The southern coast awaits with classic pastime activities, including going to the beach and enjoying lángos, hake and ice cream. In the evenings, the Fonyód pier, the centre of Balatonlelle and the lakeshore promenade of Siófok offer a huge variety of entertainment. The Globe Observatory in Balatonboglár, the view from the Kishegy next to Balatonlelle, the József Attila Memorial Museum, the Shipping History of Balaton and Lookout Tower Visitor Centre and the updated centre of Siófok are all worth a visit.
The more spectacular but steeper paths of the northern lakeshore await with stunning attractions, including Szigliget Castle, the Benedictine Abbey of Tihany, the lavender fields, the Inner Lake and the hermitage, Szent György Hill’s Basalt Organs, Hegyestű, the Africa Museum of Balatonederics, the Szentbékkálla Sea of Stones or the magnificent view from the high shore of Balatonakarattya. It goes without saying that the delicious wines of Badacsony and the characteristic food of Balaton are also available to enjoy.
