Lake Balaton

4.3
Hungarian Sea
A top destination among Hungarian tourists, Lake Balaton is Europe's largest freshwater lake, surrounded by natural beauty, history, and array of outdoor activities. The long, thin lake stretches 77 km (48 mi) in length with a maximum width of 14 km (8.7 mi), and its calm aquamarine waters are perfect for swimming, sailing, and other water sports. Your Lake Balaton itinerary can also include exploring the lush forests and nearby national park on foot or horseback, plus wine tastings in the area's vineyards. Take in the local culture by touring the museums, medieval ruins and fortresses, and thatched-roofed farmhouses that dot the countryside, giving the area a fairy-tale atmosphere. Most tourists come during summer, when cultural events such as concerts and performances proliferate and an active nightlife scene springs up. Take a peek at our world travel planner: Lake Balaton and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
