Gödöllő Excursion
Visit Gödöllő for a Tour of the Incredible Royal Palace


Duration: 4-hours



With a local English-speaking guide and driver, take a drive to Gödöllő, only 18 miles outside of Budapest, to see the Royal Palace. With your guide, you will view the rooms of the palace and the surrounding grounds.


Also known as Grassalkovich Palace after its commissioner, Count Antal Grassalkovich, confidant of Empress Maria Theresa, the Royal Palace was completed in the 1760s. After the formation of the Austro-Hungarian Dual Monarchy in 1867, it was enlarged as a summer retreat for Emperor Franz Joseph and became the favorite residence of his wife, Queen Elizabeth. After serving for 40 years as barracks to the Soviet occupying forces as well as an old people’s home, the renovation of the palace began in 1994 and today several rooms are open to the public including Franz Joseph’s suites, Elizabeth’s (Sisi’s) private apartments, and the impressive Ceremonial Hall.


After visiting the renovated portion of the palace, you may wish to enjoy a piece of cake and a cup of coffee in the Palace Café.
