The nearest place were we can watch birds is in the birdbander station at Fenékpuszta. There you get to know the catching of birds and a smaller zoo will be surely of interest for the young ones. At Balatonszentgyörgy next to the Gulya Csárda some Hungarian grey cattles idle peacefully. At Vörs you can find a small firefighting museum, regional cottages and a bird watching place if you go on the dirt road after the manor. If you plan an all-day trip, you should also include the „Star Castle”, where waxworks, animal stroking and a periodical country tavern give unforgettable experience.
Keszthely and the Little Balaton are not currently connected by a bike route, thus it is recommended to take the not that dangerous surfaced roads. Zalavár is a small township, which can be proud of a great historical past: basilica of Récéskút, the ruins of the abbey once property of the archbishop of Salzburg, a monument for Cirill and Method. The Little Balaton Exhibition House offers you an insight into the local wildlife. You can cycle in a nature reserve from the house to Balatonhídvég. If you go slowly you won’t disturb the birds! From the bird watching lodge of Hídvég you can see a real bird paradise.
If you go further on the public road from Little Balaton Exhibition House along the dike it is not worth stopping only for some refreshment. In Zalakaros a spa awaits for you offering a rejuvenating experience regardless of the season. There are also nice
restaurants around. The next stop is Kápolnapuszta, where dozens of peaceful water buffalos loiter – accompanied by birds. Homewards it is worth visiting the Island of Kányavár and the bird watching lodge of Hídvég.
