Even though this is not a real castle, the recreation is interesting and beautiful. If you can ignore the fact that it has no historical significance, then the castle offers quite a bit of photo opportunities especially when viewed with its reflections in the surrounding...More

The castle was built in 1896 to celebrate the founding of Hungary, 1,000 years earlier. Thus it is more of a monument of celebration, rather than a historic castle built as protection to fend off alien forces. It is located in a large city park...More

Beautiful castle located by a lake in the beautiful city park. Only a short walk from Széchenyi Bath and Hero Square. It's free to walk around - we were not in the museum. When we visited the castle, a singer and a little orchestra entertained...More

Beautiful castle with great surroundings. I loved this palace and the park, the lake. Perfect place if you want to relax and travel in time...maybe in medieval times.

A beautiful place with a large park, lake and the castle surrounded by buildings create a nice atmosphere. Take a sit on a sunbed on the other side of the lake and relax admiring the beauty of the castle. A very pleasant place to relax.

Impressive castle of architectural mix, pretty new though. Cool insides too, both from architectural point of view and the history of agriculture - all the stuff like handling animals and forests in Hungary and in human history in general. There is quite a lot about...More

We took a walk around the castle late one evening and it was lovely to be under the shade of the trees in the park and away from the bustle of the city for a while. Felt a little bit touristy and the overpriced souvenir...More

Although we did not have time for a proper visit to this castle, we admired its beauty getting a glimpse as we drove by. Heroes' Square is close by as are Szechenyi Thermal Baths.

We visited the castle and grounds on a perfect June day. I had been looking forward to Vajdahunyad Castle since learning that it was originally built as a temporary structure of wood and cardboard for the city’s 1000 year celebration, but then it was so...More

It must be possible... Gates are open. No guards. No tickets. No security. The tour is all free. People walking around freely. And wedding photos must be free/possible too (I assume, I guess).
