Godollo is about a 40 minute drive from Budapest . book this trip at your hotel and allow the tour guides to explain the history. This will help you understand many other historical sites in Budapest. allow 3 to 4 hrs and maybe take the lazar horse park tour, then return to Budapest for lunch

Information about opening hours & price of tickets can be found on their website http://www.kiralyikastely.hu/main_page. The purpose of my review is not to be extensive (there are plenty of good input from other reviewers!) : the interiors have been tastefully renovated, and the audioguided tour lasts about 70 minutes. We virtually had the place to ourselves on 7th May, as... More

We did a one day trip to Godollo while traveling through Slovakia. I am a big fan of Sisi (empress of Austria and queen of Hungary) who used Godollo palace as her summer home, so this was a very memorable visit for me. Sisi's apartments are filled with paintings and photographs of her. The palace has been recently renovated and... More

40 minutes outside Budapest, this Royal Palace is well worth a visit. A lot of the original furniture is there and you can see the history of the Palace through the ages. It is a small town but there are cafes around- though English is hardly spoken or understood.

This site is not worth visiting. There is barely any posted information and what is posted is mainly boring (which is a real feat, given how interesting the palace’s inhabitants were) and lacks detail. The location o the information also does not make sense. For example, you are well into the castle (room 26) before they have a bio on... More

Local value. It has a significant role fore those interested in the history of ausrto-hungarian monarchy. Worth taking a trip by HEV from the capital, do not expect too much!

The palace has been repaired greatly over the last 15 years, we visit on every trip, the train from Budapest stops directly across the street from the palace and there is more stores & shopping in the area. A nice half day trip. later

This is a very nice palace to tour. We had a fantastic guide who explained everything. The history of the palace and the people who lived there is very interesting.The women who work in the palace were very unwelcoming, to say the least. It was very warm in the rooms but they insisted we had to keep our coats and... More

Pleasant visit even if you're not passionate about the AustroHungarian monarchy. Many memorabilia from Sissi ; the castle isn't as flamboyant as the Vienna palaces, but renovation works are amazing. Horse lovers can buy a separate 900 Fl ticket to visit the theater (former riding hall), the stables and an interesting exhibition about horsemanship in Hungary. Gödöllö is an easy... More
