    Visit the second largest Baroque Palace of the world in Gödöllő, only 30 minutes from Budapest. You'll be picked up from your hotel and whisked away to the favorite residence of Elisabeth Sisi and Francis Joseph, 19th century King and Queen of Hungary. Enjoy wandering through the opulent interiors as your guide tells of the secrets of the private life, the hidden doors, bedrooms, and lovers of the royal couple. Tour the huge leafy gardens of the Habsburg Chateau, as you imagine times under the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Next, relax and check out the scenery on a drive through the countryside to a traditional Hungarian farm. You will be welcomed with a Hungarian delicacy pogácsa, the special savory scone and with a shot of the national welcome drink, pálinka. Meet the horsemen and experience the landscape at a gentler pace onboard a magical Carriage Ride. Finally, watch ...

    A wonderful trip, both the Palace and the Horse show were amazing. Our guide Attila was very knowledgeable and a great guy to spend the morning with!

  • Budapest: Gödöllő Royal Castle & Pest City Park Private Tour

    2. Budapest: Gödöllő Royal Castle & Pest City Park Private Tour

    Head out on the path of Queen Sissy, and stop at Godollo Royal Summer Castle for a private guided tour of the interior.  This was the favorite countryside castle of royal family, nobles and aristocrats. Walk along the renovated castle with historic and original furnitures, and learn about the splendor of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. The palace became the symbol of independent Hungarian statehood, and, as a residential center it had a political significance of it own. It was Empress Elisabeth (1837-1898) who specially loved staying here, and the Hungarian personnel and neighborhood of the Palace always warmly welcomed her. Following her tragic death, a memorial park adjoining the upper garden was built. Visit the newly opened section and exhibition of the castle, the nice castle park and the surroundings. On the way back stop at Budapest City Park and walk the courtyards of Vajdahun...

What people are saying about Gödöllő

Great experience. Royal palace and horse show both very good.

The Royal Palace was very interesting, enhanced by the good explanations from our guide. The entire visit to the horse facility very enjoyable from the welcome refreshments, carriage ride through to the excellent show showing the use of horses through the ages to the stable visit. This tour also gave us the chance to see a little more of Hungary than the city of Budapest. We recommend this tour to any others visiting the area if they have any interest in these topics.

WORTH THE EXPENSE AND THE EFFORT

We were picked up from the hotel on time by the organisers and taken to the meeting point. The trip to Godollo was a pleasant experience, as well the visit itself to the Palace. Explanation by our Guide was fine. The visit to the Horse Farm was also something worth experiencing as was the show. All in all the event was worth the expense and the effort.

Very well organized! Great car, responsible driver, very nice and well informed guide. Individual questions were answered and walked through the castle at our pace. Coffee and cake were delicious.

Two wonderful experiences in one morning!

Value for money. Tour guide very educated and enthusiastic. Tour of baroque Palace was thorough. Horse show was exciting and unmissable. Will do it again next year.
