Best Budapest Tour Guides

Gödöllő Palace

“Our visit of Godollo mansion was far better than we had expected. Katalin not only showed us the palace she also gave us the background information to make its history come alive. Her perspective on past events gave us a new way to look at the history of Hungary and its people. We highly recommend her and if your guides are half as good as she is, we would certainly recommend your tour company.” Michelle Handfinger, 2018 April

An Elegant Palace and a Peculiar Queen!

A beautiful residence 40 minutes from Budapest, Gödöllő, with its glittering rooms became a royal palace with the coronation of a Habsburg king.

The visit starts with the huge and beautiful park, then we visit 23 rooms (nearly 1000 sq.m.) which accommodate the interior exhibition. It was the Austrian Queen Elisabeth, Sissi, who especially loved staying in Gödöllő, where the Hungarian personnel and neighborhood of the palace always warmly welcomed her. She was able to converse fluently in Hungarian.

Hungary day trip from Budapest, Sissi in Godollo Palace

Having spent altogether 6 years here, she played a decisive role in Hungarian history, and became an idol for Hungarians. Her personal objects tell stories about private life, hidden doors, and secrets of this unusual personality… Following her tragic death, a memorial park adjoining the upper-garden was built. 

At the 2011 Hungarian EU Presidency, the informal ministerial meetings were held in the Godollo Royal Palace.

Popular tour combination: Gödöllő + Hungarian Horse Show in a day trip.
