Lavender, fine wines and culture in Pannonhalma

Combine history, wine-tasting and gourmet dining with the pleasure of sightseeing of Pannonhalma and Győr!

This is a full-day tour to the western part of Hungary, that includes visiting of the 1000 years old Benedictine Abbey of Pannonhalma, a fine wine-tasting of the excellent Abbey Winery, a delicious gourmet lunch in an enchanting restaurant and a short stop in Győr.

Your personal guide will pick you up from your hotel in the morning. After one and half hours drive you arrive in Pannonhalma. The oldest abbey of the country, that is part of the UNESCO World Heritage sites, is well worth a visit. The history of the Abbey – built on the holy mount of the Roman province of Pannonia by Benedictine monks – is as old as Hungary’s history itself.

You will have the opportunity to take a professional guided tour in the Archabbey. Your local guide will show you the basilica, the crypt, cloister and library with a great number of book curiosities.

Do not miss visiting the beautiful botanical and herbal garden of the abbey!

Pannonhalma is one of the smallest wine regions of the country with a very long wine-making tradition.

During a guided tour of the Abbey Winery you can learn about the history of the Benedictine wine culture, you can see the new buliding complex and get acquainted with the technological processes of wine making and you can taste the wines, of course.

From the wine-tasting terrace you can enjoy a wonderful view of the monastery, the lavender plantations and the countryside.

In the first class restaurant of the Abbey you can enjoy quality foods and drinks in a fascinating atmosphere! The huge glass wall of the restaurant gives you a breathtaking view to the monastery!

After lunch your guide will drive you to the most important city of northwest Hungary.

Győr is lying on the meeting point of the rivers Moson-Danube, Rába and Rábca. Take a short walk on the streets of the beautifully restored houses of the Old Town and have a coffee in an atmospharic Café of the main square.

After the full day experience you will return to Budapest.
