Visegrad Citadel, Visegrad

Enjoy some of the best views of the scenic Borzsony Hills and the winding Danube from atop Visegrad Citadel. The fortress served as the storehouse for the Hungarian crown jewels from the time of its completion in 1249 until 1440. Climb the stairs within and notice the solid rock walls and surrounding moats. Check out the displays on falconry and traditional regional occupations near the east gate. If you choose to walk, chose from two paths: one that begins near Solomon’s Tower and leads you through the woods, and another, less-steep route leaving from the town center. Both paths are fairly demanding, so consider taking the city bus up for an easier trip. Use our Visegrad trip planner to add Visegrad Citadel and other attractions to your Visegrad vacation plans.

  • Beautiful views Historical castle very interesting great place to visit.lots of interesting facts to see and read great for children to explore  more »
  • Better to go by car. Parking 300 Huf/hour entrance ticket 1700 Huf. Of course, ideal, if not enough people and you can safely get all the most. The kids are very interested. Visual expositions. Beautiful views. I love this place. Recommend

  • It is a nice castle with a little bit of history. It would be nicer if it was better organized and easier for us to understand the museum. The view is beautiful. This is where the Danube makes its turn to go south and then go towards Budapest. There are also plenty of restaurants down the hill where you can have lunch after you’ve seen the museum. If you’re a hiker you can also hike or even bike around there. Make sure you go to the bobsled not far from the castle.
  • The view from the castle is beautiful. You can skip the wax works - two rooms with wax dolls having a feast and dancing. Nothing special
