“Fairy tale”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Trully fairy tale castle in the middle of beautiful and calm city park. Very charming place with pleasant atmosphere. We combined nice sunny day walk through this city park with fantastic Szechenyi Thermal baths. Great tip where to start a day in Budapest!

“Worth wandering around outside and discover a cute church”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

What's inside isn't much of interest unless you are hugely into agricultural museum. The grounds near the castle is beautiful. There is a small, but beautiful gothic church nearby as well as well maintained grounds. Do take some photos and stroll, perhaps hang by the lake.

“Fairy tale place”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Lovely place to wander around, both the buildings and the park. The church wasn't much to see but everything else is photogenic. We did get hassled by a violin player who gave us abuse when we said we didn't have time to listen to him play but the rest was excellent.

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

The castles are a delight to look at and the place is blessed with a good set of gardens as well so the trip to the place makes it an amazing experience. The whole architectural and structural specifications of the castles is something you do not want to miss and after all that wandering and appreciating the statues around, you could relax and enjoy in the park besides.
