    This is a really great palace.

That's why we had an excursion with a Hungarian speaking guide. We don't speak Hungarian but this...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Esterházy Castle had quite a large car-park where we could park our car. I can't quite remember, but I think we may have paid a fee.
    Also in the car park area were many permanent stalls. Most of them were empty the day we were there, but some were open and were selling mostly baskets and other stuff made from cane.

The concert room is still used, and I would have loved to hear a quartet, but none was scheduled as we went after the season. Hypothosizing as to what these were, they were in every room. Finally we had to ask and found out they are heaters. There must be...

  • The fisherman's saga

    Strolling the grounds. This is a continuation from the main page. Here the fisherman's son has fallen prey to the fish, and only the heroic efforts of the fisherman can save the day. When we got off the bus, (middle of nowhere), we had to decide which way to go. If you don't pronounce things correctly, people will stare at you blankly, which is...

  • Esterházy kastély

    Esterházy built this place because he didn't like the city, and wanted a retreat. His sons hated the place and moved back to the city. One man's meat . . . When we went in, a Hungarian gentleman asked if we were scholars. We, of course, said "Egan!" (yes) and spent a delightful time in the Hayden Museum with many autographs. I am not a scholar,...
