They have really worked on this castle. Most rooms have interactive displays in different languages that explain what the room was used for at the time. There is even a humorous panoramic movie about the castles history. A must see.

The castle is renovated with EU help. Unfortunately the management is not prepared for the international tourism.

The castle was rebuilt in the last years, so you can see a quite new and beautiful castle. There is a really interesting guidance and a show with horses and bowing. The whole exhibition is animated and interactive so you can get to know the history of the castle.

The castle has been lovingly restored and dressed. The castle itself stands tall and proud and the restoration work has been delicately completed so that it is not too obvious (at first glance it looks like this castle has withstood the test of time - so good is the renovation work). But the real success story is inside the castle.... More

I have seen castles in England, Scotland, Holland (yes they exist!), Luxembourg, Germany, Hungary, Portugal and Greece to name a few, but this one is really good. My partner prefers a castle where they don't try to restore it and you imagine what it looked like. I can't disagree more because most castles I've seen are just a heap of... More

This medieval castle dated back from the 12th century is beautifully and very professionally restored. The primordial pieces are clearly visible, but since the castle is completely rebuilt it as it was originally, now you feel that you're walking in history. The towers are tall and massive like centuries before, and if you climb up to the top, you may... More

After spending several weeks traveling around and getting my fill of castles, churches and beer gardens.... This one stands out. It was actually used as a castle though the ages. The castle has been preserved. Very interactive and contrary to most all of the castles we visited previously, they encouraged touching and the experience. We had a great guide that... More

The last time we came to this City the castle was derelict, so it was amazing to see the reconstruction which has been handled very sensitively, you can see clearly where it has been restored, but it has been built in the same way. We first walked around the outside and were amazed when we went in as it seems... More

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
