Lake Balaton and Herend Full-Day Trip

  • English English
  • 9 hours 30 minutes

Set off on a full-day trip from Budapest to one of Hungary’s most popular tourist destinations: the renowned porcelain city Herend and Lake Balaton, Central Europe’s largest freshwater lake.

Lake Balaton and Herend Full-Day Trip

Having been picked up at 9 am, we'll board a comfortable minibus and embark on the two-hour drive to Tihany, located on the Tihany Peninsula. This picturesque village offers the best views of the stunning Balaton Lake, a favourite tourist destination among Hungarians.

In Tihany, follow your knowledgeable guide on a tour of the Benedictine Abbey. The monastery was founded in 1055 by King Andrew I of Hungary and he is buried in its crypt. The Abbey was reconstructed in 1754 in a Baroque style.

Leaving Tihany behind, we'll make our way to Balatonfüred, Hungarys oldest spa town. We'll stroll along scenic promenades and enjoy the fresh air in Balatonfüred before heading to the final stop on our excursion: Herend, a small historic town famous worldwide for its luxury handmade porcelain.

Upon arrival in Herend, we'll visit one of the world’s largest porcelain factories, founded in 1826. After learning how porcelain is manufactured during a guided tour, you’ll enjoy a cup of coffee and free time to do some shopping.

At the end of the day, we'll make the return journey to Budapest, arriving back around 7 pm.
