It’s located in the centre opposite Almasy Castle, Visitor Center and Castle-Bath. It was built of burnt bricks in 16th century and it was one of the strongest fortress of the country with Eger and Szigetvar. This Gothic Castle is the only brick castle that remained intact in the plains. It can be visited and there’s a castle-theatre in it, too. It’s popular and worth a visit. We went there on a Saturday morning and there was a big craft fair in front of it.

A well preserved historical relic. It is gothic style castle made of red bricks from the 15th century.
Inisde the castle you can visit a little exhibitons about every day life of past times.
If you go up to the terace of the castle you have an amazing wiev to the city centre and sourandings.
It worts to visit, it takes 1-3 hours to see everything.

This is a fully renovated castle. Very very beautiful, full of interactive element. There are many programs, a guided tour available. You can spend more than and hour here, because there are many rooms to visit and three levels (ground level, upper level and the walls).
You can buy combinated tickets with the Almásy castle and it is a good opportunity.
When we where there, we could take photos with buzzards. They were really friendlyand well behaved. There were also a very small owl for the children.

Gyula is a beautiful city. It is famous for a few things and these are the Spa, Sausages, Palinka and a Castle. We were delighted with the beautifully decorated buildings, squares, streets. Next to the Spa and Csigakert is magnificent and unique Gyula Castle. More than 600 year old fortress. It is the only surviving Gothic brick fortress built on the plains of the former Kingdom of Hungary. It is situated at the side of a small lake, and is ideal for comfortable walking around the castle and lake. The Castle is equipped with a theme furnitures from history, the decor of the rooms is very nice and the view from the top is beautiful. But the beer and the palinka in the nearby rustic bar was a real pleasure. Very nice and worth visiting.

I'm a great fan of history and been to several castle museums in Europe. In Hungary when you pay 1500HUF for visiting a museum you can expect a great bunch of knowledge presented there. This was not the case in Gyula castle. First of all the castle is advertised as the only brick-made southern castle in its old form which is not true - only the inner castle standing there and it's been renovated by the locals several times.
The exhibition covers only 10 rooms, you can hardly find any information about the weapons and furnitures and it takes 30 minutes max to see everything there.
Comparing the level of service with any other castle museum it's a waste of money.

This is a must visit for travelers to Gyula. The castle is beautifully maintained and the grounds are visitor friendly. Well worth the 1500 forent admission price.

Nice renovated castle, and a large open green space. It was also a medieval festival when we visited, it was really interesting especially for children.
Not much else to do other than stroll and enjoy the silence.
Good for families with children.
