Brunszvik Castle
Hungary

75 min

Given that it takes only half an hour drive from Budapest, it is totally worth a detour from the motorway. The palace belonged to the... Brunszvik family and Ludwig van Beethoven was a close friend of the family and gave piano lessons to Brunsvik girls, thus spent considerable time there. That’s why today, within the Brunszvik manor house you will find a small Beethoven museum where you can explore some period musical instruments, music sheets and information on the Brunszvik family relationship with the composer. The extensive landscape park around the castle boasts of various trees such as white cypress, ginkgo, maple and plane trees but also a small pond and an island with an open-air stage where concerts dedicated to Beethoven are held.

Hungary

The Benedictine Archabbey of Pannonhalma is one of the oldest historical monuments in Hungary, established in 966 by Prince Geza. The monastery became an archabbey... in 1541 but during the Turkish occupation the monks had to abandon the abbey on several occasions. The most notable sights include the Basilica with the Crypt which is also the oldest part of the abbey, dating from 13th century; the monumental library with 360.000 volumes; the Archabbey collection and the Baroque refectory. Visitors can also relax in the beautiful botanical garden, an incredible arboretum and in the winery and the restaurant. Today, there are about 50 monks living in the monastery who run the boarding school for Benedictine monks.

Gyor
Hungary

75 min

Gyor is a beautiful and charming town that hosts a vast array of architectural, cultural and natural treasures and has therefore received the European Award... for its contribution to the protection of historical heritage. The reminders of an eventful history can be seen in its well reconstructed Baroque center, full of narrow lanes, museums, palaces and churches. The Bishop's Cathedral on Kaptalan Hill, although beautiful from the outside, it’s more important for the fascinating sacred objects that it houses, among which the reliquary of Szent Laszlo I (St. Ladislaus I), king of Hungary who reigned between 1077 and 1095. Another church worth exploring is the 17th century Baroque Benedictine Church. The pride of the city is Becsi kapu ter (Vienna Gate Square), considered by many as the most delightful Baroque square in Hungary.
