the ESTERHÁZY - CASTLE
and the Platán buildings
At the beginning of the 1760s, Miklós Esterházy comissioned the young Jakab Fellner to develop a plan to raise a new, grandiose castle on the site of the Sigismund castle built in the 14th century. Due to the high costs and the death of the count his successor, József II. Esterházy rejected the realization of the plan developed in more variants, and ordered the building of a smaller and more modest estate center.
The lordship of Tata –the town and the neighbouring villages degraded under the yoke of the Turks –was purchased by János Esterházy in 1727. The city, by the beginning of the 19th century, became the centre of the lordship and one of the most beautiful town of the county, rich in baroque-style buildings, owing to to the work of the settlers, monks, famous architects and engineers invited to Tata by the count’s family.
We offer our room, that summons the athmosphere of the baroque castles, to those, who would like to experience some historical athmosphere. It has its own wood burning fireplace, which we can fire up upon our guests’request. Our only room that is equipped with a bathtube and authentic furniture in the appropiate style.
THE ”ROOM OF WINDOWS”
Our double room in the attic got its name for a reason. Through its windows you can have a picturesque view of the castle and its moat.
