Hungary Godollo. Grassalkovich Castle.

Royal Castle Gödöllő

Royal Castle Gödöllő

One of the largest baroque castles in Hungary, the castle in Gödöllő, which is in constant renovation, represents an outstanding value of our homeland both as a monument and from a historical point of view. A medium in which the cultural, tourist and protocol functions peacefully coexist - all this spiced with family-friendly services.

Its builder, one of the most respected Hungarian aristocrats the Minister of Chancery, President of the Hungarian Court Chamber of Queen Maria Theresa, Antal Grassalkovich I created a new style of Hungarian castle architecture. In the time of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, the castle served Queen Elisabeth (Sisi) as a popular resort. After World War II, it was a Soviet barracks, then a social home, and this led to the slow decay of the building. In the early 1990-ies, the renovation of the castle's building ensemble was started, and since 1996, visitors from all over the world have been welcomed. The periods of its history are presented by the permanent exhibition in the museum of the castle (the Baroque period, the stay of the royal family in Gödöllő, while the living area of the Gizella wing presents the events connected with the castle entirely up to the present days). The Baroque theater and the pavilion on the King's Hill have also been renovated.

Recently we have been enriched by a whole series of attractions (the palace garden has been renovated, the Erzsébet Veranda has been newly built, the Horthy Bunker can be visited, the Riding Hall and the Baroque Stables have been completed, a 3D demonstration room and our new permanent exhibition, the Royal and Aristocratic Equestrian Culture have been opened). Our wide range of museum educational activities promotes experiential learning.

The Royal Castle of Gödöllő is becoming one of the most attractive, exciting institutions and tourist destinations of Hungary in the present days with its historical tradition and beyond its representative rooms, which have been renovated true to the period and meet even the highest protocol requirements, also due to its colorful offer of cultural programs.

In our museum store and in the store of the court suppliers we are waiting for you with a demanding and rich offer, which is connected with the royal family and with Gödöllő in numerous points of reference!
