50 Minute Self-Guided Tour of Esterházy Gallery of Ancestors
The tour of the Gallery of Ancestors culminates in the room of silver furniture. Here one can see unique Baroque silver furniture from the Esterházy family Treasure Chamber. The most precious highlight is the opulent silver table by David Schwestermüller, a true masterpiece, both in material and craftsmanship.
The visit lasts about 50 minutes and you can experience it without any guide.
