Balatongyörök-Keszthely (10 km)

The Balaton cycle path leads through Balatongyörök, just a few meters from the beach entrance. The bike path in the town leads directly past the lake, so you can enjoy the panorama while cycling. Along the Balatongyörök section there are four bicycle resting areas for tired cyclists. At the beach entrance of Balatongyörök there are bicycle parking places and a water block, which is open all year round and offers drinking water for bikers.

Continuing towards Keszthely, St. Michael’s Hill falls on Vonyarcvashegy. It is only a few kilometers long, so we recommend it for the smaller ones. On the hill it is worth to admire the St. Michael’s Chapel and the panorama of Lake Balaton.

The Bringatanya is located in Gyenesdiás, where, in addition to the bicycle service, ice cream from Lake Balaton serves as a refreshment.

Next on the bike path is the next station Keszthely. The distance is about 10 km. There are many attractions to choose from: Festetics Castle, Museum of Lake Balaton, Snail Parliament, Toy Museum, Marzipan Museum, Georgikon Manor Museum. You can easily return to Balatongyörök from the port of Keszthely.

Balatongyörök-Badacsony (16 km)

From Balatongyörök in the other direction, the first sights are the Szépkilátó and the Roman spring. It is worth stopping here as you can admire the most beautiful panorama of Lake Balaton from here. Sunbeds, shady trees serve to replenish the wheels.

Soon there will be another attraction, the Africa Museum in Balatonederics. Bicycling with children is especially worthwhile as it can be a great experience for them and the distance is ideal for the little ones. 2 km.

A little further away is Szigliget. It must be remembered that the ascent to the castle is more serious, but the castle Szigliget is wonderful. Even from a bike path you can see the castle from afar, which is wonderfully guarded over the lake. The view is breathtaking.

If you cross Szigliget on the road 71 from Badacsonytördemic, you will find the Roman road that leads to Badacsony, where you have to taste a glass of the famous Bluegill. It is also worth climbing the mountain, though it is undoubtedly a difficult, steep terrain. If we return by boat or train we can reach Balatongyörök if we do not want to go back by bike.
