The castle is absolutely majestic and full of rich history! My favorite part were the rooms on display. The views of the city from the gardens were the best. The walk to get to the castle was not too bad. You can NOT take your water on to the castle grounds, so drink up while you walk. There is bathrooms to use for free while up there. While you are visiting Chapultepec park I recommend you see this beautiful castle.
The most memorable part of Mexico City. There is a hike and from up there you will see why this park is called the lungs of the city. Museum is wonderful just gorgeous but nothing is written in English. Perhaps you can sharpen your Spanish skills. You gotta pay if you wanna use any kind of camera to take photos. Have fun walking down and around the park!
Lovely castle to visit in the morning within the first hour of it opening as the line to enter grows exponentially. A few things to note: 1) The climb to get to the entrance takes about 15 minutes. The incline up the hill isn't too bad but you will find yourself breaking a sweat as you reach the top. Luckily the hill is well maintained and you'll want to have your camera out to capture the hillside. 2) The entrance takes Pesos or credit cards. It's about $4 USD per person. 3) The guard will check your bag upon entering and will NOT allow liquids or snacks (granola bars for example) past the entrance. They will make you throw any of this away. 4) Once inside, the signs will lead you around the castle in an organized fashion.Quite easy to follow and go at your own pace. If you do go in the morning, you'll find less tourists and you'll be able to capture better photos. Overall this is a great place to spend 1-2 hours meandering around, looking at the architecture and the landscape. Since it's at the top of the hill you'll find great spots for lookouts over the city. You'll even be able to see the Angel of Independence from a few of the outdoor terraces.
The palace is beautiful and the views from it are worth the visit in itself. On top of all that, you may get a opera performance on the top floor (check for performances before visiting). The castle is on top of a hill, so prepare yourself for the 15 minute climb. The museum aspect of the palace is lacking, but since the displays take you through the amazing palace, it's forgivable. Most items are not explained in English
Enjoyed my walk through. I started too late at 3.15pm so missed a lot of ground floor. So pleased I saw all of the upper stories. An amazing place
