One must take a pleasant stroll through Chapultepec Park in order to arrive at the foot of the castle's hill. Vendors selling food, drinks and souvenirs line the path. There are beautiful Jacaranda trees and much shade. The hike up to the castle is about a quarter mile, but the view is amazing. Take it slow and enjoy! Once at... More

A beautiful, historical castle located in massive Chapultepec Park. The building is impressive with lots of amazing artwork and great views of the city.

I originally visited an unofficial website that noted there were audioguides for this museum. I don't really speak Spanish so I wasn't able to ask about them, and the official website actually does not list them.... so be prepared if you don't understand Spanish! The cost of the museum is very inexpensive. When I went it was only 70 pesos.... More

The castle is beautiful and the views are unbeatable! Very few plaques are in English so read up before you visit (if required). Don't bring any water with you as, with most places in the city, you can't bring it in with you. Also expect to wait in line for entrance but it moves pretty quickly. Excellent views of the... More

It's an amazing place. I loved our visit. But you can't take water into the Castle, you have to pay to use any picture equipment (cameras etc) and after all that nonsense you will be amazed with the interior.

A must visit place in Mexico City, because this is the only castle built by the european royalty during the spanish intervention in Mexico. It is very well maintained and you can take a look of the magnificent way of living that Maximilian of Augsburg and his family had.

We had a fantastic day in Chapultepec, it ended in the Castle. I would recommend a guided tour if you do not speak Spanish or if you want to learn more about Mexican History. We took beautiful pictures walking up to see the castle and at the main deck we enjoyed these wonderful panoramic views of the whole city especially... More

Amazing view, one of the places you can't miss, museum is not as great as the surroundings and off course the best is the view...especially is the weather is nice, normally it is... During weekends, If you go really in the morning right after opening, you can enjoy more because it gets a little busy.
