Tour Overview

Begin with the Holy Trinity Statue and walk around the majestic Matthias Church from there. Enjoy the Fishermen's Bastion, a beautiful fairy-tale building with spectacular views of the Danube and the Hungarian Parliament.

Visit the President's and Royal Palace complexes, wander around the courtyards and fountains, and admire the dignified guards stationed outside the palace.

Return from the Royal Palace and explore the castle's other side. The Buda Hills, the western section of the city with its forests and nature areas, can be seen clearly from the ancient walls.

After the guided walking tour, relax for a few minutes in the Hospital in the Rock Museum's entry lobby. Your tour guide will provide you with a skip-the-line ticket and will assist you in joining your scheduled museum visit. This is going to be the most thrilling portion of your trip. Visit the Hospital in the Rock for a one-hour guided tour. This location was once a secret military hospital tucked away beneath Buda Castle. The hospital is a part of a roughly six-mile-long network of natural caves and tunnels. The museum, which is housed in the hospital's ancient rooms, was constructed to preserve the hospital's rich history. Hundreds of lifelike wax figurines are on display in various chambers, telling the narrative of the underground hospital that was later converted into an atomic bunker during World War 2.

Follow your guide through the tunnels of this site to gain a sense of what life was like during these times, especially for injured soldiers.
