Royal Palace of Godollo, Godollo

#1 of 6 in Things to do in Godollo
Delve into the fascinating life story of the Duchess Elisabeth Amalie Eugenie, better known as Sissi and spouse of Franz Josef I, Emperor of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, at Royal Palace of Godollo. The Baroque castle, Sissi's summer residence, was originally built in 1735, and has had a colorful history. It was looted during World War II, used as a Soviet bunker during the period of occupation, and later repurposed into a home for the elderly. Notice the careful restoration that has occurred recently to restore it to its former glory. Walk through the 26 rooms open to the public and the 31 galleries displaying personal belongings, as well as the Royal Suites, the Ceremonial Hall, and the gardens. For an extra fee, you can visit the theater, the stables, and an exhibit about horsemanship in Hungary.

  • The renovation so far here is impressive, and it rivals a lot of the Habsburg sites in Vienna at a fraction of the cost. This makes a great half-day trip away from the bustle of Budapest, easily acces...  more »
  • A wonderful palace of a bygone age, being lovingly restored. Well worth a visit.
  • Must see! Explore the garden and enjoy the park. I recommend an audio guide. The castle is just perfectly renovated and not too tiring to explore. After the visit walk across the main road and explore the charming inner city pedestrian zone: have lunch, dinner or a great coffee there!
