Badacsony is not only the name of the village, but also on the mountain that rises above the village. It is not very high, but with its 440 meters, it is the area's highest mountain and its characteristic shape makes it a landmark.

The area is primarily known for its wine production which actually dates back to Roman times. Above all, white wine is produced here but red wine of the lighter kind is also available.

Major focus is naturally on wine and food, but there is much else to do, too. Lake Balaton - the continent's largest lake - offers swimming, boating and fishing (motorboats have long been banned for environmental reasons).

We have two golf courses "around the corner" and if someone is tempted to just put on his boots and go for a hike,this is the place to be. For those who want to explore the area by bike, there is a rental shop nearby.
