Ever since I was a kid I wanted to visit this historic medieval castle... It is a fairly realistic, reconstructed copy of the original... The exhibits are interesting but I expected more in depth explanations of what happened during the famous seige in 1552... Also, many of the signs and write ups are in Hungarian only...

I was very surprised to learn this beautiful medieval castle. I had already been to delegate in the past but I had no idea how beautiful this historic monument.

Eger Castle is in a beautiful setting in the town of Eger, and striking views of the city are provided from the castle walls. There also is an exceptional museum on the grounds that contains fascinating exhibits as well as information regarding the history of the castle and the town. Unfortunately there is insufficient information provided in the English language... More

The castle itself is just like any other mediavel castle :) BUT, they had organized tours, that introduced the history of the town, the castle, and the famous battle between Hungarians and the Sultan's army. I really felt like I was time travelling. :) it was not boring at all, like usually in other castles, and the tour guide give... More

not much left of a once famous bastion against the Turkish invasion. Pleasant enough walk, with nice views of town. The so-called museum houses some interesting weapons from the middle ages and a mediocre archeological collection. A few pretty restored guns in the yard.

If you love history, want to learn fact over fantasy then Eger is the place to visit. Whether you drive, take a bus or arrive by train the town is walk-friendly. We found the food in two restaurants to be well above average, the cobblestone streets appealing and the Castle captivating. Plan on spending a whole day.

The ticket price includes also the guided tour of the fortress. (I don`t know about English guidance, we participated on the Hungarian one.) After the guided tour we had a gun show, with "soldiers" wearing contemporary clothes. It was a big experience also for us, not just for the kids.

Check out the castle's history before visiting so you can appreciate its significance in Hungarian history. The 3-D movie was interesting, and... More
