we went with 3 generations including smallest children being 4 years old. Castle was great, not too big but lots of interesting things as well as interactive things to do in the square such as old fashioned playground, bow/arrow & old weapon shooting & other demonstrations

Expensive and there were a lot of restoration work in progress...you have to buy a museum ticket, then if you want to see the 3D movie about the related subjects you have to buy another ticket...

Although the Eger Castle was one of a big brands of Hungary, now it is only a ruin, but no more. The just-made 3D animation is far away from the reality. You get just a few, old walls and an average gate. No worth to see it. Big disappointment.

Eger Castle is an amazing old place. Unfortunately we couldn't visit the underground because was closed Sunday morning. Staying on the castle walls you can find beautiful views of the old city. We've made a self guided tour, because we didn't find at all any information in English (only a bodyguard told us something in English). At the entrance, the... More

As a part of mine Budapest trip I wanted to see the country side. Internet suggested me to come here. The Eger Castle is nice but not worth to travel to Eger.

this place is simply amazing. walking there through the old town up to the castle and seeing the amazing view is worth the effort. didnt have a chance to take a tour or go in to the 3D movie but I'm assuming it's good as well.

You can do a self-guided tour of this place. History, nice views, great walking spots. There is a guided tour portion of the caves, but only at certain hours. I recommend calling ahead for specific times if you want to go to the caves. Great visit, lots of history.

Worth to watch the 3D cinema, which shows well the town and castle's original look. The walls are under reconstruction right now (2015 January), but most of the place is open for visit, and most of it is for free.
