Buda Castle Free Tour

Visit one of Budapest's most iconic attractions on this free tour of the Buda Castle

ABOUT THE Buda Castle Free Tour

This tour is offered by our partner Go Zeppelin Tours Budapest

 

Explore the emblematic Buda Castle during approximately 2h15min and learn about Budapest’s mediaeval origins. Your local guide will take you on a journey through time from Aquincum, the first city created by the Roman Empire, to the Battle of Budapest near the end of World War II. During this free tour you’ll see some of the monuments that have become a symbol of the city, including the Royal Palace, Matthias Church and the iconic Fisherman's Bastion - possibly Budapest’s most photographed viewpoint.

 

The Buda Castle Free Tour starts at Batthyány Square, next to the metro station exit, and finishes at the Fisherman's Bastion (the Halászbástya).

 

A fairy tale story

Visiting the Buda Castle is like travelling back in time. With the guides of Go Zeppelin Tours you’ll explore this UNESCO-listed gem in depth. You’ll learn about Matthias Corvinus, one of the great kings of the Renaissance in Europe, and how the castle walls became one of the last Nazi trenches during the Battle of Budapest.

Your expert guide will take you on a journey filled with myths and legends, where sometimes reality and fiction become one. You’ll hear the true story of Count Dracula, the most famous vampire in history, who was once imprisoned in the Buda Castle Labyrinth, and you’ll learn about Princess Margaret and her peculiar way of fighting against foreign invasions.

Undoubtedly, the Buda Castle Free Tour is a must when in Budapest. Join your local guide on this incredible journey through history where kings, vampires and mythological creatures come together to learn about the oldest and most magical history of Budapest.
