9. Two-day tour from Budapest to Vienna via Lake Balaton

Itinerary for the 1st day:

  • Short walk in the oldest town built on the lakeside, Balatonfüred
  • Visit to the enchanting Peninsula of Tihany and stay for lunch tasting pike-perch and Balaton wines
  • Visit to the Festetics Mansion, the most beautiful Hungarian palace
  • Stay overnight in one of the hotels on the lakeside
    • evening options : night bathing, wine tasting, concerts or dancing in charming villages surrounded by vineyards

Itinerary for the 2nd day:

  • In the morning we can choose some physical activities – like bathing in Lake Balaton or in the warm watered lake Héviz – or  exploring some other treasures of the countryside by visiting a castle or a stately home of the Nádasdy barons or of the Esterházy princes
  • Scenic drive from Lake Balaton to the best preserved medieval town of Hungary, Sopron
  • Lunch in Sopron followed by a guided walking tour that covers an architectural heritage from the Roman Age to the Good Olden Days of the Habsburg Empire
  • Free time in town and say goodbye to Hungary
  • Border-crossing to Austria and transfer to Vienna

Castles and mansions, as always, have only stairs but otherwise it is a well balanced, relaxing tour that makes no problems for people in wheelchair.
