From Budapest: Gödöllő Royal Palace Tour

2. From Budapest: Gödöllő Royal Palace Tour

Just 30 minutes outside of Budapest, set in the lush Hungarian countryside, is the beautiful Royal Palace of Gödöllő, one of the extravagant residences of the former Austrian Emperors. The former residence of the Hapsburg emperors is the second largest Baroque Palace in the world and is one of the largest and most important examples of Hungarian architecture. Elisabeth, Empress of Austria and Queen of Hungary, who was fondly called 'Sissi', and Francis Joseph I lived here in the late 19th century. The royal couple stayed in Gödöllő mainly in autumn and spring, and revived and invested in the agricultural town in which the palace is set. The elegant royal complex is now open to visitors, and this tour will take you inside the restored palace for a glimpse into the lavish lifestyle of the emperors. You'll visit the palace museum and will be guided through the 26–hectare English garden of the palace. As you explore the immense and brilliantly decorated estate, your guide will let you in on the secrets of the private life, lovers, and hidden doors and rooms of the royal couple. You'll have the opportunity for a coffee break on the grounds before heading back to central Budapest.

When arriving by car, have coins ready for the parking lot (440F/h). You will be guided through the castle with an audio guide (1500F, which is not included in the ticket). It's very informative. A must for all Sissi fans. The children can answer riddles at several stations and thus receive a solution word at the end. So it's also great from a pedagogical point of view. There were a few groups of children on the move, but they were very quiet and attentive to their museum educators. An unusual picture for us Germans. Loudly screaming, aggressive and selfish adolescents are more the norm here.

Our guide André has a deep knowledge of Hungary. I learned a lot about the past and present of this beautiful country. His French is impeccable, to the point that I asked him at what age he arrived in Hungary, he replied with a smile that he was born in Hungary. The time spent with him was a great part of our trip to Budapest. He made the visit to this castle very informative. If you are offered their services, say yes.

Beautiful palace, and kind staff.

We enjoyed the loan of a wheelchair that allowed our elderly parent to visit too. I had to help the person controlling the tickets to scan my ticket-mobil, but it was with a smile and good will.

We were able to go directly to the premises with our tickets & didn't have to queue at the cash desk. The QR code on the mobile phone was accepted.

Me ha gustado mucho aunque me faltó ver alguna habitación de la reina Sisi
