Formerly the summertime grounds of the admired Queen Elisabeth of Hungary, you’ll experience the stunning Baroque architecture and learn the history behind its walls and its residents. Initially the estate of the Grassalkovich counts in the 18th century, the castle was later owned by the Habsburg kings.

Afterward you’ll have the option of walking through the park that surrounds the palace, or visiting the Royal Stables and equestrian riding school.

Excellent tour! Although I was the only person on the tour, it was not cancelled. My guide was an extremely friendly and knowledgeable person. It is wonderful to see someone who has such love and excitement for their country! I am so glad I took the time to take this tour as a student of history this palace has seen some fascinating times. The Castle is still in the midst of remodeling as much was either taken away or destroyed by the Nazis and later the Soviets but it is well worth the trip. And I really appreciate that they dropped me off at the end of the tour in front of the Opera House. I hope I am able to take another tour with this guide on my next trip to Budapest.

Enjoyed this tour so much. Beautiful castle with great history. My guide was very knowledgeable and was fluent in several languages to explain what we were looking at. I would have loved another hour to explore the outdoor areas. Well worth the price

The best of our three tours. Again Laslo (tour guide) was excellent. The palace is very well restored, the inside tours well organized and a pleasure to learn about and visit.
