A short trip to Lake Balatonc

The capital of the Balaton region

It was a sunny day in my hometown Vienna and I wanted to leave this city for a short weekend trip to... well. .. to Keszthely at Lake Balaton. If you never heard about that village, you are not the only one. I have to admit, I also didn´t know that place although I visited that famous lake before.

Before I show you the places which we visited I want to tell you some words about Keszthely:

Population: 24.000
Location: at the north-west end of the Balaton, about 200 km southeast of Budapest and about 230 km southeast from Vienna.
Sights: ... well, take a look at my Keszthely page, you will see some nice places which are worth to visit...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Nice castle with a wonderful park and interesting museum
  • Cons:Hmmm.... sorry, I couldn´t find any con´s
