Whichever road you take to Sümeg, the castle, standing on a promontory, will be the first sight 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 as you head up to the castle. Furniture, weapons and armour are on display inside the castle tower. In the village, the parish church is decorated with frescoes by Franz Anton Maulbertsch.
