Based on the plans of the prominent Hungarian architect Miklós Ybl, the Wenckheim residence was built in the German neo-renaissance style, between 1875 and 1879 in Szabadkígyós, southeast of Hungary. As the residence of one of the wealthiest 19th century landlords, Frigyes Wenckheim, and his wife Krisztina Wenckheim, the building was the most splendid and modern palace of the age, furnished with state-of-the-art technical equipment. At one time, the exterior of the building was illuminated by gas lighting that was supplied from the "gas house". The palace's large English garden was created at the same time as the residence. A French baroque garden was designed in front of the main façade, while an English landscape garden was created farther from the building. The park also features a swimming pool, a tennis court and a runway for sports aircraft.
