Lake Balaton, the largest freshwater lake of Central Europe, is often referenced as the “Hungarian sea”. The impressive, 77 kilometres long and – at its widest point – 14 kilometres wide lake is an absolute wonder of natural beauty.
Beyond the magic of its crystal-clear water, Lake Balaton is a coveted destination for lovers of sailing, kitesurfing, windsurfing and SUP. The annual Blue Ribbon Regatta hosted here is Europe’s largest lake sailing race of this kind.
The town of Balatonfüred is a true pearl on the lake. It attracts visitors from all over the world coming to enjoy a large variety of cultural programs and entertainment opportunities throughout the year. Balatonfüred is located in one of the region’s most famous wine regions best known for its award-winning white wines. In recent years, the town has become a real stronghold for gastro and wine tourism.
