We visited the Hungarian Parliament in April. It was a really good walk around the building and the guided tour was very interesting. It's definitely worth paying to go inside.

Amazing building and architecture inside - very ornate and a bit over the top! The tour lasts around half an hour with a bit of explanation at first. It is not at all expensive and is good value for money when in Budapest. You can photograph most of it although the jewels cannot be photographed. A worthwhile visit.

Must see night and day separately. Lightning is incredibly beautiful. I preferred to see the building in the morning and after walked across the chain bridge. While walked around in the old city time was night so could spend my time more effectively and had great photos..

I was amazed by the prcised finishing of this building. It is a must to see at least from the outside! Looks majestetic and almost like a castle from a fairy tale. We did not have the option to visit it inside as on some days it is closed due to the Parlament summon. It is no longer free of... More

Walking around the outside of the Parliament building, it's impossible not to be impressed by the architecture. The building is stunning, crafted from limestone and sporting lots of towers. If you time it right, in the square the guards will come out and do a marching 'dance' routine. With swords. I don't know how often this happens; we happened to... More

So you need to get tickets early in the morning or online. The ticket booth is to the right of the building (if you're facing the Danube) and underground so lookout for it. Also - if you're an EU citizen you get a discount but it's pretty pricey for Americans/non-EU citizens. The tour is nice but a bit stilted. The... More

Found it rather boring, the guard put up a show, speaking hungarian, maybe changing shifts or something. It may be fun for old folks. Realy nice architecture. Did not visit inside because I was so bored but maybe when it rains or something, it might be a good option.

Dominates the waterfront. Circa 1896 but extensive restoration required after WWII. Lots of 96s in the design and a lot of gold used in the decoration. The cigar holders are a relic of another era!
