Take a full day and come early if you want to see everything. If you like history you'll love this place. If you're Hunagarian it is a must!

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

We luckily came in one entrance by taking the castle promenade first, and then exited via the street above Dobó István. Along the ascending cobblestones promenade were signposts with information about the history of the castle in English and Hungarian. Beautiful views as we walked...More

We drove and parked outside the castle. The compound was reasonably big but not huge. There was display of the Turkish invasion. Worth a visit if one is in the area.

It's pretty neat and, has a nicer than expected museum inside. The restaurant there was more formal than I expected but had nice food options.

Although this is a castle with important history, you will get more out of the book than seeing the castle. We saw the walls from the outside because all we had read indicated the interior tour was not much. If in Eger, see it.

Generally the castle is so beautiful and it has an amazing panoramic view on Eger but the service...what the hell is that? The only language speaking is for sure Hungarian as always but I think they should know the most topic words in English. I...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... More
