buy a ticket to complete the journey. Beware, the castle is stationary Gödöllõ Szabadság (before the terminus of Gödöllö); the seller of the ticket to the BKK was careful to tell us.
