“Beautiful at night. ”
Reviewed November 15, 2012 via mobile

This place is amazing and we recommend going in the evening. It is lit up and quiet perfect for a romantic stroll around the vast castle grounds. However during the day you do get to go into the museum. My gf would like to share that it has a squashed penny machine so take 2 x 100 coin and 1 x 5 coin.

Thank Daniel C

“Wonderful views”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

It is well worth taking the cable car up to Buda Castle and Royal Palace area. Stunning views. I recommend you go late afternoon so you can be there for when the daylight goes and the city lights up. It was a wonderful sight and great for photos ... take your tripod!

“History in hand”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

View from the fortress extends to infinity. The stone walls of the fortress to be well preserved with its monumental dominates over the Danube and Budapest. One huge historical monument for which you have to separate the day to be able to visit around. Be sure to engage a local guide

We didn't go inside, but the outside of the Castle was very pretty. My son had a great time shooting arrows outside the Castle on the lawn.
