Reconstructed Royal Stables and Guardhouse Completed at Buda Castle

The former Royal Stables and Riding Hall, as well as the Guardhouse, have been reconstructed at Buda Castle, based on the original plans of Alajos Hauszmann as part of the National Hauszmann Plan, bringing the landmarks back to their former glory.

The original Stables of the Royal Palace were built at the outer area of the western walls of the Castle in 1899, designed by Alajos Hauszmann. The ornate building of the riding hall suffered several shots during a siege in the Second World War, and the stables were later demolished in the communist era.

The reconstruction of the Stables and the Guardhouse is part of a larger plan- the National Hauszmann Plan. The ten-year scheme aims to revamp Budapest’s Castle District and reconstruct buildings demolished after the Second World War to provide space for restaurants, offices, and event venues.

In contrast to the original plans, the new area of the riding hall will operate as an event venue for balls, art fairs, and festivals and not used for its original purpose. However, during the reconstruction, which was overseen by award-winning architect and art historian Ferenc Potzner, the buildings were built up in their former glory with the original materials. Potzner was also responsible for the reconstruction of Várkert Bazaar, as well as Sándor Palace, the official residence of president János Áder. Potzner worked together on the buildings with another architect, Kornél Baliga, and art historians from the Budapest History Museum.

According to the plans, the Guardhouse will be open to visitors after the café and confectionery are finished inside it, likely in the spring, while the riding hall and stables will be open after the patio around it has also been arranged.

Apart from the reconstruction of these buildings, several projects are currently underway as part of a three-year, HUF 36 billion (EUR 113.1m) program in which the government will revamp the roads, the castle walls, and parks in the district. According to the Várkapitányság (Castle Council), the Riding Hall cost HUF 3.8 billion (EUR 11 million) and the Guardhouse, HUF 3.78 billion.
