It's closed :( And here's a typical Hungarian not used with tourist info, we were redirected toward another house wine who didn't exist anymore. Hungarian were trying to help, but the lack of written indication play against them sometimes!

We spent half an hour looking for the Royal Wine House at Buda Castle but could not find it. We eventually asked a local who told us it was now a Spy Museum - most dissapointing as we were looking forward to a wine tasting!

District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious
and intricate past, Buda has some of the most
outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable
natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube.
Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a
