The Lillafüred Quarter is a popular spot among locals for excursions. Who hasn’t seen breathtaking photos of the largest waterfall in Hungary, the Neo-Renaissance castle and the Hanging Gardens on the shores of Lake Hámori, the Anna Limestone Cave, which is unique in Europe, or the miniature railways with the most beautiful scenery along the tracks in Hungary? It is an unmissable experience to hike up to the “Viewpoint of the Year” and enjoy the views of Lillafüred and Hotel Palota. The hotel building, reminiscent of the hunting lodges of the era of King Matthias (15th century), opened its doors to the public in June 1930. Nowadays, it is a popular choice for lovebirds seeking a romantic getaway, the young at heart longing for nostalgia, couples looking for recreation and intimacy, as well as families and groups of friends looking for active leisure. The fireplace in the lounge, the terraces offering fabulous views, the stained-glass windows, and the rooms in the tower all guarantee a unique atmosphere during your stay.

TIPS: After an invigorating excursion, it is a pleasant feeling to enjoy delicious grilled dishes, while admiring the surrounding forest and the Bükk Mountains from the terrace of Hotel Palota. Take a piece of Lillafüred home with you by buying a book featuring old photos of the area. Inquire at the Reception about special discount for our guests.
