Overview
Explore the summer residence of the Grassalkovich family on a 5-hour tour to Gödöllő Castle from Budapest. Learn about Franz Josef, King of Hungary, and his wife Elisabeth ("Sisi"). Then, watch an equestrian show in Lázár Equestrian Park.
What to Expect
Discover the secrets of the former Palace of Queen Elisabeth of Hungary, and enjoy a horse show in the famous Lázár Equestrian Park on a half-day tour from Budapest. See the “Puszta Five” horse display of Queen Elisabeth in costume!

Transfer to the town of Gödöllő in Pest County by air-conditioned vehicle. Go to the former summer residence of Queen Elisabeth (fondly known as “Sisi’) and watch a traditional horse show in the horse-ranch of the Lázár brothers, world champions in horse carriage racing.

Enjoy the peace and quiet of a little town less than an hour from the Hungarian capital. Hear the legend of Queen Elisabeth of the Hungarians, and how her charm prevailed for 150 years. Learn about the 4th World Scout Jamboree, held in Gödöllő in 1933, notable as the first international gathering where Air Scouts were represented, including the Hungarian pilots László Almásy and Austrian Robert Kronfeld.

Admire the spectacular Baroque interior of the castle as your guide tells you more about the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the life of “Sisi.”

Continue to Lázár Equestrian Park, where you will be welcomed with fresh scones topped with crackling, along with a fruit brandy or mineral water. Take your place for the horse show, and see a program that includes a display of nomad warrior archery (archery on horseback), spear throwing, jumping through fire, and the legendary “Puszta Five,” a horse display of Queen Elizabeth sitting side-saddle and in costume.

You will then be invited to mount the horses, or take a scenic coach tour through the woods. Explore the stables and farmyard at Lázár Equestrian Park, before the transfer back to Budapest.
