Apponyi Library



The beautiful environment of an English-style park houses the former family home of the noble Apponyi family. Currently the renovated large Renaissance manor house is known far and wide as a luxury hotel with high quality services. History lovers would certainly be remiss not to visit its north wing, which after decades has seen the return of the famed Apponyi library with nearly 17,300 volumes of rare and precious books. The Apponyi library houses many famous works including those by Roman popes, the private correspondence of French kings, Cardinals Richelieu and Mazarina, Joan of Arc, all of Dumas's novels and works of Goethe, Schiller, Kant, Fichte, Galileo, Newton and others.
