We pre-booked the tour but could probably have got tickets at the desk on the day. A great building from outside and inside with a friendly and informative tour and plenty of opportunities to take pictures except in the central dome. Really good exhibition at the end of the tour too, plus the usual gift shop.

Very impressive building from the outside, the best photos taken from the other bank of the Danube or from the boat if you take a boat trip or use public transport boat lines. The interior not so much splendid but photography is allowed everywhere, do not forget your camera.

This is one mighty building, looking as a whole or coming near for millions of details I can't imagine any of the modern rises competing with this one, the most beautiful parliament in the world.

The outside is amazing and so architectural, apparently based on the design of Londons houses of parliament. It also sits next to the River Danube. There is a visitors centre where you can buy tickets and souvenirs and use the toilet. I arrived on a special celebration day where the guided tours were finishing at noon and all that was... More

It is a nice palace with great architectural design (inside and outside) too bad that they only showed us only 2 rooms from the palace

This classic building is one world's great architectural beauties - that's why it seems to be featured in all those Danube river boat tour TV adds on PBS! The best view of exterior is across the river from Buda Castle promenade. Take the inside tour of the building (arrive early) it is an historic beauty. They let you take pictures... More

If you are in Budapest, it is a must see. The tourguide isgreat, and the information shared is interesting. The inside architecture and beauty is breathtaking. The buiding outsiede is wonderful. You should be very quick for taking photos, as there is not much time given for it (most of the time) For non EU citisens the price is quite... More

Since the opening of the visitor center there were some slight change in the tour , they don't take you up anymore on the great stairways as they used to before which I found a bit disappointing, also the tour feels shorter but the building is still breathtakingly beautiful which compensates everything.
