Culinary Delights in the Hungarian Countryside

Feast on Hungarian specialties prepared by a talented local chef — plus, get treated to wine tastings at a beautiful castle-estate set within the vineyards of rural Hungary.

About Your Trip

South of Budapest are the gorgeous rolling hills and vineyards of Simontornya, the perfect place to indulge your senses — and your appetite! On this fun and fascinating DreamTrip, you’ll savor traditional cuisine and refine your culinary skills with lessons from an expert chef. But first, spend some time exploring the hotel’s vineyard, and sampling local wines as you gaze out over the verdant countryside from the Panorama Wine Terrace — you’ll even get a taste of palinka, a Hungarian fruit brandy that’s made from fruit grown in the hotel gardens. Then, head down to the centuries-old wine cellar to learn all about the region’s traditional winemaking process. You’ll cap off your outing with a celebratory dinner — watch a professional chef prepare a special meal right before your eyes as DJ music sets a festive mood.

What we love:

• The architecture of Fried Castle Hotel and Restaurant is Art Nouveau, and its extensive gardens were designed in a classic French style.
• Older generations of Hungarians firmly believe that palinka is the medicine for every ailment.
• The hotel restaurant offers traditional Hungarian dishes alongside international specialties.
• To maximize your enjoyment, download the DreamTrips™ app to access DreamTrips Local — then earn points on dining, entertainment, spa experiences & more at select spots recommended by DreamTrippers just like you!


This trip will close by October 16.

Destination

The region of Simontornya, Hungary, is lush with rolling hillsides, beautiful mountainside estates and wildlife including deer, rabbits and ducks. Simontornya — translated as Simon’s Tower — began in the 1200s with the construction of a single tower in the swamps of the Sio river. Over time, the tower underwent multiple renovations and additions as the village expanded, including a Gothic wing, Renaissance enhancements and military upgrades when Turks took over the building. The people around Simontornya Castle formed a small Hungarian community of fewer than 5,000 people. During World War II, Simontornya was occupied by the Germans, soon followed by the Russians. Today, the town stands proudly in Tolna County.
