Campsites in Hungary are often wrongly classified as Eastern European campsites. Central European is actually far more appropriate, as the country is more western and more modern than you might expect. It’s also nice to know that campsite prices are slightly lower than in Western or Southern Europe. Hungary – it is rich in tradition and atmosphere!
Camping in Hungary: a central European holiday paradise
You’ll love holidaying in Hungary, from the very moment you arrive at the campsite. Hungary is both hospitable and affordable, you can eat well and the locals make excellent wine! The best time to visit is during one of the many festivals held during the summer! Campsites in Hungary offer good camping pitches, but also the opportunity to rent a bungalow or mobile home.
Campsites at Lake Balaton
Most visitors to Hungary opt for a campsite at Lake Balaton, the largest freshwater lake in Europe and a real paradise for campers. Tourism plays a vital role along the shores of this vast lake, and there is a wide selection of restaurants, bars and other venues to choose from.
Sights in Hungary
You will find no shortage of places to visit from your campsite during your holiday, including Budapest, Veszprém and Zala, to name but a few.
The capital city Budapest actually comprises two parts: Buda, with its medieval castle overlooking the Danube towards Pest, with its famous zoo and thermal baths.
North of Lake Balaton lies the province of Veszprém and the town of the same name. The town is built on five hills and is known for its many buildings and monuments.
The ‘metropolis’ on the southwest of Lake Balaton is the cultural centre of the province of Zala. The 18th century baroque castle with its beautiful gardens is a sight to behold. The town of Hévíz is home to the unique Hévíz spa, the largest natural and biological thermal lake in the world. Buses run from Keszthely to Hévíz every half an hour.
This town on the eastern shore of Lake Balaton has developed into something of a party town. Both German and English are widely spoken, and lovers of culture will not be disappointed here. Many in Siófok still remember the town’s most famous resident, Emmerich Kálmán, composer of the legendary operetta ‘The Gypsy Princess’.
