“Avoid Until Safe!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

This historic site is important to Hungarian history. However, under renovation it s unsafe. Slippery stones, iron rods hanging overhead...no tourist entrance signs anywhere...a visit here could give you another visit to a local hospital!
Tip: not much to see inside anyway...

“Not a tourists delight”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Hungary is not really set up for tourism. Not a lot of information in English and the Castle grounds are having some major re construction done. Avoid it when it is wet as it is really slippery and muddy

“Castles and History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

We loved this castle, we all enjoyed the trip, my daughter was very attentive to the person who was telling everyone its history and what happened to the castle in 1552 during the Siege of Eger. Although shes only 3 and wouldnt understand the whole thing the lady was saying but she was in her best behavior during the tour. Anyway this place is really nice, will surely recommend to everyone not to miss this place when you visit Eger!

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

Entrance under construction. Poorly marked both to get to entrance and find things inside castle. Castle needs more work so that visitors can appreciate it more. Art and history museums very good. Not as good as other monuments in Europe.
