An amazing place, where you are moved back to medioevo. A fortification plenty of history, that allows you to think about hungarian best efforts to defend their nation from invasors. At least 2 museums inside with very good technology for showing you all the details about the battles, fights and castle's history. Absolutely a "must" in Eger.

It has museums inside and a lot of good programs. Under 6 free to go. After opening times you can go in just to walk around for 800 HUF.

This is a mounting castle over looking Eger. The fee is 1600HUF each. A nice castle but for the money you're not really getting anything for it except walk along the grounds and the walls of the castle. The wax museum was a little freaky, although did come here in the winter and only 6 people around so didn't go... More

I the beginning we thought it will be just a walk over the walls of the castle. Then, at the ticket booth we were told that the price includes a number of guided tours and entrance to the current exhibitions (2nd world war -aero). Both us and the kids enjoyed the journey for different reasons. Tour guide speaks in Hungarian... More

Within the castle you could visit several different museums, like the history of the castle and the wax museum or the system of cellars and each of them are interesting. But if you rather stay outside or are just looking for a stroll and want to take pictures of the city from above it is great to walk along the... More
