FESTETICS BAROQUE PALACE & HELIKON MUSEUM
The 18 original or reconstructed rooms of the exhibition show the aristocratic lifestyle of the 18th and 19th centuries. The most valuable part of the palace is Hungary’s sole intact aristocratic private library.
HISTORICAL MODEL RAILWAY EXHIBITION
One of Europe’s largest model railway exhibitions can be seen on the second floor of the Hunting Museum. 75 trains run according to timetable on 2700 meters of tracks surrounded by 1800 buildings. The authentic trains are made up of engines, passenger cars and freight wagons of the 19th and 20th centuries. The rail network of the stations was based on photos and original plans, some of which are also exhibited.
The Coach Exhibition is a collection of more than 50 coaches, carriages and sleighs related to the aristocratic lifestyle of the 18th and 19th centuries.
The building of the Coach Museum used to be the stable and coach house of the central Festetics estate. It was built by Tassilo Festetics II at the time of the last reconstruction period of the palace between 1883-1887.
The core of the collection includes the hundreds of trophies that Franz Josef Windisch-Grätz donated to Hungary, and the selected trophies of Baron George Dózsa. The museum commemorates the most well-known Hungarian hunters like Zsigmond Széchenyi, Kálmán Kittenberger, Ákos Szederjei and Endre Nagy. The collection of one of the founders of the Hunting Museum, Béla Hidvégi, consists of huntable big game animals from five continents. The life-size animals can be seen in their natural habitat.
The Palm House, opened in 2012, evokes the tradition of orangeries and tropical plant houses typical of the royal and aristocratic lifestyle. It presents the most beautiful exotic plants from Tahiti to Florida.
The building of the Palm House is situated in the park of the Festetics palace. In the spectacle garden, which demonstrates the most beautiful species of the tropical and Mediterranean flora, visitors can gain insight into the special flora of distant continents. Apart from the rare flower wonders, cultivated plants can also be seen, e.g. cocoa, sugarcane, coffee.
The plumeria hybrids of the Palm House, the number of which is nearly 200, make up the second largest such collection in Europe. The tropical hibiscus material consists of 500 hybrids, making it one of the top collections in Europe.
Partly a museum, but also a good place to stop by for coffee and cake if you’re visiting the Festetics castle nearby. You will find a wide selection of cakes and gateaux, tea, coffee and ice creams. You may also be tempted by the hundreds of hand made marzipan figurines that can be perfect gifts for your loved ones.
