in Badacsony, Badacsonytomaj:   Hotel - Sight - Wellness, Spa - Travel Service - Business Travel

Tapolcai hollow with the basalt hills bordering it provides perhaps the most varied scenery of the country. Two millions of tourists visit this region each year. The southernmost hill of the mountain is Badacsony forming a peninsula in the Lake. Summer cottage of the famous painter, József Egry, at the port; today the house of the "lover of Balaton" is a memorial museum. Greatest sight of the village is Badacsony hill itself. The shape and geological relics of the hill clearly show how volcanic mountains had been developed. The upper 'basalt cap' protected the soft parts of the hill from the effects of wind and water so only the surroundings of the hill had become thinner in the course of millions of years. Edges of basalt deposit have been continuously destroyed by erosion; this way the spectacular basalt organs and stone sacks had been created. The famous vineyards of Badacsony are located downwards from them, on the rich sedimentary ground. We can get to the Kisfaludy Villa and the press-house and living-house of the poet's wife, Róza Szegedy on an asphalted road from the port. Memorial exhibition of literature on the second floor of the building with a porch and a thatched roof. A steep path for tourists goes from the Kisfaludy House to Kisfaludy Look-out Tower (437 metres high). Top of the hill is worth walking round for on the western side Steps of Fugitives (Bujdosó-lépcső) go down to the shore. Wide variety of programmes in summer and autumn in Badacsony. Outstanding events are the Wine Weeks of Badacsony starting at the end of July and the Badacsony Vintage in the middle of September (national programme of two days with a spectacular procession, an open market and a vintage ball).
