“Pricey, But Worth The Time”
Review of Festetics Palace

Festetics Palace
Ranked #1 of 27 things to do in Keszthely
Certificate of Excellence

We paid 6,500 forint admission for two plus another 1,200 forints for English language audio. I suggest the audio is a must in order to get the most out of the visit here. The rooms are very well displayed and you get a sense of the family history in this place and their importance in aristocratic society by the time the palace tour is over. I liked that we could go at our own pace and spend as much time in each room as we wanted.

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.
