The site of the famous defeat of 1552, known as the Siege of Eger, Eger Castle currently serves as a museum and provides a great view of the city from its hilltop location.

The castle was later captured by the Turks, who proceeded to rule it for almost a century. Take a guided tour of the castle to learn more about its role in the country's history.

  • Visiting the castle is worth the price of the ticket. There was lots of renovations going on at the time of our visit, so parts of the area were closed and the surroundings were a bit chaotic. At the ticket office was a helpful person working, for the rest personnel didn't speak other language besides Hungarian or they were not interested in serving clients.
  • After arriving from Budapest at noon, and a nice lunch, the first thing was to visit Eger Castle. One can spend the entire afternoon there. It was most enjoyable, informative as well as a walk back in time. Worth a visit and to spend about 4 hours.
