The Castle was build in 1896 as part of the Milennial Exhibition. The castle has different architectural styles. There is the The Museum and Library of Hungarian Agriculture and the Jaki chapel and the whirling. Next to the castle there is a Városliget lake.

If the castle looks like it was pulled from a fairy tale, with its eclectic architecture and lake in front, you aren’t as far from the truth as you might expect. This castle was only built as a decoration for the park — it never...More

A collection of buildings historically significant to be Hungarian people built for the turn of the 20th century. You can walk around the round buildings you can even go in a few. Great for tourists .

Sometimes tourists take in Heroes Square which is a dominant fantastic visit, but just above it is the Varosliget (City Park) a terrific place to visit, and the Vajdahunyad Castle makes for terrific photos. A great visit to the park.

The former private villa is the farming museum now. Close to the Szechenyi pool and bath it lays out in a lush park with old trees and to lakes with fun rowing boats. A green oasis in the city.

The castle is beautiful! We took so many great pictures there. The weather was just hot though and we were quite thirsty. So we decided to buy a lemonade in the corner on the way to the castle. It was unfortunately a tourist trap. He...More

If you intend to visit Heroes Square then take the trouble to walk out the back of the square and on the right you will find Vajdahunyad Castle. The buildings here are copies of various architectures around Hungary and reproduced here. It is in a...More

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
