Learn about the aristocratic lifestyle of the 18th and 19th centuries at Festetics Palace. This Baroque palace houses 18 original or reconstructed rooms, an aristocratic private library, and a stable block with a collection of coaches and carriages. The rooms' interior design has remained intact since the 1880s. Stop at one of the most significant areas in the palace, the oak staircase, to see the original family portrait gallery. The palace also features a hunting museum with one of Europe's largest model railway exhibits. A naturalistic landscape park in the English fashion surrounds the palace. Festetics Palace is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Keszthely Edition.

  • If you are passing in this corner of Lake Balaton, visiting this Palace is unconditional. Sheltered and remote of the urban depravity, conflicts and wars, this Palace remained completely to its original state. It shows brilliantly how a family could build a real empire while being patron and prolific for the country and the region. The visit to the Museum of the couplings is interesting. The Park is superb.
