Our roll-up exhibition on the Life and Heritage of Otto von Habsburg opened in Eger on 19 May 2023 and will be on display in the renovated Archbishop’s Palace and Visitor Centre until the end of September.


Archbishop’s Palace and Visitor Centre






The Otto von Habsburg Foundation launched the travelling exhibition “Life and Heritage” in The Royal Palace of Gödöllő in January 2020. Our roll-up display, consisting of nine panels, aims to present the career and political legacy of the former heir to the throne and European statesman in the Hungarian municipalities that have chosen Otto von Habsburg as their honorary citizen or have close ties with him.

The current stop of our travelling exhibition is unique in several aspects: among the places that have awarded our namesake the title of honorary citizen, we have so far visited settlements with a smaller population, but this time we were invited to the seat of a county, into the centre of an archdiocese. Otto von Habsburg and his wife, Princess Regina, returned several times to the city close to their hearts, and, as the Archduke often mentioned both in interviews and in his correspondence preserved in the holdings of our Foundation, his spouse particularly fell in love with Eger.
