The Baroque and Classicist buildings of Győr’s old town, the Danube bank, the view from Káptalandomb, the restaurants and confectioneries, the churches, the canoe and kayak rental points on the waterfront and the Basilica are some of the city’s most interesting sights. The Basilica is home to one of Hungary’s most significant sacral monuments, the St Ladislaus Herm, the only authentic depiction of an Árpád House king.
After enjoying a city walk, have lunch and then visit a nearby spa. In the evening, head to Győrújbarát or Nyúl and visit a local winery.
In the morning, visit the spectacular cellar row carved into the “gorge” on the edge of Nyúl. Then dedicate the day to the many activities awaiting you in and around the Archabbey of Pannonhalma. The building itself is already impressive, as is the view from the parapet, the 19th-century library, the Romanesque sub-church, the 15th-century bell tower, the Gothic Basilica and of course the almost six hectares of lavender fields in the herb garden in summer. There’s also a gift shop and distillery with plenty of lavender oil gifts on offer.
Don’t miss the 22-hectare arboretum and the Boldog Mór lookout, from which you can also see the northern part of the Bakony Range in clear weather, the canopy nature trail, which can also be accessed by wheelchair, the cosy abbey café and the restaurant also run by the abbey, where you can enjoy a relaxing, delicious lunch after visiting all the above.
You can then visit the abbey cellar for a guided tasting to learn about the abbey wines and hear some interesting stories about them. Spend the night here or in Győr.
Visit the National Stud Farm in Bábolna. Their car collection and stud history exhibition will be a real experience for amateurs too. However, after visiting the Stud Farm and the arboretum, the children are sure to be glued to the foals in their enclosure for hours!
The estate also offers equipage displays, a restaurant and carriage rides, a worthy way to bid the Pannonhalma wine district farewell, but after lunch, of course.
