Top Attractions in Western Transdanubia
What travelers are saying
- We lived nearby during our stay here at Heviz. The benefits of church:
-as you are walking uphill in the heat after a tiring bathing at Heviz lake and even more exhausting huge lunch, the sight of blue towers gives you some hope
- the bells are ringing every 15 minutes, so you know exactly what time it is
- sometimes passing by you see wedding ceremonies that make you either regret your life choices or thanking God for them (depends)

- I don' t think I need to write just another review about a place that is awash with visitors. It is superb and very well preserved, but for me, the library was everything. I would have loved to stay there forever. My kind of Heaven. Lock me there and throw away the key ☺️.Written July 30, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- You can enter anytime. There is limited windows. There is a staircase inside so you can look down on the aisle. Outside you have to find off road parking especially as there is a narrow road. The view is amazing. Just visit it. There are excellent places to eat nearby especially on the lower road.Written June 9, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This park was near the place we stayed in and we liked it a lot! The fawn statue was very cute! And the dog statue was nice as well. Also there's a special track for walking barefoot, playground, botanical garden and even a bridge to hang ribbons with written wishes. Very beautiful.Written August 16, 2020
- Lots of fine restaurants, great view, a nice place for a walk. Also worth to visit the 800 year little chapel. The tourist city train and the small bus go there.Written August 29, 2021
- In the middle of the pedestrian zone, You can visit this interesting small museum. You can learn a lot about the bath historie of the city. The exhibition is small, but on the other hand it is free of charge.Written February 10, 2020
- I thoroughly enjoyed both the palace and the model train museum.
In the palace itself there are original or reconstructed rooms showing the aristocratic lifestyle of the 18th and 19th centuries. The most valuable part of the palace is Hungary’s sole intact aristocratic private library, which looks amazing.
The building of the Coach Museum used to be the stable and coach house of the central Festetics estate. Now it contains a fine collection of more than 50 coaches, carriages and sleighs from the golden age of coach and carriage manufacture. Some objects are really unique and the collection, in general, is one of the most diverse of its kind.
After a short leisurely walk across the well-kept park, you will see the Hunting museum, which also houses one of Europe’s largest model railway exhibitions.
75 trains run according to timetable on 2700 meters of tracks surrounded by 1800 buildings. The authentic trains are made up of engines, passenger cars and freight wagons of the 19th and 20th centuries. The rail network of the stations is based on aerial photos and original plans.
A small cafe at the palace is quite expensive, but worth popping in because of the peculiar collection of wall clocks.
The only negative thing which should be mentioned is the condition in which the birds are kept in the palm house. The cages have not been cleaned for ages and there was no fresh water at the time of our visit.Written March 25, 2019
- Nice little Park with a Lake, an Outdoor Gym and a Labyrinth.
There is also a small playground for children a small walk through a Wood.Written May 17, 2018
- The best you can do is a pleasant walk in this wonderful park. Nature enchants you in every single moment!Written February 18, 2022
- Aquacity is a nice waterpark with many slides and pools. There's plenty of space to lie in the sun or in the shadow. The restaurants are ok and you can get coffee, drinks, hot dogs, pizza, langos, ice cream and much more.
- Pools and fun slides for every age
- Everything's quite clean
- 4 of the 11 major slides were out of order (presumable for quite a while). There was no information on that on the website. The price also didn't reflect that.
- Swimrings (necessary for one slide) cost an extra fee (~1€ each). When 3 hours are over, one has to pay about 2.5€. It's not much, but an unnecessary and annoying hassle.Written July 27, 2022
- In 1925 when a local vineyard owner was plowing its field found a brick grave and in it an intact skeleton. The grave is in Hévíz Egregy district, close to the beginning of Dombföldi Street, leading up to Egregy vineyards. In the grave at the right shoulder of the skeleton was a bronze fibula, also a belt buckle, an iron knife, and other small items. The rumor started to talk about gold coins and military honors as well. Now only the soldier would be able to tell what else did he has.
The grave is cut in a steep wall and the front of it open, covered by glass. Seen this unfortunate fellow who probably had scoliosis, I feel uncomfortable. To put someone on display, who was already resting, is indecent. Or at least these are my feelings. Before I left, I wished him “requiescat in pace.”Written February 19, 2017
- We could not go on the lake by boat because of the weather but my kid enjoyed the great playground. View was very nice too.Written May 12, 2019
