Trophy Exhibition

Members of the Festetics family had a reputation of trophy collectors – the western corridor of the castle was adorned with trophies, in the billiard room were antlers.
The West-Balaton area was always rich in wild game. And hunting was a favourite pastime of  noblemen, aristocrats and politicians in every age.

The collection of the castle was destroyed after the Second World War. Only the antlers of a deer killed in 1883 in Somogy-county could be bought back – this piece is now on display in the exhibition. Among the 500 trophies can be found several world records.

Historical Model Railway Exhibition

The historical model railway is located in the attic of the new museum building next to the Festetics castle. The facility with its 508.6 square meter surface area, and a total of 2.5 kilometers of track is among the largest in Europe (next to Miniature Wonderland in Hamburg, and the Loxx miniature worlds in Berlin).

The trains rattle between mountains and hills, lakes and rivers and about 20 stations. The park is divided into three parts – all of them provide a section of the Southern Railways from the kuk Time up in the 60’s 70’s is of the past century – in Hungary, Austria and Germany. The  detailed built locomotives (60-70 units) and the trains are controlled by three computers, and connected by a 30 km long cable network.

The beautifully designed facility – with real buildings from the different districts of Keszthely the Christmas market in Nuremberg, people waiting at the railway stations – leaves a deep impression.
Keszthely, as one of the Southern Railway Station is also shown here, along with the other stations.
The section in Germany with Nuremberg and Bad Schandau is located in the middle of the room. The Nuremberg train station with the 25 tracks is the largest station of the plant.
