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

Currently closed due to reconstruction works. But soon reopened. Rebuilt in the fall of other parts will be ...! There are people who prefer the rebuilt version. We have retained the semi-collapsed state like his. Nearby you can park your car. TOLL the parking lot!

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,...
