  1. Hello. Does the Castle tour include to go inside and see the interiors of the Castle? All the magnificent rooms there?

    • I have a question which tour would be to visit inside the castle and outside as well? Köszönöm szépen.. jövök a lányommal júliusában 2019!! Első vizit Magyarország nekünk.sok család van … égen várjuk már!! And also one more question is this to be paid in forint?őr eurós?

      • Hello Ibolya,

        thank you for your email.

        All of the buildings of the Buda Castle inside need an entry fee. There is no area which is ‘castle only’, all rooms, halls etc. are the home of 3 institutes: the History Museum, the Gallery and the National Library (the latter also has its entrance fee). Please make sure to book a tour between Tuesday and Sunday, as the museums inside the castle are closed on Mondays.

        Please see the available tours on:

        For you and your daughter I would suggest the following tours:



        If you wish to get a guide inside the building of the castle, you can buy an entry for HUF 2,000/ adult, plus an audio guide in Budapest History Museum for HUF 1200 (approx. €4) per person. In total HUF 3,200.
        Or you can visit the building inside the art gallery too:
        In the Hungarian National Gallery, currently you can buy a ticket at the door for HUF 1800/ adult (approx. 6 Euros) for the permanent exhibitions (temporary ones cost extra), and the audio guide is for the exhibition (not the building), it costs HUF 800 (approx. 3 Euros) per person.

        I hope I could be of help.

  2. Hello,
    my group wants to join the Castle District Tour. How or where can I book it?
    Regards, Viola

  3. HI! I’m trying to book the budget buda castle tour, but I think their website is down. I cannot proceed with my booking. Is it possible to just purchase the package tour in the buda castle? Thanks

    • Dear Jan,
      we apologise for the temporary error. The booking form is now working properly. Thank you for your patience.

  4. We would like to incorporate the 2 hour bus tour into the hills and the two hour walking tour of the Buda Castle on Christmas Day. We are a party of 12. Could you please verify this is possible and what is the cost and beginning and ending time. Thank you very much.

  5. Don’t book this tour- it was terrible. Tour guide late, unproffesional, very hard to understand. Tour only went in one straight line and did not visit the Fishermans Bastion or anywhere apart from the church and palace area. Tour guide spent 15 minutes pointing at a map and telling us to visit other places rather than telling us about where we are. We left and explored on our own. I have requested a refund but been ignored so am trying to recover my money through paypal instead.

    • Dear Sam,
      thank you for your valuable feedback. We are terribly sorry to hear that the Budget Tour did not meet your expectations.
      We will inform our Tour partner about your experiences, and get back to you soon. Thank you for your kind patience.

  11. Tour leader was late to meet us, wasted more time taking happy snaps of individuals on the tour in front of a fountain with no water. The guards change on the hour oh missed that by 5 minutes. Perhaps could have seen that if so much time was not wasted. Tour only went for 1 1/2 hours including wasted time. Sound device used by leader was ineffective. Waste of money and time.

    • Hello Usman,

      thank you for your email.

      I am afraid, we can only help you with organizing Buda Castle tours.

      I am sorry I could not be of more help this time.

  22. Hello!
    It is written that visitors can visit the courts. My question is if this includes enetring inside the main buding.

    • Hello Izabel,

      thank you for your email.

      Please kindly note that the buildings of the Buda Castle are currently occupied by museums (the National Gallery and the Budapest History Museum).

      You can only enter the museums with a valid entry ticket.

      I hope I could be of help.

  23. is the Castle handicap assessable?

    • Dear Raymon,
      I’m afraid the public tours are not suitable for wheelchair users, as there are some parts in the Castle District that are not accessible. However, most of the attractions are wheelchair accessible.

  24. Do we need to purchase a ticket if we will only tour the inside of the Castle building itself but not intend to enter the National Gallery and History Museum? if yes how much for adult? thank you

    • Dear Amadeo,
      I’m afraid all of the buildings of the Royal Palace are the home of the museum, the gallery and the National Library (which also has its entrance fee). Basically, inside the wings / buildings of the Castle itself there is no free entry, unless you have purchased a Budapest Card.
      That said, the outdoor courts of the Castle, with the statues, fountains, etc. are free to visit (outside, but within the big metal gates of the Buda Castle building area). I hope it makes sense.
      Also, the area, neighbourhood of the Buda Castle is great to visit, with lots of further attractions and lovely houses, living history.
      Thank you for your understanding.

  25. Hello!

    I have received only a confirmation email without the voucher.

    How can I obtain the voucher?

    thank you!

    • Dear Boryana,
      The confirmation email itself acts as your digital voucher (no voucher is attached to this email). Please print it out and take it with you to the tour, or show it on your mobile phone.
