We enjoyed this hike more than the citadel. You can really see inside as to how castles are built. They are doing a good job recreating the feel of what it was like to live here. The kids enjoyed the wide open spaces.

You should pay a visit in mid-july when the medieval games are held. Plenty of activities, guided tours, organized events with medieval dressed up people. You may check out how the surgeon used to work, how the prince used to have dinner (that even prepared in the original manner), how the fight were done with daggers and swords, how the herbal stuff was prepared, etc... and meanwhile live music played by the gangs using medieval instruments... I would come back one day hopefully.

The courtyard in the building got renewed, it is now a nice medieval yard with a marble fountain.

This is where the kings of Hungary lived before Buda(pest) became the capital. With a bit of imagination, you can see how this place used to be a royal house. It was a very interesting tour. There is also a playground for kids across the street but we didn't use it because you have to pay a fee for very basic playground equipment like swings, slides, some mazes, so it didn't seem like it was worth it.

Some historical effects and an old castle. Apparently the king had his fountain filled with wine. Lots of steps too and in summer very hot

This is the Royal Palace ruins in the Visegrad area. Parts of the palace have been restored and parts of it are still in ruins. The restored courtyard looks very nice. The place is quite large. From the ruins you can imagine what the place would have looked like before it was destroyed.

This museum is really wonderful and there is a lot to see as it is the palace of King Mathias which has been restaured so you can see the fountains, the gardens, the rooms, baths, the kitchen and a lot of pieces even from the roman period are exposed.
There is a short film relating the story of the castle as well.
Diggings and restoring are still going on so there is a chance as time goes by to see more and more remainings.

It's good to read up on this castle a bit before visiting to familiarize a bit with the history as well as the history of the site, as most of what you will see is a reconstruction, albeit a reconstruction based on seemingly excellent archaeology. The castle has a commanding view of the Danube and the upper Visegrad Fortress. We spent about 2 hours wandering the place largely on our own. There's little in the way of a 'route' suggested. You just kind of wander about, which we found quite refreshing. It's a nice blend of reconstruction and relics/ruins unearthed at the site. You come away with a strong sense of what happened here in the late Medieval/early Renaissance time. Highly recommend.
