The Inaccessible Lake


During the Easter vacation, Lars and I had been to Hungary as well. A couple of times, we had driven along the Neusiedler See (Lake Neusiedl).  We were very eager to visit it, but we decided it would be better during summer. Lake Neusiedl is one of the largest lakes in Europe. Only a small part is located in Hungary,…

Between The Lakes


Our next stop was the cozy town of Tata. Tata and Tatabanya are not the same town! If you are looking for magnificent scenery, you better go to Tata. It is situated in a valley, surrounded by big and small lakes. The town has got some beautiful castles and churches, but on a very hot afternoon, the only thing Lars…

At The Waterside


Summer… One of the ingredients of a successful summer trip – at least for me – is being on a beach, preferably a sandy beach. I don’t have to be there 2 weeks in a row, a couple of days can be enough for me. It’s not about sunbathing nor obtaining the perfect tan. I simply love the feeling of…

Between Donau and Balaton – The artificial lake


Almost every day, when we left the hotel for our excursions and when we came back, we passed a lake that is located at the outskirts of Köszeg. I became curious and was captivated by its beauty. I had to do a bit of research, but apparently it is an artificial lake and it is called the Abért Lake. It serves as…

Between Donau and Balaton – Love locks and a splendid view


Our last stop at the southern shore was Balatonvilágos. When we don’t have a specific address, Lars and I usually program the GPS for the center of town, especially when we go to a small place. We usually end up near a church or tourist information office. For Balatonvilágos our GPS sent us far away from the actual center; we still have…

Between Donau and Balaton – Szántód


Our next stop at the Balaton was Szántód. Szántód is a small village at the lake. It is mainly known because there is a car ferry that takes you to the beautiful peninsula of Tihany (which is located at the northern shore). And it’s at the departure point of this ferry that I took some pictures. As always I put most…

Between Donau and Balaton – Where the poet killed himself


Sounds dramatic, doesn’t it? But it’s true: Balatonszárszó is not only a serene and the oldest resort at the Balaton. It is also known as the place where Attila József committed suicide. Attila József (1905 – 1937) was one of Hungary’s most important poets, but he felt rejected by his literary peers and his lover. He spent his last days in Balatonszárszó and…

Between Donau and Balaton – Where is the lake?


Our next stop was the small resort of Balatonlelle. Since Hungary is not located to any sea, you can imagine that a lot of its people go to Lake Balaton during the summer holiday. Balantonlelle has a sandy beach, for which you have to pay and a grass beach, which is free. Somehow we couldn’t find either beach. A lot…
