What to expect?

Embark on a 3-hour private tour of Castle Hill, the oldest part of Budapest.  In the company of a historian, explore Buda’s Castle and the surrounding district of narrow and cobbled streets full of baroque and gothic facades of historic villas and churches as well as the remains of a synagogue from the middle ages.

Two buildings stand out on Castle Hill, the oldest part of Budapest, known for its narrow and cobbled streets and its baroque and gothic facades: the massive and imposing palace on the southern tip of the hill and the colored roof of Matthias Church in the middle, with its rank steeple pointing towards the heavens.

 

We start our tour at the palace, the ancient seat of royal power and continue walking past the Presidential Palace and the National Dance Theatre, we enter the Castle Hill residential district. The modern wars suffered by Hungary did not pass unnoticed here. 

 

A highlight of the tour is Matthias Church with its abundantly decorated roof and amazing interior. It is, in fact, a very finely executed neo­gothic reconstruction fantasy from the end of the 19th as is the romantic Fisherman’s Bastion at its feet. Nevertheless, it is a strikingly beautiful building. 

 

Along the way, you’ll also pass numerous town palaces and visit one of them, the house of an 18th century pharmacist’s family as well we will drop by the hidden garden of an interesting gallery. Our tour ends at the Vienna Gate, from where you can see all the way to Obuda (Old Buda), where the Romans founded the city then called Aquincum.
