Full description
It is not just by chance that the most famous rulers of the 19th and 20th century, such as Queen Victoria, Hungarian King Franz Joseph and his wife Queen Elisabeth, Alexander von Humboldt, Nikolas II of Russia, and Lady Diana, all fell in love with Herend porcelains. One of the most famous and favored patterns still in was named after Queen Victoria, and a Herend porcelain tableware set decorated with the 'new Victoria pattern' was given by the Hungarian Government as a gift to Kate and William's wedding,

The three main attractions in Herend are the Porcelain Museum, the Mini Manufactory and the Coffee and Porcelain Shop. At the Herend Mini Manufactory, one can see the fascinating process of how the heavy mass of kaolin clay becomes fragile porcelain, and how the craftsmen shape, decorate and paint the material. You can follow step by step the birth of the beautiful masterpieces of Herend Porcelain. The tour in the Mini Manufactory starts with an interesting short movie about the story of the Herend factory from 1826 to the present day.

After the Mini Manufactory, you can visit the Herend Porcelain Museum, where you will receive an overall picture about the colorful product range of Herend porcelain over the last 180 years. The Manufactory has a capacity of producing more then 16,000 various forms, around 4,000 patterns and their free variation. This means it is equivalent of 64 million various products. Finish your tour in the shop, delivery with insurance is available worldwide, and take a good coffee or tea, of course from a Herend porcelain cup.
