Carriage Museum

Distance from the hotel: about 4km.

The barn house next to Festetics Castle is home to one of Europe's most important carriage and sleigh collections.

The exhibition featuring more than 60 vehicles - carriages, sleighs, tanks, tilburies, automobiles - can be visited all year round, perfect program for families as well.

We can familiarize with the former equestrian life of the Castle through contemporary photographs. The exhibition material based on original photos gives an insight into the former equestrian life of the Castle. Through this we can see how horses and carriages played an important role in the life of the era. In a separate room, carriage equipment, rigs from different eras, closely related to the subject and equestrian equipment are on display: saddles, bridles, riding sticks.
