Royal Palace of Godollo, 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.

Royal Palace of Godollo Reviews
Любимая резиденция императрицы Елизаветы находится в 40 км от Будапешта. Дворец достаточно скромный по сравнению с австрийскими резиденциями. Достаточно скромные коллекции живописи и мебели. Воспользу... more »The favourite residence of Empress Elizabeth is 40 km from Budapest. The palace is quite modest compared to the Austrian residences. Quite modest collection of paintings and furniture. Use the audio guide. Parking is paid (1.5 hours you will be enough). There is a café with very tasty cakes. We recommend to fans of history and fans of great Sisi.
trés beau château bien restauré nous avons eut droit à une visite en français documentée à tous points de vue l'endroit est bien meublé more »very nice Castle well restored we were entitled to a visit in French documented from every point of view the place is well furnished
I just saw the permanent exhibit and wasn't impressed. Pretty standard fare if you've been in an old house / museum before. The Palace did not feel like a royal palace inside. Still probably worth seeing for the $5 admission.
Simply gorgeous! Visit everything they have on offer, not just the regular tour. Go and see the baroque theater, the old riding-halls turned into a gorgeous theater+ball room, the old stables and the gorgeous gardens!
