Visitors can get an insight to the everyday life of the Rákóczi era.
The most famous family member was Franz Rákóczi II, a Hungarian lord and hero of the independence. He led an anti-Habsburg war, with the famous motto: "Cum Deo pro patria et libertate!" (With God, for our homeland and our liberty!).
Throughout Hungary he is a symbol of pure-hearted and righteous commitment to liberty.
A museum inside the castle tells the history of the family and the Rákóczi Freedom Fight. There are also exhibitions on wine cultivation in the Hegyalja region and local ethnography.
