Delve into the fascinating life story of the Duchess Elisabeth Amalie Eugenie, better known as Sissi and spouse of Franz Josef I, Emperor of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, at Royal Palace of Godollo. The Baroque castle, Sissi's summer residence, was originally built in 1735, and has had a colorful history. It was looted during World War II, used as a Soviet bunker during the period of occupation, and later repurposed into a home for the elderly. Notice the careful restoration that has occurred recently to restore it to its former glory. Walk through the 26 rooms open to the public and the 31 galleries displaying personal belongings, as well as the Royal Suites, the Ceremonial Hall, and the gardens. For an extra fee, you can visit the theater, the stables, and an exhibit about horsemanship in Hungary.

Royal Palace of Godollo Reviews
We visited in August and took a train from Budapest to Gödollö. The palace was absolutely lovely and they've done a good job with the reconstruction and conservation. I loved the pale pink exterior... more »
There is nothing else except this Palace in Godollo, so unless you are having too much time in Budapest or you are a big fan of Sisi. Otherwise I would not suggest you to go all the way up there... more »
A wonderful palace of a bygone age, being lovingly restored. Well worth a visit.
Must see! Explore the garden and enjoy the park. I recommend an audio guide. The castle is just perfectly renovated and not too tiring to explore. After the visit walk across the main road and explore the charming inner city pedestrian zone: have lunch, dinner or a great coffee there!
