Gödöllő Palace and Horse Show Tour (8 hours)

The equestrian park of the famous Lázár Brothers (word champions in carriage driving) is located outside of Budapest in the picturesque valley called Domonyvölgy.

You will be welcomed according to Hungarian traditions with a special salty cake called ”pogácsa” and fruit brandy, ”pálinka”. We visit the stables where world champion horses are held, the small museum of the Lázár brothers and the mini-zoo with ancient animals. You also have the possibility to take a carriage ride in the surroundings. You can admire the beauty and the outstanding skills of the horses during the equestrian show represented by horsemen in traditional costume. The program includes four-hand driving, pony carriage, wagon drawn by Hungarian grey cattle and Koch-five etc. You even have the opportunity to ride a horse without saddle.

Typical Hungarian three-course lunch (including wine and coffee) is served in the ”csárda” restaurant accompanied by gypsy music.

The main attraction of Gödöllő is the Grassalkovich Palace, better known as the former summer residence of Queen Elisabeth (Sisi). It was constructed by Antal Grassalkovich in the 18th century and finally given to Franz Joseph and Queen Elisabeth as a present from the Hungarian state for they coronation in 1867. In the exhibition rooms beside a few original furniture of Gödöllő Palace you can find many others used by the Royal Couple elsewhere.
