The view from the castle is really nice. The walls are very well preserved, in the interior there are few things as they were on the glory times of the castle. There is a weapon museum very well preserved. Inside the big museum you can see different tools, armors, coins and other interesting things. The price we have paid per... More

View was the best part, though we also visited the private collection of arms on display in the ramparts and the history museum in the former officers' quarters. Large part of the grounds is undergoing renovation, we didn't go there.

We visited Eger on new years day and on the 2nd of January, we managed to visit the Castle. The walls are magnificent and I loved the view, but when coming inside, there is only a mansion in a modern style, that I didn't like at all. We went around the castle wall and got a great view of Eger,... More

The castle was interesting and we had a wonderful afternoon there. The wax museum was a little bit corny but still fun. Definitely worth the trip.

Our family visited in between Christmas and New Year's so a few of the attractions were not open, but we easily spent several house checking out the different exhibits. The highlights were the suits of armor and clothing replicas including the Ottoman pieces. Our kids really liked the large diorama depicting the battle of 1552. The grounds were not crowded... More

The remnants themselves were nice and interesting, I diddn´t like the "new" things implemented in these old buildings. I mean things like a lift, like whitewashed walls or state-of-the-art staircase. For what few remnantsn there were I consider the entrance fee a bit high. However, the view of gthe town was nice (or, in our case, could have been nice,... More

It's a beautiful medieval castle with poor maintenance and constantly undergoing reconstruction.. Whenever I visit it's either still or once again under construction but it feels like, the place never really develops. The ticket system is quite uncomfortable too and we found it pricey for the type of attraction. Most attractions and sections were closed (as always) and at certain... More

Although sections are under reconstruction the castle is a must to visit. Very good 3D cinema show on the history of Hungary; an excellent museum; and a very good art gallery.
