The best way to enjoy the Franz Liszt Academy is by attending a performance in the Concert Hall. It's simply magnificent!

Visited this with a group of friends on tour. We were short on time, so confined ourselves to the entrance and outside. You can easily spend twenty minutes or do that way if you don't have time for a tour. The details are exquisite!

The entrance is free, so feel free to just step in and be amazed by its architecture, colors and shapes. Noone will bother you. :)

Did the tour here and was stunned by the beauty of the academy.it is impressive enough outside but the inside was a delight. The tour finished with one of the students performing some short piano pieces. That was the highlight for me!
