Museum sights in Herend
- Sort by:
If you have the time, take a side-trip to Herend (population 3375), 13km west of Veszprém, where a porcelain factory has been producing Hungary’s finest hand-painted chinaware for 170 years. The Porcelánium is a museum displaying the most prized pieces of the rich Herend collection as well as a minifactory where you can witness first-hand how lumps of clay become exquisite porcelain. Guided tours in four languages, including English, leave every 15 minutes. There’s a short film tracing the history of Herend porcelain and a shop selling both antique and new Herend pieces.
