The inside of the castle is nothing but a bunch of dead animals and skulls. Do NOT pay to go inside. The inside is dirty and antiquated. The exterior grounds and park are nice as is the street food. The inside is very depressing.

I visited the place twice (once in daytime and then late at night) because of its photographic interest. The place is just amazing and a top attraction of Budapest. Do not miss it.

We visited the Vajdahunyad castle a couple of days ago whilst walking around the park and visiting Szechenyi baths and it felt like we were taken back in time to the medieval ages. Walking through the gate into the courtyard with the church and statues...More

Being October when we visited, the colours of the tree leaves and ivy surrounding and on the castle were a wonderful mix of red, brown and orange (some still green) creating a beautiful vision from the entrance gate. We didn't go to the Agricultural museum...More

Step back in time in history when Hungary was great, this is replica of what is now Romania, birthplace of one of the greatest Hungarian persons. Walk to to the back side to see lots of statues, even Bela Lugosi is there

Stunning castle and grounds. As per most of the popular buildings the grounds are flawlessly clean. It's ideal for a slow stroll, there's a small church located in the grounds to visit too

Walked around the castle and enjoyed the surrounding area, an especially beautiful setting in October with the fall colours. The Castle was busy with large groups. Tip: It is not possible to walk completely around the castle. Great photo opportunities.

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.

It must be possible... Gates are open. No guards. No tickets. No security. The tour is all free. People walking around freely. And wedding photos must be free/possible too (I assume, I guess).

You can book the tower tours as you enter the museum (although I would not bother with the gate tower as there is really not much to see). We just went and paid for what we wanted on the day and there was no problem with... More

We didn't have to pay. We just walked around the outside.
