What You Can Expect

Godollo Castle Day Trip from Budapest

Royal Castle of Godollo, Hungary

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.

It was a great trip, exactly as it was described and it all went very well. The hotel pick-up was good and Zita the guide was excellent. The drop off was fine.

Lovely trip outside of Budapest to see the lovely grounds at Godollo, as well as the interior with an extensive guided tour. Note however that more was said about Empress Maria Theresa than Empress Sisi who was only mentioned at the end, incase you expect a Sisi tour. If you have a morning free, definitely do not miss this.

Tours was with Eurama which is a low cost tour agency. The guide was very knowledgeable. Everything went according to schedule. There were nine of us on the tour. The guide spoke in both English and Italian for the group to accommodate different languages. We were able to be dropped off at Szechenyi Baths on the way back to central Budapest which was wonderful as it saved us a lot of time.

Pick up from the hotel but the do not return you back to the hotel only to a drop off point which was strange as we were picked up from the hotel . The castle was pretty and interesting nice morning out.
