A real romantic atmosphere is created due to the joint effect of the irregular layout, the big, gothic windows, the slender towers, the buttresses and battlements of the castle. Here we find white cypress, gingko, maple and plane trees in the park.
Amongst the lime trees there were Indian bean trees and horse-chestnut trees planted. In the middle of the park we can find a small pond and an island with large shady trees and an open-air stage where three times every summer the tunes of Beethoven can be heard commemorating the fact that this never-fading composer visited many times in the first decades of the 19th century. Beethoven was mainly attracted to this place by his friendship with the Bruszvik family, or to be more precise with the female members of the family. As a token of his friendship many of his pieces – including the Appassionata sonata – were dedicated to the family. The magic of the park and the music played here still has an undiminishing popularity. Hungary’s only Beethoven Memorial Museum created in the castle presents Beethoven’s correspondence with the female members of the Brunszvik family and also documents connected to the lives of the artist and the family. Here we find a lock of the artist’s hair, his bust and portrait and we can also learn about his pieces connected to Hungary and about his other Hungarian connections.
