PORT OF BALATONFÜRED-CRUISING ON LAKE BALATON
The port of Balatonfüred is a popular walking location. No wonder, with it’s far reach into the lake, it presents a beautiful picture. It provides a good view of the Tihany peninsula streching into the water. In clear weather you can also feast your eyes on the southern beaches of the lake. It is an especially spectacular sight during smooth summer evenings.
The port is operational since 1846 and is expecting guests ready to sail ever since, all thanks to Count Istvan Széchenyi. The dock has been rebuilt several times before reaching it’s current state.
There are many ways to take a take a trip on the water :
- 1 hour cruise
- 2 hours cruise

For a better experience, we recommend to plan multiple programs.Take a boat trip to Tihany and explore the beauty of the town. Visit the abbey from up close and take a tour to the monk’s dwellings carved into the hillside.
