The Palace is small. Seeing everything takes about 1-2 hours. There aren't many original stuff, but you can see changes of the Palace across the time. If you are interested in Hungarian and Austrian history you can find there sth for you. But if you only interested in beautiful and rich interiors you may be disappointed. There are many purple...

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

This castle have a long history and said past couple of decades when it was only being an attraction without any renovation after the war. Today most parts of are completly renewed and looks as good as you would expect! My favorite is the garden. Nice trees, airy but not too much, big but not too large, it is just... More

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!
