The Lake

Lake Balaton, about 80 km southwest of Budapest, it is central Europes largest lake.

LakeBalaton

LakeBalaton

It has an area of 598 square km (231 square miles) and extends for 77 km (48 miles) along the southern foothills of the Bakony Mountains of Hungary. At its widest point, Lake Balaton measures about 14 km (9 miles) across. It is relatively shallow, with a maximum depth of 11 meters (37 feet).

One of the main characteristic features of Vas County is its small villages. 127, that is 59%, of a total of 216 communities have fewer than 500 inhabitants.

The regions around the lake are inhabited by a rich and interesting variety of plant and animal life. There is a wildlife reserve in the Tihany Peninsula, and another one in the extensive reed beds near Keszthely, where rare water birds nest. The southern border of the lake is very fertile, and the volcanic soils to the northwest form the basis of a noted wine-growing region.

The fine climate and the exquisite soil made the area around Lake Balaton one of the most significant pillars of Hungarian wine production with five wine regions.

Tip: If you want it all - and in one place - you can sample all the wine types produced around Lake Blaton, just visit the House of Balatonian Wines in Keszthely.

For those who understand that wine tasting is also a matter of ambiance and environment, we are including a map of the Badacsony Historical Wineregion Wine Route for you to download.
