A truly wonderful experience. Lots of culture and history, beautiful views. A truly superb Castle where you learn tons about the history of Mexico. I highly recommend you spend the morning then visit the museums and art expositions. Beautiful courtyards and glass art and period artwork. Go you won't be disappointed.

It is a good tour to visit, and also a exercising treck up the hill. It has beautiful painting and history relics and the view is very good.

Beautiful old mansion, nice views, lovely area all in all. I especially liked the garden courtyard. The rooms were all lovely, very European in style, so nothing new if you have seen this type of thing before, but still interesting. It's a 15 min walk uphill to get there.

The Chapultepec Castle is in the Bosque de Chapultepec which is a peaceful and relaxing park in the midst of the bustling city of Mexico. General admission is 70 mxn but I got in free because I´m over 60. There is a lot of art and history on display and there are great views of the city.

It is supposed to be one of the main attractions of Mexico City, but honestly, if you do not speak Spanish, better visit some other place or make some friends who are willing to translate. I did not find even one single word in English, the people at the desk do not understand English and every non Spanish speaker have... More

Peeking in at the royal rooms of the ill-fated Maximilian and his wife was a treat, but the murals here are truly breathtaking. You won't forget the one on the ceiling that shows one of the "child heroes"--military academy students--falling toward you. Some of them jumped from the ramparts of the castle to avoid being captured by the US Army... More

Great site, both for the castle itself and the engrossing presentation of Mexican political history. Be aware that not every taxi driver knows the Castle is also the Museum of History --mine didn't.
