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 DreamBreak, 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.
