Into the bones of a manor house
Feb 2020 • Family
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.

Royal Palace
Aug 2019
This is where King Charles I set up shop when he moved his court to Visegrad and later what the Renaissance King Matthias renovated as his summer palace. A lot of it is in ruins now but the excavation and reconstruction work continues and they've done quite well so far. We roamed all the ruins first and then the inside areas and exhibition rooms. I especially liked the kitchen, the stoves and the Fountain of Hercules. Don't miss the miniature model of what the palace supposedly used to look like. Tickets 1300 HUF pp.

A popular attraction in Visegrad !!
Jul 2019
We came here during our Danube river cruise with Avalon Waterways. Some part of the palace has been restored. Unfortunately we were here just for about 30 minutes, so we could not see much except for nice garden and exterior of palace, which looked quite good. It is open everyday from 9 to 5.

Visit during the medieval games festival
Jul 2019 • Friends
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.

Royal Palace
Jun 2019 • Family
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.

Great with some disappointments
Sep 2018 • Couples
Great palace! Lovely views and well done from a restoration point of view - enough to help our imagination but not too much so it appears like a medieval palace was built in the 21st century. Dissappointed that there was no Audio Guide available or maps/ locality guides with information about the various displays (despite Audio Guide signs all throughout the Palace).

Fountain of wine
Jul 2018 • Couples
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

Interesting palace ruins
May 2018 • Couples
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.
