Delve into the fascinating life story of the Duchess Elisabeth Amalie Eugenie, better known as Sissi and spouse of Franz Josef I, Emperor of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, at Royal Palace of Godollo. The Baroque castle, Sissi's summer residence, was originally built in 1735, and has had a colorful history. It was looted during World War II, used as a Soviet bunker during the period of occupation, and later repurposed into a home for the elderly. Notice the careful restoration that has occurred recently to restore it to its former glory. Walk through the 26 rooms open to the public and the 31 galleries displaying personal belongings, as well as the Royal Suites, the Ceremonial Hall, and the gardens. For an extra fee, you can visit the theater, the stables, and an exhibit about horsemanship in Hungary.

  • Beautiful place. It’s well preserved. I really liked it. Xmas tree amazing plus there are some other random rooms to visit. Highly recommend. The garden is very and there’s not much to see really but very green area
  • So so beautiful. Only had one day to be there in Gödöllő but it was more than enough to check out this wonderful castle. I got a student ticket and a your with two other people. During this your, we got to explore the whole castle, except the places that were getting renovated, at a steady place, allowing us to ask questions, learn cool new facts and take some amazing pictures. The history of it all is something I absolutely love as Sissi is such an amazing figure and to us Hungarians, she was one of the most amazing queens. If you're a fan of history or maybe just want to check castles out, it is absolutely worth a visit.
