The medieval fortress with its bastions and towers is a great fun for everyone especially kids and adults who once dreamed about living in a fortress or being a soldier somewhen in history.

They reconstructed turrets that were in ruins when we first visited year ago. But they did it in a way that makes it possible to see what has been added. The view on Eger is lovely.

Just a short walk up to the castle entrance from the main shopping streets below. Inside the surprisingly large grounds is a tavern, museum and archery station. Very nice views from several vantage points. Well worth the small admission and time for a visit.

Walking ticket is a safe bet. The castle is nicely renovated in places, rooms are ok with the occasional weird stuffed black cat.... or chickens. Just creepy. It's more on the smaller side. Lots of remodelling, very little original parts. View from the top is...More

The castle is very interesting and they have done a great job on the presentation and education. There is a newer section that is within the cellar of the castle that was extremely well done.

This castle is rich in history especially for Hungarians. But for outside visitors, this castle is anything but impressive. If you are looking for a great looking castle, disappointment is the operative word here. To the castle's credit, the ramparts do offer a sweeping view...More

This is one of the major attraction of Eger and I am sure any visitor will give it a chance. It is not a colossal construction nor had it any outstanding architectural glamour but the history behind it was amusing i.e. its successful defense under...More

Really nice view from the tower. Castle is small enough and an hour to visit is plenty. The entry ticket is 3 euro and worth the view but not much else to see. We didn't go inside to the museum which is additional fee.

An amazing fortress. The outside part of the castle is not very beautiful and not well preserved nor designed, is it neglected or under renovation ? Anyway the underground caves are quite impressive and the exhibition offers a great understanding of historic, architectural and military...More
