Continue your trip to Lake Balaton after Herend.

After the visit, enjoy your free time in an area of pottery houses, paprika and lavender shops or have a lunch at one of the Csárda’s, a typical Hungarian restaurant with folkloric atmosphere.

At the end of your stay in the Lake Balaton area, take a walk along the promenade at Balatonfüred, one of Hungary’s most popular holiday resorts. (With bathing option in summer time)
