Between heaven and earth - an exclusive (adventure) tour in the dome of Esztergom Basilica

The restoration of the largest religious building in Hungary is now being explored from a truly unique perspective. The adventure tour provides a behind-the-scenes look at the unique architectural work of Belvárosi Építő Kft., where we first ascend in full protective gear in a lift on the side of the basilica. Walking along the scaffolding, which weighs nearly 80 tonnes, the hand-worked gilded stucco and the meticulous work of the restorers can be admired. The tour culminates with a breathtaking panorama of the Danube from a height of almost 100 metres.

At the end of the programme, you can enjoy the unique view from inside the basilica's panorama room with a warm cup of tea in your hands. You can also take a guided tour of the exhibition on the restoration of the basilica, which is enhanced by a time capsule.  

The programme is open to children over 12 years old. Participation is subject to compliance with the safety training.

The tours will start on Saturdays from 12 February: 10.00, 12.30, 15.00

Price of the tour: HUF 8900/person
