“will stopover again”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

We stopped here on the way back to Budapest.
We walked the gounds alone but knew some history otherwise it would be just an impressive castle. Its potential as an attraction isnt currently realised.
The views over the town are worth the visit.

“Nice Walk and Views of City”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We walked along the castle walls and took pictures of Eger. The only museum we visited within the castle was the wax museum. It is a small area, but if you have children I would especially recommend it.

“There is much more than wine in Eger!”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

At the Eger Castle you can visit and learn about one of Hungary's National Hero's, Istvan Dobo! The Castle is a remarkable sprawling structure.The are several museums inside the museum, that could consume a full day (or at the very least two hours). If you are interested in Hungarian History the Eger Castle is a must!
