About the Tour

Come on this dark journey to hear about the bloody and cruel side of Hungarian history and the story of Hungary's most famous family.
Take in the stunning dark and magical atmosphere of Buda's Castle at night on one of the most intimate night walks you'll ever experience.

Away from the hustle and bustle of Pest, this tour takes you to the charming, magical and most intimate places in the city of Budapest, where you will be amazed by the wonderful nightly panorama from top of the hill to the "Pearl of Danube". We'll go back in time, to a dark and hostile period; when Hungarian rulers faced invading armies and reveal the despicable actions of two mad figures.

At Buda castle, the ancient seat of the Hungarian lords, the lantern will guide our way along silent streets and around sinister corners that have for centuries been witnesses to bloodshed and the actions of evil characters. Be prepared to learn about the old Hungary which gave birth to myths that lie between fantasy and chilling truth during one of the darkest periods of the history of Eastern Europe.
