Take some time to walk around the beautiful grounds of Chapultepec, it's a beautiful place with an interesting history and sweeping views of Mexico City.

We went up there on a nice sunny day. The castle is a long walk up the hill, but when getting there the 360 degrees view down to the city is awesome. I loved the second-floor garden with x-mas decoration. The murals are cool and the stained glass windows are superb. Definitely worth the long hike up and down.

We loved the palace with it's murals and historic artifacts. Beautiful rooms and gorgeous views of the city. If you visit Mexico City this is worth your time and we highly recommend touring the palace.

After being in Mexico City for just over a year, we finally toured the Chapultepec Castle. We lucked out and went on a smog-free day which provided us with a spectacular view of the city down below as well as the mountains in the distance. The grounds and gardens were well kept and looked perfect. They had already decorated for... More

The views of the city in all directions from the castle are the best views. The castle is absolutely beautiful and is some insight how the rich folks lived. The items they have in display are beautiful. As great as the castle is, the views are even better. It is a lot of walking.

We walked up to the castle but did not go inside as it was getting late. I wish we would have entered and toured the castle--next time. You can see the castle from far away and it's a beautiful site. The grounds is a park and nice to walk around in.

It was quite a hike up to see the castle, and for some reason they do not allow you to bring your bottled water with you. Gorgeous old castle and grounds. And on a clear day great view down the Paseo de Reforma.

If you are an artist, architect or engineer this place is a must visit. Highly recommended for a field trip, part of an internship or thesis work. I won't spill the beans but you gotta go see it yourself. It is very detailed, immaculate, well planned and designed. We couldn't design or build something like that today with the skills... More
