Follow your guide through the history and sights of the Buda Castle District on this walking tour in Budapest. Hear stories from Hungarian history as you see sights like the President's Palace, the Royal Palace, and Fishermen's Bastion.
Begin your tour at the Baroque Holy Trinity Statue and walk around the 15th century, Gothic Matthias Church. Admire the fairy-tale like Fishermen's Bastion and take in views of the Danube river and the Parliament building from the Neo-Romanesque terraces.
Stroll along the old cobble-stone streets to get to the President's Palace and the Royal Palace complexes. Walk around the courtyards and fountains, and look at the proud guards outside the palace.
Marvel at stunning views of the other side of the city across the majestic Danube River from the royal terraces. Capture pictures of views of the Margaret Bridge, the Chain Bridge, the Elizabeth Bridge, and the Liberty Bridge.
Visit the other side of the castle and enjoy an excellent view towards the forested Buda Hills from the medieval walls. End your tour near the Holy Trinity Statue where it began.
The tour does not include an inside visit of the church and royal palace museums. Your tour guide will give you all the instructions on purchasing entry tickets to these sights and their opening times. (Matthias church is closing at 5pm and is often periodically closed in the daytime due to weddings. The castle royal palace museums are always closed on Mondays.)
