  • Se enjoyed every single moments in there. Specially the model museum. We were with our 8 years old daughter and she loved it.  more »
  • The Museum is not located directly next to the Castle, how could the name of the cause, but it is necessary to cross the road and get out of the area. In the building there are several expositions (hunting, weapons) really don't know, because we've come here mainly for the reason the railway models. You can see several models from the local neighborhood to the snowy Alps and all the boys and dads will certainly enthusiastic. However, my girlfriend and she did not share her enthusiasm, I think I'm still there now. :-)

  • 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.
  • Beautiful building. Cake shop is amazing.
  • This is a really nice place with historic castle and a garden. Must see.
