Royal Palace of Godollo is very close to Budapest, it is about a 25-minute ride by car. The garden is such a lovely huge area to go for a short walk and enjoy Mother Nature. The palace is also a nice place to visit.

We visited in August and took a train from Budapest to Gödollö. The palace was absolutely lovely and they've done a good job with the reconstruction and conservation. I loved the pale pink exterior colour. Note that, sadly, you can’t take photos inside. Entrance fee 2600 HUF pp. The restoration work began as late as 1985 - the last Soviets left in 1991 and the palace had apparently been uncared for for decades. They have compiled some interesting information about the progress of the work. And of course there was lots of interesting stuff for all Sisi fans. The well renovated rooms had lots of pictures, portraits and all kinds of items. Sisi loved Hungary and this small country palace, her safe haven, was a coronation gift to Franz Josef and her. I think this place is a special treat if you’re a Sisi enthusiast but don’t expect the glamour of Schönbrunn Palace. ;) We had coffee and cake in the cafe of the palace and although the cafe was nice and the staff super friendly I must say the cakes weren’t anything to write home about. There is a park as well but because the weather was so very hot we only did a short stroll there. I hope to return one day and do a full excursion around the gardens!

There is nothing else except this Palace in Godollo, so unless you are having too much time in Budapest or you are a big fan of Sisi. Otherwise I would not suggest you to go all the way up there. The royal palace is not exactly how Sisi lived. It was transformed to different purpose before it has been renovated back to how it looks right now. Audio guide is available and you will need to leave your identity document as a guarantee (not necessarily a passport ID, it can be your driving license or staff card). The exhibition is quite okay, with lots of description about the royal family and their daily life.

Built in the 1760s by a Count. When the male line ceased it became a summer residence for royalty. During Soviet times it became a barracks. The rooms open to the public look elegant. Some of the items on display are original and others reproduction. Very worthwhile visit.
