Buda Castle

 Our hotel was on the Buda side of the Danube.  
 We were able to walk to the castle on Saturday morning.
 A pretty church on our walk.
 We passed the Chain Bridge.  The first bridge that connected Buda and Pest.
 We were feeling energetic and decided to walk up the hill instead of taking the funicular!  
We had much prettier views that way!

 We were also much warmer now!

 We happened to walk up on the changing of the guard.
 I read about the Labyrinth or dungeon at the castle.  It seemed like a fun idea!  One part of the Labyrinth was completely in the dark!  You only had a rope to hold onto!   
It was creepy, but we all had a blast!
 At the end of the Labyrinth was a grave marked Dracula.  
 We had a traditional Hungarian lunch at the castle of goulash and chicken paprika. 
                       We all wanted to go to the Christmas Market that evening so we went to the 
                                                hotel and took a rest before the evening!
