4.3/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Nice to see, from the Castle you can admire the magnificent view of the loops of the Danube. We came here on a beautiful day. In our tour of the Roman Pannonia along the Limes of the Danube was one of nature's magnificent performances to see and not to be missed.

  • Beautiful fortress on the rock. There is a museum with a good exposure. Opens a magnificent view of the surrounding area

  • We very much liked visiting this place. It is not excessively expensive, somewhat more than four euros, and worth seeing the Danube from the top, as well as the center of interpretation of the Castle and the life and medieval history that there were. Guns, clothing, jewelry, and beautiful view on the entire environment. A penalty is only in English and Hungarian, or that some modules to listen to will not work.

  • A nice day trip from Budapest city, we got the train then the ferry across the Danube then walked up to the castle. The castle itself is quite nice but its the hike up from the town and the views you should come here for. I was disappointed at the entry cost being a little high but I suppose they do have a couple of exhibits to maintain. Good for people who want some fresh air and a small dose of history.
  • Hungary's biggest castle and best view overlooking the Danube river. It's an hour long trip from the capital and a day's worth of programmes for the entire family.
  • gyönyörű kilátás nyílik a Duna kanyarra
  • Great view of the Danube valley. However visit is poor. Doesn't feel like an old castle and museums is tiny and not teaching much.
  • Must see tourist spot. Spectacular views and a place of huge historical importance.
