Sümeg The Essential
Whichever road you take to Sümeg, the castle, standing on a promontory, will be the first thing to come into view. It was built in the 13C and strengthened over the years. There are stunning views of the extinct volcanoes of Tapolca and the Bakony mountains on your way up. Furniture, weapons and armour are on display inside the castle tower. The parish church in the village has been nicknamed the "Rococo Sistine Chapel" because of its frescoes by Franz Anton Maulbertsch.
