How to get here

On foot:

Proceed from Dobó Square - the town centre - along Dobó Street to Dózsa György Square, where you may see bard Sebestyén Tinódi’s statue. From the square you may see the fortress’s Southern gate, which can be accessed by a steep pedestrian road.

Arriving by coach:

The fortress is approx. 20 minutes on foot from the bus station. Proceeding south from the station past the Basilica. The fortress’s Southern gate, the Dózsa György Square entrance, may be approached from two directions. Crossing Széchenyi Street, narrow streets lead to Dobó Square, from where Dobó Street leads directly to the fortress. An alternative is when passing the Lyceum building on the right; Kossuth Lajos Street is reached, which also heads to Dózsa György Square.

Arriving by train:

From the train station, buses 11, 12, and 14 will go two stops to Gárdonyi Géza Theatre. Proceeding along Kossuth Lajos Street will lead to Dózsa György Square. On foot, leave the train station at the back and not through the main hall. A short walk will lead to Érsek Kert (Archbishop’s Garden), a large park, which leads to Kossuth Lajos Street, from where directions have been discussed above.

Arriving by car:

We offer two nearby parking facilities. Proceeding toward Noszvaj from Szarvas Square a roundabout will lead to Gárdonyi Géza Memorial Museum car park on Bástya Street. This is adjacent to the Northern gate of the castle.
There is also a car parking place opposite of Hotel Panoráma on Kossuth Lajos Street. There is a fee for parking there. The castle is accessible on foot from Dózsa György Square.
