There are dozens of thermal baths nearby. Many of them have been visited by people for centuries because of the proven healing properties of the bubbling water. The world-famous hot spring is that of Hévíz, which has formed a real crater lake. As early as 1795 Count Festetics (also known from the Festetics castle in Keszthely) had this place developed as a therapeutic spa.
The temperatures are great: in the early and late season it is between 20 and 25 degrees and in July and August it is about 25 to 35 degrees during the day. Hungary has a lot of sun hours, an average of 2000 hours per year.
Spring and autumn:
The spring and autumn are ideal periods for cycling along and around Lake Balaton. Nature comes to life and the flowering looks at its best. The temperature is not too high, about 20 to 25 degrees, and the air feels light because the moisture content is relatively low.
