This beautiful caste offers wide-range of cultural and gastronomical programmes all over the year, for example folk festivals in June, wine festival in September with a lot of concerts and traditional hungarian folk activites. The castle was renovated in 2014, you can take part in different activities inside of it, and there are also knight tournaments, fire juggler shows, horse-programmes... More

During our trip to North-Hungary we visited the Castle of Diosgyor too. The history of the Castle dates back to the 12th Century but it has been almost fully destroyed during the centuries. Restoration works have been carried out for about 60 years and were completed by 2014. Due to the careful, professional and accurate reconstruction behind the castle walls... More

This was our first trip to the castle after being in Miskolc at least 10 times over the years. It was very nice to see the castle under repair, the center courtyard was closed because the crane was making lifts to the center, but there was still plenty to see & do. We will return in '15 and hope to... More

A wonderfully preserved medieval trip back in time- Miskolc holds several treasures that are Priceless. Seeing the castle restored and the activities held on its grounds is a thrill for all. From toddler to grandparent, there are fantastic things to discover within these castle walls. The castle would be an incredible setting for a movie!

I have first visited the castle in 2010 during a school trip and I can still remember climbing all over the ruins and just enjoying the sight and scenery. I remember I have been told they usually set up a stage and they have bands playing inside the courtyard. Imagine my surprise when i walked through the main gates of... More

The castle strikes an impressive image from its exterior on the approach, and is preceded by a beautiful, well kept street lined with quaint Panzios and Horse-chestnut trees. We checked out the 'dungeon' type tunnel to the left of the entrance before going into the main castle (and climbing all those steps!) and had a look and a read of... More

I had a certain doubt..but the reconstruction was well-done ! A real gem...and a gorgeous Knights Arena has been in construction. I disagree with one of the visitors, there is MUCH to do in the area, Lillafüred is nearby and the Castle Bath will be open again in a couple of months...

The castle is located in the urban environment, not really the castle what you imagine in your dreams, though it's fine to visit with chilldren, they will surely love it.

It is definitely a really cool castle but not a must go. The castle is very well maintained and there are numerous recreations of medieval events there, along with a restaurant. Unfortunately it is a bit of a pain to get there from Budapest and there is nothing much to do around the area besides the castle. Still though it... More
