The enteriour-like exhibition also gives home for renaissance suppers
In the 16-17th century the kitchen was situated beside the Southwest corner pillar of the castle. Its fireplace was a closed stove standing between the Southern castle wall and the two pillars. This was used in the time of the Windishgraetz family and - up to 1959 - as a kitchen for the Work Institute. Its rebuilding took place between 1994 and 1996. At the renovation of the kitchen it was important to reinforce the different parts of the stove. continue
The gothic stone store was opened in 1999 in the basement of the Eastern wing of the Palace. In the Windischgraetz era the stable was found in this wing. Later it was used as an ethnographic exhibition space, under the name of Erdélyi János hall. The restoring of the square held by pillars is connected to the name of Mihály Détshy. He designed the stairs leading to the entrance. continue
