    Make a point to visit the upper floors of the castle (only accessible by narrow winding stairs) and enjoy the best views of the park from the park. Call ahead to check if they’re open.

    The views are beautiful on the ground floor, but if you want to go inside you should go before 5 pm on a day other than Monday.

    I went there on a hot summer day... BIG MISTAKE! I boiled inside the castle walls but it was worth it when we got to the top because the view was breath taking!

    Having a princess moment? Head to Belvedere to reenact your favorite Disney moment. Grab a blanket and share a bottle of wine with friends in a unique picnic spot overlooking the Great Lawn. —Tera L.

    It's smaller than one might think but climbing up to the various balconies gives you a great view of the surrounding park

    The Belvedere Castle offers visitors exactly what its name implies: "Beautiful View or Beautiful to see." I totally agree!

    Lovely castle that overlooks parts of Central Park. Turtle Pond is fun for - you guessed it! - turtle watching.

    If you plan on trompin' 'round the Park all day, don't save the steps up to the Castle for your last stop. There's quite a lot of 'em...
