What You Can Expect

Private Walking Tour: Budapest Castle District

Private budapest castle district tour

Castle Hill is one of Budapest’s biggest attractions and a must-see while you’re there. The medieval buildings, Royal Palace and sweeping views of Pest and the Danube keep the mood festive here year round.

Your tour will begin with hotel pickup in Budapest, where your guide will take you to the public transportation stop (ticket included) to bring you to the Castle District for your 2-hour walking tour. Your guide will regale you with anecdotes, folklore and the rich history of Hungary’s capital city.

Then head to the Royal Palace, home to the Hungarian National Gallery and Budapest History museum. Examine the exterior of this grand structure while learning some additional facts about the castle from your guide. You’ll continue on through the streets of Castle Hill, passing landmarks slightly off the beaten path for an even deeper understanding of the district.

The next stop will be at Matthias Church, where you’ll tour the interior (entrance included) and the lovely murals on display. On days when the church is closed, you’ll take a tour of the building’s intricate exterior. With its colorful tiled roof and neo-Gothic architecture, the church is a beloved attraction in the Castle District.

Fisherman’s Bastion will be the last stop on your walking tour, an arcade built on the fortification wall that is a prime place for taking photos. Take in the magnificent views of Margaret Island, Pest and the Danube below. Your guide will share recommendations for continued sightseeing before departing back to central Budapest.
