Balaton & Herend
Tour Details

Discover tranquil Lake Balaton and its beautiful surroundings with a personal guide on a full-day tour from Budapest. Traveling by comfortable car or minibus, you will stop at the world-famous porcelain factory at Herend and visit the Tihany Peninsula.

Balaton-named as „the Hungarian sea”-is the largest freshwater lake in Central Europe (78km long). Besides Budapest it is the most visited tourist area of Hungary.

First we travel to Herend, where we visit the largest hand-painted Porcelain Manufactury of the world and become acquainted with its history and specialities in the performance of a local guide.

After that we give you some free time for shopping and invite you for a coffee at the Porcelánium coffee house, where you can drink coffee out of real porcelain cups.

We then take the direction to Lake Balaton, Tihany-Peninsula, where we visit the almost 1000-year-old Benedictine Abbey with the tomb of the Hungarian king Andrew I., which is the only one royal burial place remained in its original position. Behind the Abbey you can see a unique panorama of Balaton.

We take a short walk in the centre along pleasant cafés, restaurants, folk art shops and we then invite you for a lunch in a local „Csárda” (restaurant).

After taking our lunch, we travel back to Budapest, but on the way we come to a stop in Balatonfüred, in the first spa town and tourist resort of Hungary.
