Baron Sigmund Schossberger purchased the land, located in the town of Tura, Pest County, from the Esterházy family in 1869, and the castle he had dreamt of, designed by Gyula Bukovics was built there by 1883.
The fabulous castle recalling the style of the Loire Valley castles of France was nationalised after the war. It had functioned as a school until 1973, and its state became dilapidated later on.
Being restored to its original glory, BOTANIQ Castle of Tura opened its doors in 2020. With its 19 rooms, it functions as a hotel as well as an exclusive event venue.
Its park of 10 hectares is ideal for photo shoots, and its SPA services offer the guests a perfect opportunity for recreation and relaxation.
With its separate rooms, palm house, cigar room, salons, restaurant, bar, huge terrace and beautiful garden, the castle is an ideal choice for imposing corporate events, conferences, team building trainings and weddings. It is a truly romantic travel destination thanks to its unique appearance.
The fabulous BOTANIQ Castle is located in Tura, 50 kilometres away from Budapest, between the Great Plain (Alföld) and the Mátra Mountains, in the Galga Valley.
There are a number of local sights around the castle and in the town, such as the Baroque granary, the Roman Catholic church, the Folk Museum, the 8-metre-high Obelisk in honour of the battle of Tura in 1849, the Dora Mill or the Town Hall built in 1902. There are several hiking trails in the area, as well.
