Budavári Labirintus (Labyrinth of Buda Castle) Review

Used as a wine cellar during the 16th and 17th centuries and then as an air-raid shelter during World War II, this 16-meter (52-foot) deep, 1,200-meter (3,900-foot) long labyrinth—entered at Úri utca 9 below an early-18th-century house—can be explored on a tour or, if you dare, on your own. English-language brochures are available. Day tours are available daily 9:30–7:30; night tours, which you should book in advance, take place 8:30 pm–8 am.

    Budavári Labirintus Review

    My 13-year-old son and I toured the labrinth. It was dimly lit, and so a bit spooky, but not scary. There are re-created "monuments" here and there, and a number of maps to help you find your way through.

    And the end of the labrinth, there's a portion that is not lit. You make your way through by means of a guide rope along the wall. You CAN choose to skip this part, and exit through a nearby door - we chose this path!
