Fantastically maintained grounds and structures. Definitely go through the museum in the main residence, well worth the extra fees. Some areas of the courtyards were under renovation but overall a fantastic area. Close to the townsite and walking distance to a beautiful monastery. As with most things in this area, parking is difficult so be prepared to walk in if... More

This castle is what dreams are made of. A fairytale visit. If you are offered a longer tour take it because you will not want to leave. We had a marvellous guide - informative and amusing who made this come even more alive. It is one of the loveliest castles I have ever visited and the grounds and views are... More

Spent an afternoon here taking the tour along the way. Castle is very beautiful and the stories the local guides told really brought the castle alive. Well worth the visit.

Further down Aneeth from Dubai said "it was the first castle he's visited & without doubt the best" This is possibly the last castle I will visit and compared to the rest (& I've seen many) it is without doubt the best. I knew nothing about this castle, it feels like a secret - the world knows about so many... More

Best time of the year to come here is spring or autumn, and not in weekend, for sure because it's very crowded. It's a pitty few of the tour guides don't know much English, and those who speak well, are bored. They could storytell a little bit longer, we wouldn't mind at all. Near Peles there's the best 4*hotel you... More

Top tip. Take the tour. You are not allowed to walk around freely. So if you only buy the ticket you have to do the romanian tour

Built in the neo-renaissance style, similar to the Neuschwanstein castle, as the summer residence of the romanian Royal family, this is one of the most beatiful and romantic castles I have ever seen.
