From Budapest: Baroque Palace and Horse Show Tour

1. From Budapest: Baroque Palace and Horse Show Tour

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 traditional Lipizzaner Horse show before you return to downtown Budapest.

An interesting tour.

it was an interesting tour, but the destination is maybe not that spectacular as compared to other things in Hungary. The horse show was also pleasant, but maybe not that spectacular. A fine tour, but not spectacular.

Beautiful palace, and kind staff.

We enjoyed the loan of a wheelchair that allowed our elderly parent to visit too. I had to help the person controlling the tickets to scan my ticket-mobil, but it was with a smile and good will.

The collection looked very nice and was clearly exhibited. Only outside the castle there were many buildings that had fallen and were due for a restoration. That was very unfortunate.

Easy access from Budapest to Godollo (Metro + train). Too bad the stables and the theater are closed. Very nice site, only downside prohibited photos in the palace.

Beautiful.

Beautiful castle. Lots of information about Sisi. Well settled. Top.
