Andrássy Palace

Tiszadob, Hungary

Hungarian aristocratic family, Andrassy, has been known for its lavish lifestyle. The Andrassy Palace was built in the second half of the 19th century. With multiple towers, and neo-gothic, romantic style, it resembles the French castles in the valley of the Loire. Behind the building, a well-kept English park pleases the eye, hosting concerts during the first half of August annually. The musical series are named Piano Celebration in the East. The castle itself now serves as a children's home.

The Palace looks great from the outside, it's a shame we couldn't get inside. The place is open between 10:00-18:00 and the ticket hall closes at 17:30 according to their website. However the last guided tour departs at 16:30 and it is not allowed to explore the castle alone. We missed this deadline by 3 minutes so we were not let in despite the fact that the place was still open for another 90 minutes and they had the manpower to show us the Palace. Unfriendly people and badly managed place,so be prepared...

Petersberg Citadel

The Petersberg Citadel is one of the largest extant early-modern citadels in Europe and covers the whole north-western part of the Erfurt city centre. It was built after 1665 on Petersberg hill and was in military use until 1963. It dates from a time when Erfurt was ruled by the Electors of Mainz and is a unique example of the European style of fortress construction. Beneath the citadel is an underground maze of passageways that can be visited on guided tours organised by Erfurt Tourist Office.

The citadel was originally built on the site of a medieval Benedictine Monastery and the earliest parts of the complex date from the 12th century. Erfurt has also been ruled by Sweden, Prussia, Napoleon, the German Empire, the Nazis, and post-World War II Soviet occupying forces, and it was part of the German Democratic Republic (East Germany). All of these regimes used Petersberg Citadel and had an influence on its development. The baroque fortress was in military use until 1963. Since German reunification in 1990, the citadel has undergone significant restoration and it is now open to the public as a historic site.
