If you're interested in Queen Elizabeth, known as Sisi, this is a "must visit." It had been destroyed and restored, but you still got a good sense of its history.

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

A beautiful Baroque palace which has had a lot of good restoration work done.Went to perform with a choir in the lovely theatre in the palace, it is elegant, beautiful chandeliers & paintings everywhere. There are lovely gardens to wander around.

If you look for an activity outside Budapest, this is a wonderful place.. Sissi, the Habsburg Empress of Austria, Queen of Hungary loved this castle and spent much time here. More familiar to Germans who may have watched the Sissi movies, this castle is being lovingly restored. A visit is both visually a treat and gives an interesting history lesson.... More

Within hundred years this place served as royal palace, World War II Hungarian leader residence, Soviet army barracks, Hungarian seniors house and at last, a museum. Such story briefly reflects what was going on in this region within this period. If course, most tourists are attracted by a story of Sisi and her husband. For us it was bit surprising... More

Restored, nice maintained castle with Sissi's memories (furnitures, clothes, etc). Unfortunately could not make any photos. There are in the main building a tradiotional café and pastry shop with many fine desserts to try. The single tickets are a little bit too expensive and not includes the exhibition guides. The castle of the park is beautiful which can be visit... More

I love the significance behind historic locations and building. Not like the Versaille or Neuschwanstein fancy but still beautiful in its own right. We enjoyed learning more about Queen Sisi and her love for the Hungarian people as well. We were able to finish visiting the main palace in 1 hour and skipped walking through the gardens due to time... More
