Well, I am really lucky as my family has a summer house in a small village close to Keszthely. Every minute you can spend there, worth it truly.
Let me share with you some more things to do in the close area of Keszthely.
Inside the city there are many things to see, lot of museums are waiting for you. First there is the Balaton Museum about the natural and cultural life of Lake Balaton as well as about history of sailing and shipping.
Keszthely is really famous about his fine art and you can visit many many interesting show-offs. Most known is maybe the marzipan museum, where you can see extraordinary fancy cakes.
If you want to be shocked, there is a Horror Museum, where you can see different types of mortifying tools.
Little more nicer, there is the Doll Museum to visit, the greatest doll museum of Central Europe. The folk costums and clothes of burghers and craftsmen of the historical Hungary are presented by about half thousand dolls. The heads, hands and legs of these dolls are made of porcelain, but the bodies are made of textile. There are two separate glass-case where the 120 dolls from Transylvania can be found.
This is all about culture but I can not forget to mention the summer life of this place.
The water quality of the Lake Balaton is better from year to year. Keszthely is on the nord side of Balaton, with great beaches and harbor, what makes shipping connections with other cities at the cost. This harbor is very popular for whom like to sail. The nightlife of the city and the area is crowding, many great restaurants, pubs and discos are waiting for guests.
