Event space - Dég Festetics Mansion

Event space

Dég Festetics Mansion is the earliest neoclassical residence in Hungary. Antal Festetics was the commissioner of construction of both the mansion and the park. Construction began in 1802, and the Festetics family, who were interested in botany, created the largest English park in Hungary. Given that both were created by Mihály Pollack, it is no coincidence that the main building, with its two porticoes, is reminiscent of the National Museum in Budapest.

The mansion is surrounded by the largest English landscape garden in Hungary, which is comparable in size to Central Park in New York and has rare plants and ancient trees. A long white bridge connects to the red-brick Hollandi (Dutch) House, which was constructed in 1891 in the breathtaking German Lowland style, on the park’s lake island.

Corporate events, wedding ceremonies, and other family gatherings can be hosted in the mansion’s spectacular ceremonial hall. The terraced café is a suitable location for parties, receptions, and even modest gala dinners. During a photo or film shoot, unique images can be taken in both the mansion and the park.

The mansion, surrounding park, and the fact that it is a mere one-hour drive from Budapest, make the location ideal for indoor or outdoor private parties and corporate events.
