  1. What sort of identification do you need for your senior discounts, will a photo copy of your passport be sufficient. Myself and wife will be in Budapest in April 2020 and would appreciate any information you could give. I am 71 and my wife is 68 years of age.
    Kind regards,

    • Dear John,
      Thank you for contacting us regarding senior discounts in the Buda Castle Budapest.
      Yes, showing a photo copy of your passport on entering the museums inside the Castle is sufficient to purchase discounted (or free) tickets. Please just make sure your date of birth and your nationality reads well on the copy.
      For EU citizens over 70 years of age admission is free to both museums. EU citizens between 62-70 years of age enjoy a 50% discount on both entries.

      Hope I could help.

      Have a great Castle visit in Budapest!
