Overview

Choose between a morning or afternoon tour, which will convene at the Hotel Baltazár at either 10:00 am or 2:00 pm. The private tour will then begin at Buda Castle, a seat of royal power dating back to the 13th century.

Next, walk past the Presidential Palace and the National Dance Theatre as you enter the Castle Hill residential district. This part of town was completely destroyed at least twice; once when Hapsburg ­led troops retook it from the Turks in 1686 and again when the Russians crushed the troops of Nazi ­Germany in 1945. It was then rebuilt in the 1950s and 60s.

Some highlights of the tour include Matthias Church, with its ornate roof and intricate interiors, the remnants of a synagogue from the Middle Ages, a hidden garden, and a monument for the last Turkish pasha who ruled Buda.

The tour also includes the house of an 18th century pharmacist’s family, where you will see the extensive damage caused by the siege of Buda in 1945, when German troops and their allies were hiding out in the cellars and caves under Castle Hill. The tour ends with the sweeping view of Obuda (Old Buda) from Vienna Gate at either 1:00 pm or 5:00 pm.
