Buda Castle is a historical castle and palace complex of the Kings of Hungary that is situated in Budapest, Hungary. A castle was first built on the site in 1265, but it wasn't till between 1749 and 1769 that the current castle/palace was built. The castle was built to a Baroque style on Budapest's Castle Hill which has numerous buildings of the same Baroque and Medieval styles. Today, the castle is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is open to the public to visit and it is home to the National Gallery and Budapest History Museum.
Budapest is a fairly small city, so walking to sights is not out of the equation for most people. Walking to the castle is fairly easy as it is elevated over the city so you know what direction to head towards, it will take around 15 minutes up the hill to the castle. Buses also run from the city centre to the castle, take the 16 or 116 buses. Another way up to the castle is by cable car, these run from Clark Adam Square.

The castle is open all day as it's used as a district, the buildings though are on set times and are restricted from public access in most cases. The museums that use the castle as their home are open from 10am-6pm. Many different tours run around the castle, such as segway tours, walking tours etc. It is advised to check out the website for more information on those tours.
