Good place to taste typical Hungarian reds and whites in the unique atmosphere of a medieval wine cellar.

If you love great wine you will love Hungary and this place. Go to the hills and order a nice dry red and sit back and watch the world and the Danube roll by. Enjoy your life more and worry less.

We tasted the wine with a group of 9, we had a great night. Sometimes the explanation about he wines were hard to follow. The ambiance was really nice. It was a small walk down the cellars of the budacastle.

We travelled wide and far to visit only to be told they are closed. No explanation or alternative. Very disappointed as with many other things in Budapest.

Was really looking forward to visiting , but the museum has closed down. The hilton hotel opposite offers a wine tasting experience, I didn't try , for me I was looking for a wine cellar in the historic buda castle not a modern hotel.

We were taken here by our private guide. It was lucky for us that she knew about it for we would never have found it. This place used to be in private ownership and was a commercial enterprise but it has been taken over by the state and seems to be in the process of running down; certainly the staff,... More

This could have been outstanding – with a great selection of wines, a huge cellar, and thorough information on Hungarian wine regions, this should have been great. Unfortunately, the ambiance was poor and our host seemed more interested in talking with his friend over at the bar than answering questions at our table. We asked several questions about where to...

We visited for a tour as my friend and I are both interested in wine. We were told on entry to pay when the tour ended and now I know why- after the tour when we'd had a bit to drink and it's fair to say were a bit tipsy we purchased some wine and after we left discovered we'd... More

With a huge selection of Hungarian wine available for the tasting, a map, some snacks and 2 hours to go as crazy as you wish this was expected to be a recipe for success; and it was! I generally do not rate European wine as the highest quality in the world (what happened France???), and true to form I had... More

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.
