    I loved the humour in the style of the buildings and surrounding areas. Very interesting and photogenic. You will want to have plenty of time to go around the buildings, so check the opening times on their website.

    We were taken here as the first stop on our Budapest Tour. Interesting castle, but was unable to go inside as it is closed to the public. There is a museum attached and a lovely park.

    If you take a walk in the City Park near the Heroes Square, you must also step inside the courtyards of this beautiful fairytale castle. It is a shame that they don't offer tours of the inside but there is a museum.

    This isn't a castle at all, merely a reproduction when the millenium celebration was held. Pretty to look at, but if you're looking for a true historical castle, you can avoid this.

    Quite interesting walking round and we enjoyed the changing of the guard. You had to pay to go in the museums and it was hard to find where to buy tickets so we did not bother.

    It was built in the early 20th century, but looks much older. It reminds of a fairy tale castle surrounded by beautiful park. Great place to take a walk or rest in the park. Fantastic location for photoshoot for newlyweds. See if you manage to find the statue of Bela Lugosi.

    If you follow Andrassy street north out of downtown Budapest you'll be led to a big park with this castle at it's center. You can't miss it as it's quite the spectacle, and I feel it even looks a bit like Dracula's castle. Get some nice pictures from the grass outside the moat then venture inside. Once here you can go up one of the towers for nice views, or walk up to the top of the entrance gate. You can also visit a small chapel I believe, all of which have a price of admission, while walking the castle grounds is free. There's a place to eat here as well but seemed over priced to me. Over all a very nice sight and good to take some pictures at, but don't be fooled as it's a fairly new construction when compared with other real medieval castles.

    This is the 2nd castle in Budapest that tourist would need to see. Located in the midst of the garden near the Heroe's Square, the Vajdahunyad castle offers a variety of things for tourists aside from its majestic views. The garden and man-made lake near the castle even adds another dimension to any photo opportunity you would take with this castle. At night, when all its lights are on, it's even more Instagram worthy. A definite must place to visit while in Budapest.

    This was the last thing to visit in Budapest, but i think this was the best thing in it. We arrived there night and the lights and the building where fantastic. No crowd at night. We couldn't enter but i think the outside is as beautiful as the inside.

    Located next to the baths in the park, this castle just looks beautiful right on the edge of the lake. I walked around the park, taking in the smaller buildings and I had coffee at the park cafe. There was a wedding on at the castle which made it extra special. Definitely worth a visit.

    Even if you don't go inside it is worth a trip to admire the architecture and enjoy the park in which it sits. Yes it can feel a bit crowded especially if you come across a part with a guide but don't let this deter you.

    It was well worth the price for the full ticket. You got to climb (or take the elevator) up two towers to see the view as well as to check put the museum. It was a memorable visit with lots of photos taken

    Although the castle is not so old, it is still beautiful in it's on odd way. I understand it is a deliberate mix of all the building style of the other great castles of Hungary. We spend a few hours here in the gardens, the museum and climbing to the top of the tow towers (tickets really cost very little). The location of the castle, behind the Heroes Square and in the park is so pretty and the views from the tower great too. The museum is good if you are interested in hunting, fishing, logging and farming and the current exhibition of horse statues and paintings was of interest to us too.

    The other castle in Budapest, a great visit but its small in the courtyard and with the amount of visitors it can get quite crowded.go for a walk around the castle to get good views and photos opportunities.

    Very nice castle in the center of the city park. Inside the castle - the folk art and agricultural exhibition of Hungary. We could see for free, but normally you should buy a ticket. Worth to see, because it's a copy of the historical buildings of the Great Hungary. The name of the castle Vajdahunyad becomes from the Transylvania castle in Romania.

    The architectural mish mash of buildings in this complex is really charming and it's worth combining a visit here with Varosliget Park, which has lakes, fountains, picnic spots, cafes and the Szechenyi Baths, if that's your thing. Also it's just a few steps from Heroes Square so there's lots to see in an hour or so. The Museum of Fine Arts next door is closed until 2018.

    This castle is located in the middle of Varosliget Park and inside it has a museum which is worth visiting. It comes as a nice surprise in the middle of the Park

    We visit it whenever we go to Hungary. The architecture is an eclectic mix of eras, but the end result is beautiful! The entry to the main courtyard is free, but they have several smaller areas of interest with an entry fee.
