Create an itinerary including Buda Castle
At World Heritage Site Buda Castle, you'll encounter medieval architecture, lush gardens, and centuries of royal Hungarian and Austro-Hungarian history. Though Nazis stole the palace's luxurious room exhibits in the 1940s, the building is still home to the Hungarian National Gallery, which holds significant collections of Hungarian art. It is also the site of the Budapest History Museum and National Szechenyi Library. This 13th-century structure has been renovated and modernized after it was nearly destroyed in World War II. Explore the surrounding neighborhood, known as the Castle District, which is celebrated for its historic houses, churches, and public buildings.

  • Beautiful from the outside. Unfortunately we didn't know it is shut on Mondays, so never got to go inside.

  • Really nice place with an art gallery. This is a really nice place to rest a bit before you continue to Bastion or the city center. If you are looking for a place to park nearby, just look at four streets to the east and you will find big parking with lots of free spots. However, you will need to walk for about 15-20 minutes. It is worthy. Trust me.
  • I haven’t been inside so far, but the outside is outstanding. It’s been having renovations for a while, so there is always some part that you can’t get to see due this, but the rest is really nice. Good views of the city and the parliament
