Nádasdy Castle – one of the best preserved Renaissance palaces in Hungary

The construction of the Nádasdy Castle in Sárvár only began in the late 13th century but it saw its heyday when it was owned by the Nádasdy family in the 16th and 17th centuries. This long history provides the basis for diverse exhibitions: you can see famous works of glass art at the glass exhibition, there is an exhibition presenting the everyday life of the most Hungarian of military units, the Hussars, and you can also discover how furniture styles changed over the centuries and even see the Nádasdy clock, the only work of art belonging to the family that once owned the castle. The ceremonial hall is perhaps the most impressive sight: it is one of the most imposing Hungarian Baroque interiors in the country with its dazzling murals and stuccos. If you are interested in Renaissance history, you can immerse yourself in it here. 

The Boating Lake of Sárvár is a great choice all year round.

Discover the islands and peninsulas of the lake system in the southern part of Sárvár. The Boating Lake is a great destination all year long. In the summer, you can sunbathe on the water while in a row boat or pedalo, and you can also picnic in the cool shade of the giant trees. In winter you can skate on the frozen water. If you like taking photos or are just interested in birdlife, be sure to come to the lake in the spring or autumn: this is when you can find the beautiful birds nesting between the islands or flying south. The Boating Lake is also a great choice for those who love fishing, but it is also a good idea to come here if you just want to walk around in an inspiring natural setting.

During your visit


Harmonious acids, purple colour, berry fruit flavours: you simply must taste some wines made from Blauburger grapes. If you are in the vicinity of Kőszeg, close to the Austrian-Hungarian border, there is one more thing, apart from the many exciting sights, that you really shouldn’t miss; the heavenly wine made from Blauburger blue grapes. This grape variety can also be found in the Eger bull’s blood, the deservedly famous Hungarian wine, which speaks for itself. Cheers!

Nádasdy dumplings

Not only is the Nádasdy Castle worth exploring; you should also let in the temptation of one of the jewels of Hungarian cuisine, the mouth-watering Nádasdy dumplings: these walnut-sized dumplings offer a sweet treat while you’re exploring the local sights. When you hear about the fragrant dumplings filled with cinnamon plum jam it’ll make your mouth water. Head to a local restaurant and taste this delicious treat.
