Keszthely : Michelin's recommendations
It was here that the Festetics family, owners of many estates around Keszthely from 1739, founded Georgikon, Europe’s first agricultural college, which existed until 1848. The terrace of Festetics Castle enjoys a beautiful view of the north and south banks of Lake Balaton. Inside the castle, the Helikon Library, which holds 52,000 books, is well worth a visit. In town, the Georgikon Museum is devoted to the history of the agriculture college, to wine-growing and working the land.
