The castle is the oldest and most valuable historical heritage of Veszprém. However, due to its position at a high altitude, it is difficult to access. It is only accessible by car via Vár utca, while it can be reached on foot from two directions through steep walkways and stairs, which are relatively treacherous and time-consuming. The basalt cobblestone pavement of Vár Street is not pedestrian or bicycle friendly, and it's a real challenge for those with pushchairs. Traffic is rather heavy in both directions, which is further hampered by the castle walls narrowing the street to 4 meters in some places. Unfortunately, the Holy Trinity Square is currently used as an parking facility.
In addition to being an important centre of religious life, the castle is also an institutional centre and a workplace.
The properties belong to three proprietors: the Archdiocese of Veszprém, the Council of the City of Veszprém and the Hungarian State. The castle as a unit can work well if the parts are joined together according to a common will, so the owners can work together to transform the castle hill into a well-functioning part of the city.
The castle is a popular excursion destination, its cultural institutions are popular.
Successful building renovations such as the Dubniczay Palace (Vár utca 29.) and the Bíró-Giczey House (Vár utca 31.) can serve as an exemplary model for the currently underused buildings, such as the Körmendy House (Vár utca 39.), the Grand Seminar (Vár utca 20.) and also for the buildings which are currently completely disused unfortunately, such as the former Piarist Grammar School (Vár utca 10.) and Várkert (Vár utca 17.).
The Körmendy House and the Grand Seminar, which are owned by the Hungarian State and are under the asset management of the University of Pannonia, include student accommodation in addition to serving as an educational centre.
The building of the former Piarist Grammar School at 10 Vár Street is currently unused. The building is listed and it is considered to be a nationally protected monument, an educational building, and its quarters have served educational purposes for centuries. The proprietor is the Council of Veszprém.
The empty building at 17 Vár Street, owned by the City of Veszprém, is also a nationally protected monument that was built as an annex to the Simoga House.
Leaving the area of the castle, but still close to the castle wall, the two plots of land owned by the council still have no assigned roles. These are the Ruttner House on the west side (Jókai Mór utca 8.) and the sports hall of the former Piarist Grammar School on the east side with the adjoining building.
