“Medieval life situations - an interesting experience!”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Dear, ruined castle. Here you can get to know a close the life of king Louis and the inhabitants of the castle - purchasing, hunting, superstition... In the chambers (for example fireplace room, prison) of the panopticon can you see various medieval life situations. An interesting experience!

“Under construction”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

A real knight castle, but under construction, so not able to get it.
View is magnificent and as it is in the almost downtown of Miskolc, there are a lot to see around the castle as well.

“Diosgyyor castle”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We stopped by for a few minutes to view the ruins of this castle. very impresive, and wished we had more time to tour. Ruins plus the adjacent restored village very representative of early hunhary communities

“Renaissance Cavalcade - excellent event”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

Been in Diosgyor Castle at the end of may,2012 and by chance we found ourselves in the middle of medieval festival. Ticket around 4 euro, but worth every penny even if we were there 3-4 hours. Excellent event, pity we didn't understood Hungarian as a moderator was explaining all the time. Traditional craftsmen - wood, metal, linen, leather -, traditional cuisine in decent tents and very affordable, medieval parade with king and queen's court all actors dressed in medieval outfits, games with knight swords fights, archers contest - excellent mongol inspired outfits, medieval music&dance, horse stunts, hunting with eagle and owl, games for kids aso.
The most I've liked the blacksmith: he presented medieval armors, swords, spires, crests/helmets etc and actually you could try everything, in fact i have tried a metal link dress and a helmet and that were HEAVY!!!, could hardly move rather fight in them.

The tower's roof panorama worth all the stairs up and down, and the narrow stairway.
Fully recommend to spend your time!
