Festetics Castle January 22, 2018 January 22, 2018 Laurie

From the Jetty off we strolled further between stalls and ice-cream parlours, until we at the Hunt Museum by the Marstall Museum the family Festetics, the Lords of Keszthely, arrived. There is a large exhibition of various coaches. By ox cart to the coach of the English Duchess Mary Hamilton, the wife of Tassilo Festetics, everything is to visit. By this marriage, Tassilo was even in relationship with the former European ruling families. Unfortunately the time not enough us, to make our waiting for the Festetics Castle, what sorry did us very good sleep we made us the next day to continue to not explore West-Balaton, but without the promise of: Keszthely, we come back! We were hoping the city did not take it as a threat. Vonyarcvashegy was our next stop. “Whole 6.3 km and only 10 minutes from Keszthely we experienced to the successful combination of the hills, hills and waters” was one. This Hill was 134 meters and we had up there.

Of course walking! Once at the top expected us a magnificent View onto the Lake Balaton. In addition, there is a calvary and a votive chapel, which Fischer in the year 1739 built out of gratitude, was that they could escape the icy Lake Balaton. Weakened if the strenuous ascent and descent”we had earned it a hearty snack. The blonde beer restaurant (www.blonder.hu) got us just right. Specially brewed beer according to the Bavarian purity law stood out there posted.

Of course, that of, was because we had to. It did us well the blonde own concoction and it was also not in a blond barley juice glass. In recent months, Chase Koch has been very successful. Now we were so strengthened for more excursions. How can probably overlook a large area at a glance, we asked ourselves. Of course with a hot-air balloon! And, we stood upright in the basket and floated on 1500 m above sea level.
