“Lovely pieces”

Beautiful interior and exterior.. Interesting, but sad history for previous owners. Some lovely pieces of art, family portraits and pieces of furniture. Also to see the fabulous carriage display and miniature railway system.

Worth spending a whole day around here. So many things to visit and think about. Feels like you're truly thrown back in time. Wonderful!

Very nicely restored palace. The family that lived in the palace were horse breeders, so if you are a horse lover, you will find the palace and grounds very interesting. Gardens are beautiful. There is also a carriage museum on site which is very interesting. Overall, it was well worth the time and expense.

We took part in an event called "magical evening" which was absolutely wnderful! The ticket was 2500 HUF/person but was worth much more. The evening started with piano and chello concert which was really enjoyable. Then we took part in a palace guided tour in english. Our guide was a lovely woman, dressed in historical dress. Our group was quite small so the contact with the guide was direct. She was telling a lot of interesting stories which really fell into memory. The tour ended with a glass of incredible champagne for everyone. At the very end there was a wonderful light show outside the building in the company of beautiful music. One of the best events I have ever been :)
