Less fit or elderly people should be aware that the tour involves a LOT of stair-climbing. Three or four of the people in our party were quite distressed, and wouldn't have come they'd known before. The tour's quite expensive and it lasts about 45 minutes. (Plus perhaps 30 minutes standing about waiting to go in.) Among other rooms, passageways, corridors,... More

a gorgeous building with 696 rooms. Saw not only parliment hall but the Hungarian crown jewels. Tour guide was excellent. A spectacular building not to be missed. Booked tour on line and paid on line about 30 days in advance. English tours are limited so don't exspect to walk in for a tour. One of my 21 day trip highlights

The Parliament building is beautiful. You can see it from the Buda side hills (Fisherman's Bastion for example). I would even recommend taking Tram #2 that runs along the Danube to see it from up close. The visit inside takes 30 minutes and in my opinion is nice but nothing more. The building is symmetrical inside so the tour will... More

The website says a 45 minute tour, but it was 30 if that. Interesting and beautiful place - a shame they don't either make more of the tour or lower the price. Website is out of date and you can get and print tickets at the visitor center, which is at the opposite end from some construction and near a... More

In general I agree with everything Lize H says about the tour, stunning building, annoyingly large groups. My husband said it "was not as bad as Versailles" which, if you've suffered through that experience lately is a fairly condemning comment. Not being EU citizens we paid about $32 USD for a 30 minute tour which wasn't really worth it. I... More

My teen son and I visited Parliament in June. I had previously visited 2 years ago but was unable to take a tour of the inside as the online system was only accessible to groups at that time and although we went an hour before opening twice; they were always sold out. This time I used the online system and... More

Well, the building is stunning from outside and beautiful from inside. We managed to get a tour in there with a help of our tour guide. As we both are citizens of EU, we only had to pay the half of the entrance fee. The english speaking group was huge. Most of the time we spent walking and waiting for... More

The building is magnificent. You can view from the museum side, the other bank of the river or on a boat in the river, at day or night. Just gorgeous. The tour is good and recommended. Leave some free time in case your tour start no immediate after your arrival. In summer, the exterior light of the building is on... More

Just for context, my wife and I are in our early 30s and are somewhat well-traveled. Big building, nice square, didn't go inside. There's a lot of big, nice buildings in Europe. This didn't stand out really one way or the other.
