This is one of my favorite palaces to visit. It makes for a great day trip. They have a new renovated section of the museum that is really educational, interesting, and beautiful. Absolutely love the rich tangible history that this palace offers. Plus the gardens are a delight to stroll through in nice weather. The "Nosztalgiafotó" is a must. You... More

It was built at the beginning of the 18th century and is also known as Grassalkovich castle to the first occupant, who was a confidant of Maria Theresa.

Slowly but surely being renovated after being ransacked by the Russians during the 50 years of communist rule that blighted Hungary. Great place to visit. cross over the road, across the local railway track and take a walk in Sissy's park and get one of the best ice creams money can buy at the small cabin just before the park...

Whether you're Hungarian or not, this castle really gives you the late 1800s feel. I've visited a few castles around Hungary, but I've never felt so much in touch with the actrual royalty I learned about at school, especially our idolized Queen, Sissi. The whole complex is nicely renovated and well maintained, and just enough for a morning or afternoon... More

Loved walking around this vast castle and all of the rooms. Everything is neatly laid out and lots of descriptions. Once you finish inside, and check out the very nice gift shop, make sure you walk the grounds and walk down the path to the left where the garden centre/shop is. I was so happy to see such a lovely... More

It is amazing that within a short period this lovely castle was restored to it's former splendor after the end of the Communist regime. The artwork, furniture, paintings and artifacts are beautiful. My personal favorite was the room with the purple wall coverings containing the original pink upholstered chairs and tortoise shell tables belonging to the Empress Elizabeth (Sissi). The... More

The exterior of this palace is stunning and much work has taken place to renovate the interior but there is little in the way of furniture etc. as the place was used to house troops during the 2nd world war and later became accommodation for the elderly during the days of the iron curtain. The Hungarians have tried to return... More
