Intoxicating Eger. Known for producing Hungary's best red wines, including the famous Bull's Blood, Eger's history is also intoxicating.

Winding medieval streets, beautiful baroque architecture, and a castle on the hill hovering over a picturesque square: that's Eger. Eger makes for an ideal one or two-night side trip. It's less than a two-hour drive from Budapest through a charming countryside covered in vineyards. Wine lovers say Eger, with its 10,000 acres of vineyards, resembles Burgundy. Also well known for its thermal baths built in the 1600s, Eger is a great spot to relax during your travels. Enjoy the spa, gourmet Hungarian food and hearty red wines.

Not to be missed on any trip to Eger is a visit to the "Valley of the Beautiful Women." A 20-minute walk from the center you will find several small wine tasting cellars carved into a hillside. They serve affordable wines in a festive atmosphere often complete with Roma music. The center of Eger's life is the main square, Dobo Ter. It's the site of various wine and music festivals. The pride of Eger is the castle, famous for being the site in 1522 where the locals fought off a Turkish invasion despite being outnumbered 20 to 1 (naturally, popular legend claims 80 to 1).

Things to do in Eger

Although we do not currently offer any excursions for your travels to Eger, no trip is complete without a visit to the Valley of the Beautiful Women. Eger is Hungary's most famous wine town and a visit to the valley with its numerous wine caves carved into the rocky hillside is certainly a unique experience. Eger's charming town center should not be missed, complete with the Eger castle on the hill and its famous Dobo square. This compact historical area can be easily seen on foot but you will have to take a cheap taxi ride out to the Valley, which is well worth the money.
