Oh my i can not say enough about how beautiful and amazing this castle is. Its a must see if you plan to go to Mexico City. The admission was like $70 pesos but kids under 13 are free. You must arrive early though because after 12 you can expect a long line to get in.

we all enjoyed the very affordable way to pass the day in the spectacular Chapultepec Castle during semana santa, the long lines were worth it.

Chapultepec Castle is an amazing place, you can view the "Angel de la Indepencia" at the end of the tour. The diligences are charming.

We stopped by on a Friday afternoon at 2 pm. The line was all the way to the bottom of the hill by the lockers. From the lockers, it is a ten minute uphill walk. Since the line was barely moving, we opted to return the next morning at 9 am. To our surprise, there was no line at all. Maybe 10 people had walked up the hill before us. We practically had the castle to ourselves. I would definitely recommend going right when they open at 9 am to avoid any crowds.

Large bags and water bottles are not allowed. If you think your bag may be too big, rent a locker before you hike all the way up. The walk uphill is easy, but you may want some water and comfortable shoes. Unfortunately water is not allowed in the castle, so you will have to dispose of it at the top.

Tickets were 70 MXN per person. The first floor is the National History Museum. The information is all in Spanish which wasn’t a problem for me, but if you can’t read Spanish, read up on the history beforehand.

There are some AMAZING murals throughout the museum. I also loved the stained glass windows on the second floor, and gorgeous gardens. The castle offers great views of the city.

We spent about 1.5 hours here and highly recommend it!
