Buda Castle Free Tour

  • 254 reviews | 2,899 travellers
    Very good for learning more about the city and its history. The only improvement that could be made would be to meet at the first point/stop and not at the bottom next to the metro entrance; This gives you downtime and precious wasted time, especially if you are in Budapest for only a few days. Museums close early. The visit could start earlier in order to be able to continue with the possible attractions to do (for people with the Budapest Card for example)

We'll enter the castle grounds through the Vienna Gate, the oldest entrance to the fortress. Do you know how it got its name? From there, we'll pass in front of the National Archives and the Church of Mary Magdalene, two of the most striking buildings in the Buda Castle Quarter.

Our tour will continue as admire the façade of the Archbishop's Palace before strolling along Uri Street, whose medieval architecture is sure to enchant you. We'll then reach Holy Trinity Square, to find the Matthias Church, where the last Habsburg king was crowned.

Afterwards, we'll make our way to the Fisherman's Bastion to enjoy a unique view of Budapest Parliament, the Danube River and the bridges that cross it. Get your camera ready, this is the most iconic spot in the Castle Quarter.

Our final stop will be in St George's Square at the Matthias Fountain, where we'll hear all about the legend of the figures it depicts. The tour will come to an end here at 6 pm.
