All reviews hungarian history eger castle wax museum guided tour turkish invasion nice walk panoramic view entry ticket three hours crescent moon extra fee souvenir shop worth a visit interesting visit historical sites city centre walls
Having read other TA reviews we opted to walk around the exterior of the walls rather than pay for entrance. There are helpful (detailed and technical) information signs along each stretch of wall written in Hungarian and English which explain the history and construction of...More
The castle is the coolest tourist attraction in Eger. The medieval castle is in a good condition. The castle was built in the 14th century on the hill and in 1470 and the Gothic palace was built. The castle remembers the fascinating history of the...More

I asked exactly the same thing. We were told that you had to pay an entrance when the museum was open, but the castle grounds are free to walk around when the museum is closed. So most of the time, you have to pay, even if you don't want to go in the museums (though they were more interesting than I expected).
There was a note explaining this in Hungarian (which I could just about work this out from), but the girl on the ticket booth explained it to my Hungarian companion too, so it is definitely correct.
