Visegrad Citadel, Visegrad

(260+ reviews on the web)
Castle
Enjoy some of the best views of the scenic Borzsony Hills and the winding Danube from atop Visegrad Citadel. The fortress served as the storehouse for the Hungarian crown jewels from the time of its completion in 1249 until 1440. Climb the stairs within and notice the solid rock walls and surrounding moats. Check out the displays on falconry and traditional regional occupations near the east gate. If you choose to walk, chose from two paths: one that begins near Solomon’s Tower and leads you through the woods, and another, less-steep route leaving from the town center. Both paths are fairly demanding, so consider taking the city bus up for an easier trip. For Visegrad Citadel and beyond, use our Visegrad vacation planner to get the most from your Visegrad vacation.

  • They wanted to charge for parking, so we came back and continued our way. A little further down there is room to park and enjoy the panoramic views of the Danube bend as it passes through Visegrad.

  • 15 minutes on foot from hegymenettel is available, a positive surprise, it was also open on Monday. Arranged environment, but not the whole can be visited even works. staff was kind. Panorama was flawless.

  • A high place in the history of Hungary, barely 35 km from Budapest. The ruins of the Castle are worth visiting, the wax museum, however, is dated and a bit uninteresting. The view at the top of the fortress is worth a visit.

  • A good experience. We went by a bus, but if you want you can go walking too enjoying the scenic beauty along the way. The show was good. Some fight scenes where quite realistic. We were served hot wine and hot chocolate, which was good too. Also the view from the top is great overseeing the Danube river.
  • I suggest to climb up to the castle instead of bus because the view is beautiful even in the castle. The ticket is expensive. I can't accept that they have closed the ticket window for a half hour when a lot of people have been waiting for the enter. The stores in front of the entrance are very expensive. For example the mineral water is 5 times more expensive than generally... and so on.
  • Beautyful historic place, it is a must see if you want to visit something outside the capital. The from the castle on the Danube Bend is pure amazing!!!
  • Good view to the Danube. I ddn't recommend the vax exhibition.
  • It's one of the historical place of the Hungarian history. It's heavily under construction you can visit only a smart part of the castle. The view is beautiful. This is the best place to see the River Danube.
