Top unique attractions near us

Badacsony mountain - 45 minutes from us
Badacsony towers over Lake Balaton, a volcanic hill popular with hikers – but it’s also so much more than that: it’s the home of excellent vineyards and offers outstanding culinary delights. Not to mention, of course, the view from the top.

Csobánc Castle - Gyulakeszi - 55 minutes from us atop Csobánc hill once stood a castle of historic importance during the 1700s. Now there are only ruins, but the area has a special atmosphere, and a view that’s worth the climb.

Festetics Palace - Keszthely - 25 minutes from us A trip to the most visited palace in the country is also a trip back in time. From a beautiful library to multiple exhibitions, this Baroque landmark in Keszthely offers attractions that will keep you occupied throughout a whole day.

Our number #1 favourite: Lenti - 1 hour from us
This is the farthest thermal bath from us, but why not, this is our favourite.  There is some kind of magic with its water...  Perfect relaxation can be reached here, your energy leveles will be filled up again. Directions here  

Thermal bath and the greates water fun park in the region, with uncountable amount of water slides! :)  Fun for the whole family! Directions here


Our #1 favourite: Balatonfenyves beach
Exceptional panorama, and the best beach gastro experience Balaton can offer at a plcae called Konyhám.  Entry is free of charge.  With one of the best Balaton panoramas in front of you you can walk about 800 m in shallow water, it can be fun to sit down in "the middle" of the lake.  After this great swiming water begins, with larger heights.  You can event rent an electric speedboat with skipper to go to Badacsony mountain, accross the lake.  Don't leave without trying the confit pig plate at Konyhám! Directions here  

The entertaining one: Gyenesdiás Beach of Diás
Some people don’t leave the house without three different board games, or at least with a card game in their beach bags, because who knows when will the feared Boredom make an appearance. The beach of Diás is for these kind of people – you don’t have to be prepared with minigolf, petanque, outdoor chess, Nine Men's Morris, and many more entertaining elements at your disposal. It’s a great choice for those who have children: the parents can calmly sunbathe while the kids busy themselves with the many options the beach has.  If you come here don't forget to check the exceptional BBQ stand at the market and the ice cream close to it. Directions here

The sporty one: Vonyarcvashegy, Lidó Beach  
If you’re crazy about sports, but kicking some promotional ball around in knee-deep water isn't your thing, then you might want to check out Lidó beach in Vonyarcvashegy. They have a surf school, a water ski track, a beach volleyball field, and you can even play handball. What could be better than working at that beach body right there on the beach? While the adults are getting active, the kids can spend time at the play house where the animators will make sure they’re having a lot of fun. Directions here  

The biker one: Balatonberény, Municipal Beach
Biking around Lake Balaton (despite the varying quality of the trails) is almost like the El Camino of Hungary, a pilgrimage recommended for everyone to do at least once – you can spot many teams riding around the lake all summer long in their uniform spandex shorts even when the day is scorching hot. When it’s really very warm, it’s nice to splash in the cool water before (or after) starting on the south shore trails, and the beach of Balatonberény is ideal for this. It has great bike racks, left luggage facilities big enough for larger bags (which can come in handy during hikes), plus the entry fee includes a bottle of mineral water, which can be a life-saver after a tougher session. Directions here  

The one with the view: Fonyód, Panoráma Beach
Many people say that the only good thing about the south shore is that you can see the north shore from there. We don’t agree with that, but still, it’s true that you can admire the entire Badacsony from there. Fonyód has a first-class view of the hill, plus you can see all the other buttes while swimming around. The beach also has a sandy section now, and what’s more, it has three smaller sunbathing islands as well: lounging on these feels like we’re in Hawaii, watching the volcano of one island from the other – however, here they have weeping willows instead of palm trees. Directions here  

The free giant: Platán, Balatonboglár
The south shore has some beaches that still don’t have an entry fee, although the quality of these varies. The huge Platán of Balatonboglár stands out of the free ones – it’s more than 9 hectares large, and is shaded by the canopy of plane trees (the beach was also named after these). Everyone can find something to do on such a huge beach: there are playgrounds, buffets, and sport fields as well, and you don’t have to fight that much for a shady spot here. Directions here
