Budapest: Guided Tour to the Hospital in the Rock & Castle

1. Budapest: Guided Tour to the Hospital in the Rock & Castle

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 view over the Danube and the Hungarian Parliament building.  Head to the President's Palace and the Royal Palace complexes and walk around the courtyards and fountains, and look at the proud guards outside the palace.  Walk back from the Royal 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 and 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" WW2 underground bunker museum. This place used to be a secret military hospital hidden deep down below the Buda Castle. The hospital is part of a system of natural caves and tunnels, that stretches over nearly six miles. The museum that is located in the old rooms of the hospital was established to preserve its rich history.  See many rooms exhibiting hundreds of lifelike wax figures and showing you the story of the underground hospital, that was then turned into an atomic bunker during World War 2. Follow your guide through the tunnels of this place and get a feeling of what life during these times, especially as a wounded soldier must have looked like.

When it comes to visiting the castle, taking a guide is essential. It's two hours of explanation and lots of interesting things to hear, and our guide was fantastic. A boy of partly Polish origin was able to explain the whole story in the best possible way, or rather everything he could tell us in two hours. As for the hospital in the rock, I recommend going without a guide, as you can focus more on the things on display since there is no need to wait for other people.

Purely inspirational. Better be prepared than to get a nasty surprise. Thank you angels. Makes me wanna build or get built a bomb shelter under my home, too. Thinking about a modern version of course, and maybe (now or later group together - underneath blocks of flats bigger space, etc. strength in unity, you know. Hope and pray for peace.

Dalia gave an excellent tour. We had forgotten about the castle district part of the tour and we had already had a castle district tour but she made an excellent effort to find other things to tell us about that we hadn't already learned. The last hour of the tour of Hospital in the Rock was very interesting.

Dalia Csizmar was brilliant. She had so much knowledge and kept the follow of the tour going. She had great consideration for us and the heat. Lovely woman. Very enjoyable tour. Highly recommend her.

The tour was very informative and interesting, our guide Julia was fantastic. The Hospital in the Rock was a really eye opener and definitely worth a visit.
