Chapultepec Castle, Mexico City Reviews

  • Awesome place to visit, scenery is beautiful. Definitely a must see if you're in the city of Mexico. I recommend Wearing comfortable shoes & having an umbrella or some type of protection from the rain. Food & drinks are not allowed as you get closer to the castle & backpacks & bags will be checked. Security guards are very friendly and if you're handicapped or need assistance, wheelchairs are available at no cost & so is your entry.

  • A place full of Mexican history. The castle is beautiful and very well keep. You'll have to walk on a steady easy up hill for about a mile from the gate to the main entrance. There is a fee to enter, I can't remember who much but is not expensive. Food and liquids are not allowed, but there are water drinking fountains on the left side on the main entrance. You will definitely enjoy your visit to the castillo de Chapultepec!

  • this is an amazing castle located in the middle of the park. it is worth the visit. there are lovely murals and other works of are. the view from the balcony is amazing. make sure and wear comfortable shoes, because it's a lot of walking. after you visit the castle, you might want to take a walk in the park, or have picnic. there are so many things you can do. please note that there is no food or water allowed inside the castle.

  • This place is a must visit for every person in the American continent, because it’s the ONLY ROYAL CASTLE IN THE AMERICAN CONTINENT!! The people who lived here were real Europeans, In fact Maximillian I of Mexico is an Austrian emperor. Going to the castle is quite a walk, so be prepared. Unfortunately, they don’t let you bring food or water, if your thirsty, you will have to deal with the water fountain. I would suggest this place to have a small bus taking people, especially the elders up and back down. Just like Palace of Versailles, you cannot enter the rooms, you can only see entering the door, but a sign explaining the history of that room blocks you. Still worth it though. The interiors look like a European baroque palace. The entire place brings the classical period Europe to Mexico! In conclusion, if you are in America and can’t afford to visit Palace of Versailles, this is the perfect place to visit. It has been well kept and not turned into ruins. The view is also very nice from the castle. Mexico City has an amazing history of Europeans. Parts of the city, like San Angel has a lot of European themed buildings to visit!

  • You cannot take water or food past a security gate. There is nothing to eat or drink while at the castle. Keep that in mind. It is a beautiful castle with interesting exhibits. There are carriages, a room where the princess was educated, dining room, princess bedroom, sitting room, elevator, and other things to see.
