This used to be a museum but not anymore. Now it's a coffee place where they also serve sweets and other associated drinks and have a number of marzipan figures. It's nice inside but pretty small. The terrace is better because it's has a nice view. The caffe was also good

Astounding what artists can do with sugar, almond paste and chocolate as media. Cool replicas of Hungarian landmarks, handicrafts and portraiture. And all the kinds of marzipan candy for sale that you could ever dream of. Kitschy fun.

Go here to take a break with ☕️ and 🍬 marzipan after taking photos of Fisherman's Bastion. Not a museum, but a cafe that also happens to have display cases of marzipan on sale.

We decided to drop in at the museum as the waitor at the cafe adjacet to the museum was so nice and made her efforts for us to stay comfortable. The admission is 400 HUF/person, so it was small but enjoyable. You can see not just buildings but some characters from famous cartoons. It was fun to take pictures. The... More

Have heard about this place and decided to visit while exploring Castle Hill. Located on the ground floor of Hilton Hotel right behind the Fisherman’s Bastion. At first you enter into the marzipan shop and small café. If not a sign “museum”, you would never think there is another room and something else to see. The “museum” is very small... More

This is a museum, cafe, restroom, and sweet shop all-in-one. Looking for a clean restroom - use the one here with paid admission. Found this to be the best place to purchase marzipan in all shapes and flavors.

The artistry is the marzipan creations is excellent and offers a unique look into this Hungarian craft. The best part for me was the gift shop - where you can purchase marzipan creations and candies. My favorite was the coffee one. Perfect pick me up after a long day of touring sights and walking.

Staying in District I / Buda

Neighbourhood Profile
District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
