What to expect

Start at the Holy Trinity Statue, from where you walk around the magnificent Matthias Church. Admire the Fishermen's Bastion, a fantastic fairy tale structure offering the best views over the Danube and the Hungarian Parliament building.

Head to the President's Palace and the Royal Palace complexes, walk around the courtyards and fountains, and look at the proud guards outside the palace.

Walk back al Palace, and explore the other side of the castle. From the medieval walls, you have an excellent view towards the Buda Hills, the western part of the city with its forests and nature parks.

After the guided walking tour enjoy a few minutes break in the entrance hall of the Hospital in the Rock Museum. Receive a skip-the-line ticket from your tour guide who will help you to join your scheduled visit to the museum. This will be the most exciting part of your tour. Have a 1-hour guided tour in the Hospital in the Rock. The museum is part of a system of natural caves and tunnels that stretches over nearly six miles hidden deep down below the Buda Castle. This place used to be a secret military hospital during World War 2, then it was turned into an atomic bunker during the Cold War period. The museum was established to preserve history. See many rooms exhibiting hundreds of lifelike wax figures showing you the story of the underground hospital.

Follow your guide through the tunnels and get a feeling of what life during these times, especially as a wounded soldier must have looked like.
