Review of Festetics Palace

We didn't spend much time here, just a quick stop on our way from Heviz, yet I can say the palace is wonderful from the outside. We walked a bit though the gardens that are behind the building. Everything is clean and clearly taken care of. There is a cafe and you can take the guided tour if you want to and have the time!

The palace is beautiful and there's a lot to see and learn about it. The guided tour is interesting although sometimes difficult to understand due to the acoustics of the halls.

The garden is huge and also very nice, must see.

It´s a nice baroque building, with a neat park around it. The exhibition is not too big, and at the end there´s an interactive part about the history of the castle and the family it used to belong to.

Big historical monument in a definitely good shape, and six different exhibitions included. Good program also with kids, but needs half if a day. The castle in Keszthely was built and used by 7 generations of family Festetics. They were Lords and investors also with interesting in sciences, that can you see everywhere. Castle is renewed, with lots of original furniture, paintings and carpets and with an unimaginable historical library. Beautiful big garden. Palm house. Exhibition about horses, coaches, hunting, guns and wild animals and model railway. Every information are available in Hungarian, English and German. Restrooms are clear. You can organise your visit: there are different combined tickets. Recommended.
