Expert review of Budapest History Museum

The magnificent Knights’ Hall and other remains of royal palaces of the past.

It’s fascinating to explore the medieval passages and halls that sit beneath the southern portion of today’s Buda Castle Palace. The palace has undergone countless facelifts over the course of its history – often because of destruction during the country’s many conflicts – and these sections are all that remain of the Gothic court of King Zsigmond of Luxembourg and the splendid Renaissance pile where King Matthias reigned. Highlights include the restored Knights’ Hall – containing medieval statues that were unearthed in 1974 – and part of the Royal Chapel. On the floors above is an exhibition charting the city’s history from prehistory to modern times.

Price advice: 

Entrance 1,300 forints (adult), 650 forints (concessions).
