If you are anywhere in the vicinity, a visit to the Herend factory and museum is a must, even if fine porcelain is not your cup of tea. It's a fascinating place, one where you can get up close to the artisians as they hand paint some of the exquisite items made on the site. Herend Porcelain is known, and... 更多
This is a stop on my way to lake Balaton , I like it because I personally enjoy ceramic. It's a manufacture create a lot beautiful dining set for the royal , they even did for the gift from Hungry to prince William and Kate which is awesome.
Ever wondered how porcelain is made? Here you can see it. The short intro movie is rather a surreal ad, but never mind. As you go on, each phase of the porcelain making process is shown by the workers of the Herend Porcelain Manufacture. When they are not doing this show, the workers produce those amazing pieces sold at the... 更多
Glamorous china. It was interesting to see how the porcelain is produced, and painted. Beautiful museum for a cheap price. At the end you are offered a good caffee from Herend's china cups.

As an American I had not heard of Herend before travelling to Hungary but I'm glad we stopped and checked out the factory. The tour was well done, with a movie and working examples of the stages of production - forming, painting, etc. The guide ( and everyone else ) spoke very good English. The museum was nice and it... 更多
For the price was payed we had an amazing tour around the factory started with a 3D movie then walk around to show us step by step, how Herend porcelains are made. Those highly professional people in the processing and that such a detail oriented, punctual, particular and long hand work with every china made them very special and can... 更多
I admit I am a lover of Hungary, having lived there for 6 years, but a visit to the Herend porcelain factory is really a must do if you are in Hungary. The tour itself is fascinating and the museum equally inspiring - the staff are helpful and friendly but most of all very knowledgable. The cafe is a real... 更多
We really enjoyed our day trip to the Herend factory. The tour through the process of making china was excellent and of course the shopping was fun! The museum is also well worth your time to see the history of porcelain in Hungary. Make sure you stop in the cafe for a coffee or tea - served on Herend china.
As many reviewers have noted, this is a very worthwhile stop in the Lake Balaton area and is a nice change of pace from swimming and water sports. It is a little bit hard to find in that there is a new highway from Veszprem and I think maybe all of the exit signs are not up yet. We did... 更多
