Step back in time in history when Hungary was great, this is replica of what is now Romania, birthplace of one of the greatest Hungarian persons. Walk to to the back side to see lots of statues, even Bela Lugosi is there

Stunning castle and grounds. As per most of the popular buildings the grounds are flawlessly clean. It's ideal for a slow stroll, there's a small church located in the grounds to visit too

Walked around the castle and enjoyed the surrounding area, an especially beautiful setting in October with the fall colours. The Castle was busy with large groups. Tip: It is not possible to walk completely around the castle. Great photo opportunities.

I loved the humour in the style of the buildings and surrounding areas. Very interesting and photogenic. You will want to have plenty of time to go around the buildings, so check the opening times on their website.

We were taken here as the first stop on our Budapest Tour. Interesting castle, but was unable to go inside as it is closed to the public. There is a museum attached and a lovely park.

If you take a walk in the City Park near the Heroes Square, you must also step inside the courtyards of this beautiful fairytale castle. It is a shame that they don't offer tours of the inside but there is a museum.

This isn't a castle at all, merely a reproduction when the millenium celebration was held. Pretty to look at, but if you're looking for a true historical castle, you can avoid this.

Quite interesting walking round and we enjoyed the changing of the guard. You had to pay to go in the museums and it was hard to find where to buy tickets so we did not bother.

If you follow Andrassy street north out of downtown Budapest you'll be led to a big park with this castle at it's center. You can't miss it as it's quite the spectacle, and I feel it even looks a bit like Dracula's castle. Get some...More

It must be possible... Gates are open. No guards. No tickets. No security. The tour is all free. People walking around freely. And wedding photos must be free/possible too (I assume, I guess).

You can book the tower tours as you enter the museum (although I would not bother with the gate tower as there is really not much to see). We just went and paid for what we wanted on the day and there was no problem with... More
