In an exclusive guided tour, visit the new gem of Budapest, the Hungarian House of Music, the jaw-dropping masterpiece by Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto that opened its gates less than two months ago. You can read more about this breath-takingly innovative and beautiful building here.

"Pannonhalma is the smallest Hungarian wine region. It has a unique place in Hungarian wine culture and Hungarian history because of the Benedictine Abbey which stands proudly on the top of the region’s tallest hill. About a thousand years ago, when the foundations of Hungary were laid down, the Benedictine monks sensed that something magical was going on here and founded the monastery. Ever since then they have been focusing on higher education, wine growing, maintaining their renowned arboretum, growing herbs, making medicinal oils, brewing beer, and compiling their world famous library.

The region is not much bigger than 600 hectares, and it has a typical continental climate: hot summers, cool springs and falls, and cold winters. The region produces almost exclusively white wine, with a few very good exceptions, such as Pinot Noir, Kékfrankos, and Merlot. These days the Abbey is a professionally-run winery, and the largest in the region with award-winning wines." To find our more, click here.
