Mexico, Mexico City Guide (B): Self-Guided Walking Tour: Chapultepec, Mexico City

A city is best explored on foot. That’s a fact. And many people enjoy doing it on their own instead of booking a tour. Myself included. I prefer taking my time during walking around, staying longer in places I enjoy and skipping others I do not like that much. I like to have time taking some photos, having a coffee or sitting a while on a square while people watching. All this is better done when you go independently without a guide and a huge group around you. Due to the fact that there is a lack of self guided walking tours online for certain cities, I thought it might be a good idea to start a series of independent and self-guided walking tours I have done.

The castle Castillo de Chapultepec is an important place for the Mexican history. Once a palace of the aztecs which was destroyed by the Spanish and later a military academy whose cadets fought in the Mexican-American war of 1847 and won against the US. Today the castle accommodates the National History Museum.

Getting there:When arriving at Chapultepec Metro Station, leave at the exit Bosque de Chapultepec. Go straight and then turn left and cross the bridge. You can see the castle from there. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
