Description

Admire the grand treasures of the grand Godollo Palace, the second largest baroque palace in the world, and visit an equestrian farm where you can sample some Hungarian delicacies. Then embark on a carriage ride and observe a traditional horse parade.

Leave central Budapest and head 30 minutes northeast for the Godollo Palace. Visit the majestic landmark, a former summer residence of Franz Josef, Emperor of Austria, and Queen Elizabeth of Hungary. Enter the 23 state rooms on the first floor, which accommodate the interior exhibition. Absorb the royal atmosphere, which recalls the period of the Grassalkovich family, and see the elegant designs of the Grand Hall and painted foyer. Continue to the gardens and explore the immaculate lawns and courtyards.

After your palace tour, your guide takes you to a traditional farm where you can try pogácsa, a Hungarian savory scone, and the national welcome drink, pálinka. After enjoying these authentic treats, sit back for a classic carriage ride, followed by a traditional horse show. Witness the rider control up to 5 gleaming horses and canter around the open-air arena; applaud as he rises to stand majestically on their bare backs.

Très beau château, bien rénové pour correspondre à l'histoire de Sissi l'impératrice. Maid interdiction de prendre des photos, ce qui est vraiment très dommage.

We had an excellent guide. Small group and hotel pickup made this an exceptional tour. The horse farm is beautiful and the show they have is excellent.

The castle wasn’t what I expected but given the fact that it had been destroyed, it was beautiful! Also our guide Attila had a great sense of humor and just a nice guy! The horse show was a great example of Hungarian history. The carriage ride was comfortable.
