Attraction of this day

Godollo 1

Gödöllö

The Baroque castle in Gödöllő, one of the most impressive and important examples of Hungarian architecture, was built in 1735.
Originally, it was built for Count Grassalkovich, a central personality of the 18th century aristocracy in Hungary; later, it served as the summer residence of Franz Joseph and his wife Elisabeth, who actually spent more time here than in Vienna.
During a castle tour, a local guide introduces you to the history of this building, where you can admire various, fully renovated royal suites with original furniture and everyday objects of the royal couple, including the wardrobe and study of Franz Joseph, the salons and dressing room of Maria-Theresia and Queen Elisabeth, memorial exhibitions about Elisabeth and the Grassalkovich family, as well as the Castle Chapel. After your visit to the palace, enjoy a stroll through the park, followed by a coffee break.
