Sisi - Empress of Austria and Queen of Hungary

Overview

Gödöllő, a small town situated close to Budapest, gives home to the largest and one of the most spectacular Baroque palaces of Hungary. The palace’s story began in the early 18th century, and had its second golden era from 1867 onwards, when it became the summer residence of the Habsburg royal couple, Queen Elizabeth (Sissi) and his husband, Emperor Francis Joseph. The family received the palace from the Hungarian state as a gift to their coronation. From the 20th century the palace went through darker and harder times as well, during the World War II. followed by the communist regime in Hungary. But thanks to its renovation, the palace regained its former beauty and now sparks again as it did in the past centuries.

What we offer

.

The capital of Hungary is truly like a treasure chest. A chest of which if you open the lid, you’ll find plenty of beautiful things. You’ll find buildings with stunning architecture, ranging from Roman through Baroque to Art Nouveau; you’ll find spots offering breath-taking panorama; you’ll find signs of another era through the Turkish-style bath-houses, and you’ll find a tangible past through the bullet-holes on buildings witnessing dark and hard times. Budapest is a paradise for explorers; let us help you to experience it in the best way possible!

You are visiting Budapest and would like to visit something also outside of the capital, but don’t really know where to go, what to do and how to get there? We organise trips to places situated just outside of Budapest, reachable within half-an-hour. These are half-day programs, ideal for taking a break from the capital’s busy flow, and experience a bit different reality as well. Browse our programs, and whether you opt for the Baroque castle tour or for another program, we’ll do our best to make it an unforgettable experience.

Budapest occupies less than 1% of Hungary’s territory; meaning that if you don’t leave the capital, you’re experiencing just a tiny part of the country. If you wish to discover the secret world outside the capital’s border, choose our day-trips, and we’ll take you to places and make you live adventures, you’d never come across without the help of a local. Come and immerse yourself in the beauty of the Hungarian countryside, accompanied by a glass of wine!
