Our tour guide encouraged us to arrive before 10am - wait for the toilets when you arrive, as hundreds of people descend upon this stunning castle after 11am. Tour guide was informative and we got time to take lots of photos and enjoy the palace...More

Wherever you are, inside or outside the Castle, the Views are astonishing. It's a bit expensive to visit both,ground and 1st Floors but it's worth every penny. The Story and things you see inside the Castle are not things you see every day. If you...More

Peles Castle is a beautiful historical place to visit. It is very busy and didn't seem like it was very well run, so the wait to get into the castle (even though we were on an organised day trip) was very long. It would have...More

This is a very impressive palace, not a castle, and we do recommend a visit. There is minimal organization after you buy your ticket and before going inside however, with some resemblance of a line but many people cutting and a priority given to large...More
