CHECK DATES of when the village closes for the season. We went there on a tour Nov 11. Most of the shops and own were closed. Only one person in folk costume was there long enough to show us the outfit, and was gone shortl thereafter. This could be a wonderfult stop, if it were totally functioning.

Amazing location, historic village, great all day activity. The walk from Hollókő to Rimóc is beautiful (or bike). 5 miles or so each way. Get some ice cream on your return and support the local artists.

Lovely UNESCO world heritage site, this traditional Hungarian "Paloc" village. Locals are very friendly, the building are in good condition, the streets and alleys are clean and tidy. Very nice atmosphere.

I just went to Holloko today. For those who are wondering how they can go there from Budapest, it is easy and very affordable.`

Go to Kossuth Lajos tér then hop on M2 line and get off at Puskás Ferenc Stadion, the bus leaves at 8:30am platform 3 in Budapest and at 3 pm in Holloko. (Trip advisor guests and internet say it leaves Holloko at 2 but it is 3,4 and 6 pm)

Word of advice:
1. Castle was worth it but do not go through the forest. especially if you only Know English. there are no proper signs. It is better to go through the parking. Trip advisor guests said the fee is 600 HUF but it was 900.

2. The wooden stair case is marked by English signs and it is a nice walk

3. The village is only 2 streets and you can walk it in 45 minutes.

4. None of the museums in the village are worth it

5. The coffee and food was good

I got there at 10:30 am and by 12:30 I had seen the castle, walked the village and had food. Waiting to go back to Budapest was boring

Make sure to go with a friend and I will honestly only go if there is a festival happening

It is a beautiful world heritage village with some museums and restaurants. Highly recommend. From the fort there is an easy short path to the village.

Roughly 2,5 hours bus ride away from Budapest, this small village hiding in the bottom of a small valley offers much more than I expected while planing the excursion. Locals were very friendly and ready to chat - as there weren't many visitors that day in Holloko they had all the time to kill. It was still a pleasant surprise.

Hiking trails are well marked and explanation is offered in English as well.

From spring till late fall Holloko definitely worth the time and effort.

This is a delightful little "living museum" with many original buildings, maintained as they have been for over a century. The castle is an easy but uphill walk, well worth the low entrance fee and the hike. Inside are interesting displays about the history and lifestyle of the owners. There is no other entrance fee, but a fee to park your vehicle at the tourist information office.

What's interesting about Holloko, rebuilt in its original style after a 1909 fire, is that it is an intact 18th century village. There are cuter parts of villages of a similar vintage throughout the region, even if none are preserved as an intact ensemble. It has a bit of a contrived theme park atmosphere to it, but castle's stunning views, the Raven legend and the fun playground at the parking lot make for a worthwhile visit with children. As a World Heritage Site, however, it's hardly on par with Hungary's other offerings.

There is nothing of interest to see at all here. A cordoned off street with houses selling bits and pieces.
It takes an hour and a half from Budapest. Time would be much better spent in Eger, which has much more of genuine interest.

The village is so pretty albeit off the beaten track! Many of the residents wear traditional Hungarian costume and the craft shops are amazing! Well worth the drive - beautiful and the hairy bikers filmed here!!!
