ESTERHÁZY PALACE, TATA - Nemzeti Örökségvédelmi Fejlesztési Nonprofit Kft. | NÖF

Tata, Esterházy-kastély

The late baroque palace was built according to the design of Jakab Fellner in 1765-1780. Its interiors can be visited alone or with a guide. The palace is surrounded by a sentimental garden and an English-style park. Esterházy Castle is located next to Tata Bastion and Platán, on the shores of Old Lake in a picturesque environment, and with its baroque stlye romantic milieu it is a one-of-a-kind wedding location.



The classicising late Baroque Esterházy Palace on the shores of Lake Öreg in Tata, next to the palace, has provided home to several significant diplomatic events while in the possession of the comital Esterházy family. This mentality may still offer a high priority to the events held in the protected building. Owing to the developments, the main building, the forecourt and the gardens of the palace have become a high-quality event venue. The event space can be separated from the palace exhibition. The Great Salon on the ground floor is suitable for holding smaller events. Outdoor venues can be covered with a tent on request, thus becoming suitable for larger events, performances, corporate events, chamber music concerts, family events, wedding ceremonies, or exclusive events of international significance. The beautified exterior and interior of the palace, having undergone period restoration, may also be the perfect venue for filming and thematic photography.

Renovated between 2018 and 2020, all the rooms of the Esterházy Palace, which have been completely restored as a monument, await visitors. Its furnished rooms and exhibition spaces offer a unified experience, inviting those interested in taking a lavish behind-the-scenes time journey through the history of the palace, the owner family and the era.


Following the program, visitors may enjoy some coffee in the café of the palace. For the Esterházy family, Tata meant the comfort of rural life, relaxation and recreation.


Hunts, hospitality, sophisticated dinners, entertainment and drinking coffee characterised the days spent here. The Esterházys were famous for their refined taste, which applied to the field of gastronomy as well. The elegant, gourmet taste was also present in their everyday lives: they drank Viennese-style coffee specialties, they had elaborate cakes made by their confectioners, crowned with the great creations of their own French champagne master.


The Salon Café established in the palace is meant to evoke this atmosphere – a slice and a drop of the milieu that surrounded the residents and guests of the palace. The elegant café, which features both modern and traditional elements, is open to those entering the palace without a ticket as well.
