  • Probably you know if something is at your spot every day for years that are not really interesting for you. It was a surprise that it is really good. While I went there? I had my American lady there s...  more »

  • The castle as well as the surrounding park is beautiful. Our visit has been unfortunately spoiled by the stubborn, unfriendly staff, which did not allow to enter the exhibition with our 1yr old baby in baby carrier! They insisted to see it as backpack which is not allowed.
  • Visiting this this castle is simply a MUST if you are in the area. The spacious castle grounds are free to visit and explore. You can also pay a small fee to go inside the castle. Unlike most other castles I've visited you are free to roam at your own pace (not forced to go as a group with a guide) which I find much more enjoyable. My favorite highlights were the MASSIVE library and the beautiful portraits throughout. You can see a very famous painting of Marie Antoinette.
  • Every time we happen to pass Keszthely we visit the Castle and its beautiful park. I also love to have a drink or a cup of coffee and a cake in the cafe in the castle which has a lovely interior.
  • This is a really nice place with historic castle and a garden. Must see.
  • Great place for walks. Pálmaház is so beautifull, i could stay there for hours. I will definitely visit this place again.
