In the morning, enjoy a stroll along the cellar row in Mór, where the traditional German press houses rub shoulders with numerous huge buildings almost reminiscent of classicist mansions. Afterwards, visit a winery in Mór and try to learn as much as possible about the wine district’s iconic variety, Ezerjó, during the tasting.
Afterwards, visit the Lamberg Palace and the Capuchin Church and monastery, before heading to Csókakő Castle and enjoying its wonderful views. You can walk to Csákberény from here, passing the steep limestone cliffs on the way.
Then visit the Bauxite Geological Park in Gánt, where a Martian landscape will unfold before your eyes, and end the day in Csákvár, where you can take a walk in the Esterházy Palace gardens. If you can, stay the night in Mór, where you can then enjoy a wine dinner in the evening.
In the morning, jump in the car and head to the Camaldolese hermitage in Majkpuszta. The Camaldolese monks, who had taken a vow of silence, cultivated herbs in front of their former cell houses, later, after the dissolution of the monastic order, the founding Esterházy family transformed the monastery into a hunting lodge. The later Prime Minister, Móric Esterházy, was born here and later lived here in cell 13 under communism with his wife, Margit Károlyi, the grandmother of writer Péter Esterházy.
The herb garden has been revived, so you can also taste some herbal teas. Then return to Mór for lunch and taste some wines at a local winery. Afterwards, head to Székesfehérvár and visit the coronation church, the main Basilica of the Assumption, extended by King Matthias, which can today only be found in the Ruin Garden.
Nearby, you will find the Globus Cruciger and the City Hall, Hiemer House, which houses the Hetedhét Toy Museum, the Bishop’s Palace, the King Matthias Monument, the Black Eagle Pharmacy Museum and the City Gallery, which boasts a permanent exhibition but also organises wonderful temporary exhibitions.
