In the morning, discover the secrets of cheese-making at the Etyek ‘Sajtútállomás’ (Cheese Station), then taste some still and sparkling wines in an Etyek winery, before visiting the Ham Master, where you can learn all about making ham.
Visit Biatorbágy, where you can marvel at the viaduct and go on an exciting hike along the Pannonian Sea Treasures study trail at the foot of the Nyakas Stone. If you are hungry either before or after the hike, you can have lunch at the Swabian butcher’s, where there are freshly fried delicacies on offer. If you still have time in the afternoon, visit the Korda Film Park in Etyek or just go back to Öreghegy or Újhegy and taste some more delicious wines.
Marvel at the football stadium in Felcsút, built according to the plans of Imre Makovecz, visit the local sheep’s cheesemaker, then climb aboard the narrow gauge railway and take the train to Alcsútdoboz Arboretum, where the façade wall of the former Habsburg Palace still stands today. It attracts a lot of visitors, especially in spring, when the snowdrops are in flower.
After lunch, visit the Vál Valley. Not one of the really cosy press houses you can see today was built in the 1800s. It’s worth stopping off here for a wine tasting and then you can continue to Martonvásár and the Brunswick Palace with renewed energy. It’s worth following the Barangoló Palace Park educational trail, which leads along the path around Öreg Lake. Information boards mark the way, describing the natural, architectural, cultural and historical sights of the Palace Park. Children and adults alike will enjoy its games, puzzles and plenty of interesting information.
The discovery boards and playful tasks help you improve your knowledge, and you can check the answers in the Agroverzum Science Experience Centre building. End the day with a wine tasting and dinner in Pázmánd and spend the night in accommodation on the vineyard hill.
Cycle around Lake Velence! The area around the lake conceals various interesting sites, such as the Mihály Vörösmarty Memorial Museum in Kápolnásnyék and the Géza Gárdonyi Memorial House in Agárd.
It’s worth taking at dip at one of the beaches on the southern shore and then you can shorten the trip by taking your bike on the ferry from Agárd to the opposite island, where you can have lunch in the inn there. After finishing your tour, you can still visit a winery in Pázmánd for a tasting.
