We decided to give our hire car a rest and instead walked the 4 miles out of town to the castle.A very pleasant walk,although if you preferred,the trams run right there too. Although the Castle is,regretably,more ruin than Castle,there`s still enough of it left to make the trip worthwhile.There are lovely views down the valley from the top. There was... More

The castle is truly a gem of Diosgyor. It tells so much of the Hungarian history.The views from the top of the castle are breath taking. The castle is close to my heart and recommend it for everyone!

The castle is being restored and is a mix of original stone and some well matched concrete. On Fridays and weekends they have a horse show with old costumes (but we were there during the week). There is a guided tour of a panoptikum (waxwork historical scenes) - not too exciting but interesting to find that each scene had a... More

Built (to be more precise, rebuilt) in 14 century, the castle is a place worth visiting when you are in the Miskolc region. You can admire old walls of the castle, and also visit the exhibition of a small museum with a number of medieval arms and armor. When we visited the castle, we found only a few visitors inside,...

TRIP IN CASTLE DIOSGYOR BY RED TRAM By Zoran Slavic After two days stay at Lake Balaton, swimming and sailing on the lake, which is apparently the rest of the Pannonian Sea, I headed to the north of Hungary. On Budapest highway was straight, because it goes through the plains. Are interspersed meadows and cultivated fields. Twenty kilometers after the... More

Dear, ruined castle. Here you can get to know a close the life of king Louis and the inhabitants of the castle - purchasing, hunting, superstition... In the chambers (for example fireplace room, prison) of the panopticon can you see various medieval life situations. An interesting experience!

A real knight castle, but under construction, so not able to get it. View is magnificent and as it is in the almost downtown of Miskolc, there are a lot to see around the castle as well.

We stopped by for a few minutes to view the ruins of this castle. very impresive, and wished we had more time to tour. Ruins plus the adjacent restored village very representative of early hunhary communities

Been in Diosgyor Castle at the end of may,2012 and by chance we found ourselves in the middle of medieval festival. Ticket around 4 euro, but worth every penny even if we were there 3-4 hours. Excellent event, pity we didn't understood Hungarian as a moderator was explaining all the time. Traditional craftsmen - wood, metal, linen, leather -, traditional... More
