We visited this palace as part of a tour group. The palace has been beautifully restored (one wing still remains to be restored) and there are many well decorated rooms to see as well as a lovely garden out back if you have time for a stroll (more trees than flowers). No photos were allowed inside the palace, but they... More

We were very excited to be visiting this palace, but were a bit disappointed. The palace is not that big and while still beautiful we felt it was not as special as we expected. Maybe our expectations were too high. It was cool to see some of the original furniture, but we noticed some pieces mentioning that "maybe" it was... More

Continuing from our daughters obsession of Princess Sisi and visiting her palaces in Vienna, this was the next stop. Lovely building and gardens.

Spending 2 weeks in Godollo for a lacrosse tournament at the university. The Royal Palace is a great place to visit and would be worth the trip from Budapest. Lots of history and well restored. Get the audio guide as it makes it much more meaningful. Enjoyed learning about the beloved Sisi. The gardens are also beautiful! Would probably not... More

I got married there so I may not be objective :) but it is a fabulous place, the inside visit is not very long but you can have a good idea how princess sissy was leaving. The park is great specially in the spring and autumn. The cafe serves great Hungarian cakes !

We found it very interesting. It was very well restored and the information at each artifact was in several languages. The family history was incredibly interesting. Well worth a visit.

This is a 3 hour tour of which one hour is by bus with guide to give historical background of the palace and surrounding area. Much quieter atmosphere after the busy, hectic city tours. Ours was a small tour, allowing us to ask questions. You get a different perspective of the Hungarian past.

We read the novel "Sisi" -- a great read -- and then had to visit the empress's Hungary court. Married to Franz Joseph I, during the last half the 19th century, this palace was a royal court much of the year. Recently restored, beautiful grounds. We hired a private tour guide to take us from Budapest -- about an hour... More

We went here by HÉV which takes about 50 minutes from the end of metroline 2. Nicely in the green settings of the hills this partly renovated barock castle surprises by it's nice human size and beautiful natural scaped land gardens.

You could imagine being in the times when the Queen of Hungary stayed here. sheer elegance, rooms lofty and airy, plenty of paintings, lots of history and porcelain to admire. A very good afternoon visit and worth finsing
