The Castle of Diósgyőr is a medieval castle in the historical town of Diósgyőr which is now part of the Northern Hungarian city Miskolc.

The first Castle of Diósgyőr was built probably in the 12th century and was destroyed during the Mongol invasion (1241–42). The current, Gothic castle was built after the invasion and reached the peak of its importance during the reign of King Louis the Great (1342-1382). Later it became a wedding gift for the queens of Hungary, which it remained until the Ottoman invasion of Hungary in the 16th century. By the end of the 17th century it was already in ruins. Archaeological excavations were made from the 1960s. In 2014 the castle was restored, the rooms are furnished with Mediaeval-style furniture.

  • I absolutely loved this castle and the fairy garden around it. We went for a horse racing too just next to the castle. I especially liked the hungarian folk dancers show here.

  • Fine, not impressed so much, saw it betters but respect for history. Whole organisation from tickets till guides are really not adapted to foreigners, you will get voice guide only if you ask for it, will not be offered, on entrance they will ask for ticket that you have to buy somewhere in house behind ( no signs of marks on English ), you have to go from one desk to the another until you find where it is, they are not speaking English so to buy or ask for something you need google translate otherwise you will not get for what you come. Voice guide is boring and talking about history but more about some relevant things. I recommend to take a coffee (Capuchino) on the terace of castle, it's one of the best I tasted, girls who made it are bright side of castle and the view from castle if you take a table near the walls.
  • The catle with its expositions are in very good conditions offering a lot of facts and subjects well organized in rooms which are every of them focusing on some specific part of activity. Nice peace of history. Very professional staff. Highly recommend.
