This is beautifull castle situated in nice park. I suggest you to buy combination of tickets for castle and Amazon haz museum (much better than coach museum).

We visited already a couple of times this palace in past few years. Just take a walk in the garden is a joy and impressive. The palace inside is very beautiful and ideal for everyone. Really worth to go there and see.

It is a must-see attraction near Lake Balaton. We went there in May 2016. The garden was gorgeous and we took amazing photos. It worth it to see the inside of the palace too. We stayed in Siofok at the Hotel Azur Premium. The weather was not really a beach weather and that is why we decided to drive an... More

We were here in august, it was pretty busy, and raining, after 30 min in line we found out that the most of the museum is not wheelchair accessible at all....we walked in the gardens for a bit, just to kill some time before lunch... :(

Arrived at 10am on a Sunday and bought a special all-exhibits pass which was really good value for money. The Coach museum was , despite my initial mis-givings, well worth a visit. The Hunting museum was fascinating, if a touch macabre. The model railway museum was a delight. The greenhouses and duck pond were a big hit with the kids.... More
