Worth a Visit

If you're interested in Queen Elizabeth, known as Sisi, this is a "must visit." It had been destroyed and restored, but you still got a good sense of its history.

If you look for an activity outside Budapest, this is a wonderful place.. Sissi, the Habsburg Empress of Austria, Queen of Hungary loved this castle and spent much time here. More familiar to Germans who may have watched the Sissi movies, this castle is being lovingly restored. A visit is both visually a treat and gives an interesting history lesson.... More

Within hundred years this place served as royal palace, World War II Hungarian leader residence, Soviet army barracks, Hungarian seniors house and at last, a museum. Such story briefly reflects what was going on in this region within this period. If course, most tourists are attracted by a story of Sisi and her husband. For us it was bit surprising... More

Restored, nice maintained castle with Sissi's memories (furnitures, clothes, etc). Unfortunately could not make any photos. There are in the main building a tradiotional café and pastry shop with many fine desserts to try. The single tickets are a little bit too expensive and not includes the exhibition guides. The castle of the park is beautiful which can be visit... More

So much history a stunning venue with huge gardens. We got married here...would definitely recommend if you were looking for a fairytale wedding in Hungary. As for visting as an ordinary tourist, yes it must be done if a palace and history is your thing

I love the significance behind historic locations and building. Not like the Versaille or Neuschwanstein fancy but still beautiful in its own right. We enjoyed learning more about Queen Sisi and her love for the Hungarian people as well. We were able to finish visiting the main palace in 1 hour and skipped walking through the gardens due to time... More

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
