Nestled between the Matra and Bukk Mountains in northern Hungary, Eger represents a mixture of historical discovery and relaxing pleasures.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Eger Castle and Visitor's Centre of the Eger Archbishop's Palace. Step out of Eger to go to Lillafured and see Anna Sinter Cave, which is approximately 1h 05 min away. The adventure continues: make a trip to Dobo Square, see the interesting displays at Kopcsik Marcipania Szamos edessegbolt, learn about winemaking at Valley of the Beautiful Women, and step into the grandiose world of De La Motte Castle.

For traveler tips, more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Eger trip itinerary planning tool.

Beirut, Lebanon to Eger is an approximately 10.5- hour combination of flight and car. The time zone difference when traveling from Beirut to Eger is minus 1 hour.
