This is a plce that everybody shoud visit if they are near to gödöllő. A beautifull palace with a gorgeous park with a lot of nice plants. Could be a good program for the whole family.

The Godollo palace is very small compared to the other palaces Sisi lived in but it does have an appeal of its own. Plus, you felt you could have lived in it.. it wasn't so ott or huge that it felt impersonal/just for show like so many of the larger palaces you see. It was easy to imagine the family... More

So, this family owns two palaces and a whole lot of land, and poor queen Sisi had a rough life? Please... Good for a short visit, but if you see their palace in Vienna, this one is no big deal. Audio guide is extensive and well done for English. Coffe shop has strong coffee, thank god! Clean bathrooms on the... More

A beautiful palace well worth a visit. We took an escorted tour from Budapest which was excellent as we were told which room was what. A very lovely place a favourite of Sisi

Step back in time to the the height of the Austro-Hungarian dual monarchy. The building even coined an architectural name: Gödöllö Baroque. The palace was originally built by a leading member of the Austro-Hungarian nobility, Count Grassalkovich (whose equally splendidly restored palace in Bratislava is now home to the President of Slovakia, and thus sadly not open to the public)....

Gödöllö was given to Elizabeth and Franz-Joseph when they became queen & king of Hungary on top of their titles in Austria. Being a smaller residence than Schönbrünn, legend has it that Elizabeth was happier in G. G has been intensely restored in the 80s and now is a joy to visit - even open on January 1st. The visit...

In order to reach this Royal Castle, unless you drive a car, the best way is to take the subway Nº 2 (red line) to the end station (Örs Vezér tere), cross to the local electric train (HÉV) and take it to Gödöllö. There are 4 stations in this city, get off on the second (Szabadság-tér) and just across ther... More

Really enjoyed our visit to the lavish and well kept house. Reminded me of Chatsworth in England. Well worth a visit.
