Highlights of Esterházy Palace

This unique tour presents important art-historical exhibits from the collection and an impression of the lavish life and festivities at the princely court.

The permanent Highlights exhibition presents exquisite objects from the Esterhazy collection and offers glimpses of how the princes lived and celebrated.

Major attractions include the Esterházy dynasty’s silverware (the world’s largest surviving Empire silver service produced by Würth in Vienna) and the last known console table from the workshops of Giuseppe Briati in Venice.

The exhibition also offers fascinating insights into how the palace was built. In some places the historic walls and floors have been uncovered, revealing many layers of history and a detailed glimpse of the architecture through 300 years.
