OK to see it
Jun 2021
Closed for restoration in 2021. Will re-open in 2122.
The village is a must see, the castle is not that unique but worth seeing if you are at Hollókő.

A must to see!
Sep 2020
It is just about 1 kilometre from the village to walk up to the Castle.
Admission fee was HUF 1,200 per adult and it was worth every forint of it!
It was nicely renovated with interesting rooms.
The castle was one of the best I have ever visited in Hungary because it could give you the atmosphere of isolation, what it had been many centuries before. Also the surrounding area was breathtaking, you could see meadows, forests and even hear animals roaming.

There is a big parking place, 4öö HUF/hour, the maximum stay is 3 hours. From there is 6-7 minutes short walk to the fort. The entrance fee is 3500 HUF for a family. The fort is partly renovated, some room also with installations. The view is perfect from the fort. I can recommend tovisit.

A time travel experience
Aug 2019
The village is a UNESCO heritage site. The castle (var) is fantastic.
The parking lot shares the castle and a very nice park and tourist information centre. Make sure to take coins for the parking meter. Then a reasonable walk from the information centre and you are at the foot of the castle. The entrance is very reasonably priced.
There are many objects displayed. Interesting how small the living spaces were. The view is just a dream. Worth visiting

Attractively restored village
Aug 2019
Hollokö village contains a section which has been restored to its old glory, with EU funding. The restored part depicts life as it used to be in the old days. Most houses have either a pottery, or other handcrafts, inside, a couple of restaurants are also present.The village has a very unique charm and is certainly worth a visit when in the vicinity.

Nice castle overlooking the tiny village
Aug 2019
Surprising Castle that overlooks the village. The government tourist office next to the parking lot outside of the town (walkers only) recommends either walking down to the village and then up to the Castle or the other way around. We chose castle first. Great view of the valley and the river. Mostly in ruins but splendid none the less. Walking down into the hamlet is wonderful. You almost feel like Robin Hood in Nottingham Forest. All I needed was a bow and arrows.

A nice little castle with views over the countryside. Combined with the drive to get there and the chance to wander around the historic village,this is well worth the effort

Surprisingly awesome castle
Mar 2019 • Friends
Short hike from the old village of Holloko the castle offers a magnificent view overlooking the hills of Nograd county. Make sure to allocate enough time - roughly 1 hour - for the visit and to enjoy the scenic views.

Close by there are some benches overlooking the castle and place to have a picnic.

Holloko bus station is about 20 minutes walk away.
