Buda Castle Opening Hours

The courts, courtyards of the Buda Castle are open day and night, 24/7. On special days, when festivals take place on the Buda Castle courts, the courts are fenced off, and you will need to buy a festival entry to be able to get access to the castle and its attractions.

Opening Hours of the Royal Palace

Buda Castle day

As the festivals are some of the best in Budapest, and well worth the entry fee, you will not be disappointed. Oftentimes the festival ticket includes free entrance to the buildings of the Buda Castle.

Currently the Royal Palace (aka the Buda Castle) is the home of the National Gallery and the Budapest History Museum, therefore, the opening hours of the buildings of the Buda Castle is identical with the opening hours of the Gallery and the Museum (as well as the less known Hungarian National Library, which also often features exhibitions).

  • National Gallery opening hours: Tue-Sun 10 am – 6 pm (closed on Mondays, but often open on national holidays)
  • Budapest History Museum opening hours: 1 March – 31 October Tuesday – Sunday 10 am – 6 pm, November 1 – February 29 Tuesday – Sunday 10 am – 4 pm (closed on Mondays, but often open on national holidays)

Opening Hours of the Buda Castle District

Similarly to the Royal Palace, the Buda Castle district itself is open all day and night, at least regarding its streets, courts, and even some of its attractions, like the Fisherman’s Bastion, which is the finest lookout tower (a fairy tale tower complex) in the Buda Castle district. The Buda Castle hilltop, which is called the Buda Castle district makes a nice and romantic Budapest attraction for late night or early dawn walks too.

That being said, most of the castle attractions close at 6 or 8 pm, some of the restaurants and bars stay open until around 11 pm or midnight, and then the castle goes calm and quiet. Indeed, the parties and noisy nightlife of the city of Budapest takes place on the Pest side, while the Buda side, including the Buda Castle district, gets quiet and peaceful.

    Hello,
    I have a very important question, we’re a group of students from Poland (45 persons), we study tourism and we will organize a bus trip of Europe ( this is a students practice). In Budapest we will be 23th June (only one day) unfortunately, it’s Monday. We’d like to visit Budapest History Museum, is it possible? This is the main point of the program. We care so much about this musuem.

    I’m waiting for the reply,
    Kind regards,

    Natalia Młynarczak

    • Hello Natalia, unfortunately Monday is the only day when the museums are closed in the Buda Castle, with the exception of the Spy Museum, which is open from Monday to Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm. The Budapest History Museum is closed on Mondays. We are very sorry that you will be staying one day only, and hope that the students can return to Budapest for a longer time to enjoy the many programs and attractions the Hungarian capital can offer. The Hungarian National Gallery (also in the Buda Castle) is closed on Mondays too. Nevertheless, we suggest contacting the Budapest History Museum directly in this matter for an official reply. You can email them at kapcsolat@mail.btm.hu

      Thank you for visiting Budapest, Hungary! Have a fabulous time!

  11. We would like to visit the Buda Castle Easter Festival 2015 so can you please let me know how to buy tickets for this event? Many thanks.

    • Dear Linda, you can buy the tickets for the 2015 Buda Castle Easter Festival at the Buda Castle. The Buda Castle and its buildings are open during the Easter holidays in 2015. But the admission is special as there is a big Budapest Easter Festival in the courts of the Buda Castle. This means that during the Easter Sunday and Easter Monday (also on Good Friday and Saturday), the museums and galleries are also open. You can visit the Budapest History Museum inside the Buda Castle with the festival ticket (included in the price). The festival tickets are valid for both days (Easter Sunday and Monday).

      Ticket Prices in 2015:
      HUF 2,000 / adult
      HUF 1,000 / child (ages 3-14)
      HUF 5,000 / family (2 adults, and max 4 children)

      The Hungarian National Gallery is also open during the Easter holiday (Friday – Monday) in the usual opening times, from 10 am to 5.45 pm.

  12. Hi Could you please clarify the opening times for the Buda Castle and Fishermans Bastion for me please… I am sorry but I find the above information a bit confusing…

    Also Is it possible for a couple to have photos taken in the Castle and surrounding the castle such as those lovely stairs and the Fishermans Bastion area…

    Could I please also ask, if a couple wanted photos taken when the sun is going down what kind of times would be perfect for these type of photos… i.e. sunset / evening / night appearance.

    Thank You So Much
    Shusma (UK)

    • Dear Shusma, the opening times of the Fisherman’s Bastion are open all times (Monday – Sunday, 0 am – midnight). The Bastion is never closed as it is an open lookout tower and terrace. There are some upper turrets that close for the night, but the lower parts remain open, regardless of times or weather conditions.

      The Buda Castle is open from Tuesday to Sunday, 10 am – 6pm. But you can visit the courtyards outside the opening times as the gates of the courts are not closed.

      Yes, please feel free to take photos of yourselves on the Fisherman’s Bastion stairs or at the Buda Castle. You do not need a photo permit for personal use if you take photos in the open air. However, inside the Buda Castle you need to have a photo permit for the exhibitions.

      The sun sets in Budapest at various times all year round. Please check the sunset times. You can check sunset hours in this list

I understand that the museums are not open on Monday, but do we need to book necessary a tour with specific time and date or you can explore the castle, museum and the area free of charge. Thanks in advance :)

    • Dear Donika,
      you don’t need to book a tour to be able to enter and discover the Buda Castle. Please note that the entry is not free (unless you have a Budapest Card).

  31. can you visit the castle without a guided tour? do you need to book for just walking round the castle? How much at all does this cost?

    • Hello Alexa,
      the Castle courtyards (the open air courts) are not only open for tourists any day of the year (except for festival days), but are also free to enter. If you wish to take a visit inside the buildings of the Buda Castle, however, you will need to buy a ticket to one of the exhibitions featured in the museum / gallery within the buildings of the Castle (ticket prices €6 – €7 for the various exhibitions).

      Budapest Card holders have free entry to almost all buildings in the Buda Castle including the National Gallery and the Budapest History Museum (in the latter you can see some of the old furnishings which remained after WW2). Moreover, you will also get a free Castle District walking tour included in the price of the Budapest Card, which is a 2 hour tour in the Buda Castle district with major sights. Prices for the City Tourism Card (known as the Budapest Card) starting from €17 in 2016. The Card itself offers a range of other discounts, so well worth buying it if you wish to visit the Castle inside and get a tour, plus enjoy further benefits.

      Buda Castle, and the Buda Castle District are open all year round. Museums in Buda Castle have their opening hours though.

      I hope I could be of help.

    Here says that the courtyards are always open. I was just here, and a very rude man, said I can’t be there. All I wanted was to get some pictures.
    Is there a curfew?

    • Hello Maria

      We are very sorry to hear that.

      Buda Castle, and the Buda Castle District are open all year round. Maybe there was some private event?

    • Dear Lara,
      thank you for your inquiry.
      The Castle District is open 24/7, even on holidays. The National Gallery and the Budapest History Museum will be open on Oct 23, and entry will be free of charge to both museums.

  63. I’ve got the same doubts of many people. I need to get the official website only the Royal Palace. I’ve understand that the entrance is free but I would like to book the date and time to go into., so it’s necessary for me to get the official website. There will be queues gents in August.
    Thank you to help me.
    Best regard.
