Visitors can explore the villages and try out some of the local wine made from Olaszrizling grapes. There are three churches and many other eighteenth and nineteenth century buildings to admire. Kossuth Spring as well as several other carbonated springs provide mineral-rich water for the renowned hospital as well as many spas of the city. You can have a taste by sipping from the Lajos Kossuth drinking hall. Many visitors enjoy sauntering along the Tagore Promenade, which sometimes features a wine festival and is beautifully lit up at nighttime. For more enjoyment, you can stroll around Sundance Park, the former Greek quarter now filled with restaurants and nightlife venues. Lake Balaton provides the chance to go sailing. For tourists who forego the summer high season, they can enjoy winter in Füred by ice skating on the lake.

Budget-minded travelers will be happy to note that hostels abound in this resort town and its surroundings, especially in Siófok. Guest ratings indicate that the hostels in Veszprém county come in two main varieties: horrible and wonderful. Do not allow a hostel’s pricing to sway your choice; in this town, higher cost is not indicative of better quality.
