Your 4-hour tour will begin with pickup at your Budapest hotel. A guide will then drive you to Godollo Palace, approximately 20 miles (30 kilometers) northeast of the capital. 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.
Your tour will begin with an interior look at the castle, while hearing some of the stories behind its rich history from your professional guide. Afterward you’ll have the option of walking through the park that surrounds the palace, or visiting the Royal Stables and equestrian riding school. If you’re up for a snack, sample a traditional pastry or two in the Palace Café at your own expense before traveling back to your Budapest hotel with your guide.
