This used to be the old capital building of Hungary, but it has been bombed and reconstructed and then ruined again; only to be rebuilt! These folks are resilient!

On one of our days touring the city by ourselves we visited the Castle. A great place with a terrific view of Budapest. The whole area around the Castle is lovely.

You really need to visit the castle and understand the history of the city and country. Lots of tourists, to be sure, but in October probably not as bad as other times of the year. Beautiful views of the city from here, lots of ATMs...More

You can do both, take the guided tour which is very informative, then stroll around by yourselves. Doing it yourselves is easy as everything is easily marked and explained, and it is well worth a visit.
