A rather big castle with several rooms and rich exhibition. Archery and falconry show in the courtyard, funny games (e.g.. pillow fight) for kids, backyard animals. And the scenic view around in unbeatable.

Great experience! Visit this little town (Sumeg) and the Castle if you are around the Balaton area, it is worth it! Is it only ~ 20 km from Balaton.

We truly enjoyed our time at Sumeg Castle. Inside in the small cafe we had chimney bread and it was some of the best in all of Hungary. Make sure to try it as I will not disappoint!

Nice castle with a number of shows. I particularly enjoyed the falcon show where the falconier explained how the falcons were trained. There is a nice Csarda outdoor restaurant with traditional Hungarian food) close by.
