Out of Town: Daytrip Sopron and Esterhazy Castle Part 1

Out Of ToWn

At the foot of the Lővér Hills and only a couple of kilometres from Lake Neusiedl and about one driving hour from Vienna (60km), you will arrive in Sopron, one of the most charming medieval cities in Hungary on the Austrian border.

Gothic and early baroque architecture, the backstreets and courtyards of the Inner Town, a daytrip like stepping back in time.

The weather was perfect for a walk and we strolled through the small cobble stone streets.

Finding a great little grocery store with regional products …

… and visiting the post office, which took my breath away with all the amazing details.

With all the little treasures you could find, when having an eye for details, I was happy that I took the time to choose the matching scarf for that Daytrip:

l‘ Imprimeur Fou was perfect for that day. The silk-cotton carré with the different prints from various designs is exactly the thing you would compare with Sopron, if it was a Hermès scarf.

From this pitoresque town it is one a few kilometers until you reach the summer residence and hunting lodge ‚Esterháza Castle Fertöd‘ completed in 1766.

    1. So I hope that you enjoy Vienna as much as I like to visit Hungary 🙂 Viktoria. Have a wonderful late fall in Vienna and have some Punsch!


    1. I can highly recommend a daytrip to Sopron during the week, when the streets are not crowded from weekend tourists. Such a beautiful place.
