  • Since the Lake was cold to dip, we visited the Castle. Both my husband and I spent hours on it and 2-3, while tour. A wonderful panorama.

  • Castle ruins with great panoramic views. Lots of history about the castle can be learned here. Nice little cafe on site with a bow and arrow attraction. It's a must see if you're in the area.
  • The old citadel is a short, steep climb from the best ice cream shop this side of Lake Balaton. They also have wicked good Italian coffee just next door to the ice cream. The top of the citadel is an even steeper climb, but absolutely worth it, has the best 360 degrees view ever. Szigliget is a true gem, and the tower is the cherry on top of the cake.
  • Great view to the nearby hills and the lake Balaton from the top of the castle ruins. Funny and contemporary performance in the castle garden. Souvenirs, ice cream etc.
  • As a kid, I used to love coming up here and play among the ruins. As an adult, I appreciate the view. As others have said, there's not much left of the castle itself, but it's a small trek and you can still admire the view as well as the size of the place, imagining what it could have been like when it was fully functional.
  • Well preserved ruins of medieval fortress,great view arround and to Balaton lake,very cheap entrance fee and great ice cream and caffe in bar at entrance..toilets clean,no wi-fi..big parking no fee,a lot of posibilities to eat arround in restaurants,inns...
