Post Conference tour – “Sissi tour”

Come with us to visit the largest Baroque Palace of Hungary in Gödöllő! After a 30-minute drive from Budapest we will arrive at the former summer residence of Queen Elisabeth, affectionately known as Sisi, and Francis Joseph, the Habsburg Emperor and Hungarian king from 1867 to 1916.

This interior visit and the tour through the château’s gardens will give you a glimpse of the life as a royal during the Austro-Hungarian Empire. With the help of our guide, you will become acquainted with the secrets, hidden doors, bedrooms and lovers of the royal couple.

Next, we will drive to Hollókő, a gorgeous village North-East of Budapest and a UNESCO world heritage site, where you will be welcomed with Hungarian pogácsa and the national drink, pálinka.

While walking in the village, you will find strings of traditional, white-washed Palóc houses with verandas, wooden handrails and hipped roofs, located on narrow cobbled streets. Some are home to handcraft workshops, while others are museums and exhibition houses where you will have the opportunity to look around and shop for handcrafts.

The all day tour also includes a nice lunch with a tasty glass of wine.

A bus transfer will be provided for the programme.
