Enjoy some of the best views of the scenic Borzsony Hills and the winding Danube from atop Visegrad Citadel. The fortress served as the storehouse for the Hungarian crown jewels from the time of its completion in 1249 until 1440. Climb the stairs within and notice the solid rock walls and surrounding moats. Check out the displays on falconry and traditional regional occupations near the east gate. If you choose to walk, chose from two paths: one that begins near Solomon’s Tower and leads you through the woods, and another, less-steep route leaving from the town center. Both paths are fairly demanding, so consider taking the city bus up for an easier trip. Use our Visegrad trip planner to add Visegrad Citadel and other attractions to your Visegrad vacation plans.

  • Here was the first EU parliament held in Europe🤣🤣🤣🤣 Back in 1335 kings from Hungary, Checz and Poland and many dukes like from Bavaria, Croatia, Teutonic order... gathered here and make arrangements for peace and trade in the area. Most important event of 14th century. The palace fell in decline after Turka defeated them in 16th century. They sure are making effort to restore it. U can see how palace was in three floors, royal chambers, kitchen, gardens. A lot od things are replica, like the fountains, but in the....dungeons there are originals....well what is left od them. In more recent history those three countries remade old friendships and there group in EU is called after this town, Visegrad.
  • I was there during the local knight festival in July--lots of tiny little shops that sold pretty much every thing from knight gears to garden ceramic flowers and beer (loved the red beer). There were medieval exhibitions and performances on every corner of the castle and nearby it.
