We came to the town at the evening, when the palace was already closed, but anyway it looks beautiful at the evening. I will definitely recommend to visit this place.

We came during the off season, and on a cool day, we mostly wandered the grounds. The gardens are well tended and there are signs in multiple languages explaining the history. There is also a small restaurant with extraordinary pastries...a must visit!

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.

Overal: free entrance more or less. 500HUF for tower entrance was worth it. The building is huge and i didnt expect this in a city such as this. I definitelly recommend visiting this gem. The garden around and the pond are nice too. All in...More

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...More
