Hungary is very famous for porcelain production, one of the greatest manufacturers is Herend. The factory has been producing porcelain for almost 200 years. The factory is based in the little village of Herend, near Veszprém, about 1 hour 30 minutes drive from Budapest.
Herend porcelain has won several prizes at different expos and exhibitions. After a famous Herend set had been presented at the London World Expo in 1851 Queen Victoria ordered a dinner set, the pattern got named in her honour “Viktória”.
We’ll start exploring local porcelain heritage in the “Mini-Manufactory”, that displays the porcelain making in a series of rooms; visitors are shown the preparation of plaster casts, shaping, piercing, flower making and the various painting techniques. After the visit you’ll be invited for a coffee or tea served in Herend porcelain. We’ll also include the visit of the Herend museum, full of beautiful pieces of art and design. You’ll have some time to spend in the local Herend store, which is the largest in Hungary.
