Fairytale castle, beautiful with turrets and lovely surroundings. Be prepared for queues in July as holiday time in Romania. Many tours going round so hurried at times. Very nice coffee shop in grounds. Excellent guide, very knowledgable and good English.

if you are not a fan of 20th century royal interior, you better skip it (the outside looks great on your photographs though)

This castle is spectacular, inside and out. Outside the castle is visually stunning, from every angle. I spent time wandering the gardens with friends before heading inside for the tour. Inside is very beautiful also, take the tour to learn the difference between the rooms, their art, armory, and decor. Well worth the visit!

Very nice to see a bit a history at your hands, amazing to discover the details in their day-by-day living. Worth taking the extended tour which takes you to some private apartments. Pelisor Museum/Castle is much cosier and you should visit it as well to understand why Queen Maria liked it there better.

This castle is unusual in my opinion for a couple of reasons. It is a fairly new castle, only one hundred years old, and it is almost entirely decorated by carved wood paneling, floors and beautifully preserved. There was not a scratch or speck of dust anywhere. (We also had to wear protective slippers in the castle). The tour teaches... More

My husband and I visited this castle and the nearby Sinaia convent on a group tour around Romania. Peles Castle is located in the Carpathians, and it was build for king Carol I and his wife Elisabeta. They were childless, and they chose this location because the good air and the proximity of the renowned Sinaia convent would supposedly help... More

Even if it starts to be a bit crowded at times it seems like there is an efficient plan to get people trough with out a lot of congestions. I recomend to take an audio device and be able to... More

When you're in Sinaia or Brasov you should definitely visit Peles castle. Unfortunately, we were too late for a tour (last one starts at 16.15) so we haven't seen the inside of the castle but the outside of the building with the German architecture and the garden with the statues alone are worth visiting.

We visited Peleş castle on a hot summer day. There as quite a crowd of tourists there, but is's absolutely worth the visit! The castle looks beautiful on the outside, but inside it's really stunning! It is a great opportunity to observe a period in history and to learn about how the Romanian royal family lived. The details in the... More
