  • The perfect place for children, or as an adult. Both hunting and the model railway exhibition is fascinating.

  • The Railway Museum was presented "to me child's play", but each of us lives a curious baby! But here on the huge layout-1.8 thousand. miniature buildings and streets, trees, mountains, and valleys; 75 trains that connect the actual layouts of towns in the region! And when all the trains came in motion-our eyes lit up and we headed out, Spellbound, follow them! .... A light was on in the trains in Windows ... Hunting Museum, too, seemed like a "stuffed" .... Yes, animal lovers will not be easy to see them killed, but you have to appreciate the skill of the creators of the Museum! We presented ranges of animals, the world they live and symbiosis; each Hall has signage; There are stands with decorative crockery hunting themes, statues, tapestries, pictures and books. And pictures, as well as the famous Awards hunters of Hungary, who gave their trophies to the Museum I recommend to visit!

  • We have visited it in November when the weather was still fine. Parking space is in front of the castle and for 2€ we bought around 2,5h. Buying a ticket was a challenge because of the queue I didn't have time to read small printed price list. I just asked a friendly lady in front of me for an advice. She told me to buy a ticket for all exhibits , so I bought a tickets for 30€, 2 adults and one kid. It turned out that I bought a ticket for seven museums including a castle. So we've stayed at these places for around 5 hours to visit all of them. Finding all museums/exhibits was a small mission because there are no signs where to go after vising a castle. I'm sure that with better signs, webpage and a large price list with a map at the entrance they would have more happy visitors.
  • Beautiful grounds and scenery. The library was my favorite room and has an interesting history. The museum attendants are knowledgeable and friendly. Unfortunately, the huge con for me is that most of the museum isn't accessible without buying separate tickets for each part OR is closed to public completely.
  • I have been in nicer castel in my life but this is also oke. The ticket is quiet expensive. I offee just the palm house and the bird garden. That was really spectacular!
  • 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.
  • 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.
