Cycling on the shore of Lake Balaton

If you can finally get away from everyday life, have the opportunity to relax and if you would spend your free time with active recreation, spring into the saddle, as cycling is the best solution to it.

In Balatonberény bicycle is a popular means of transport. Not only the coming tourists, but also the locals are keen on using it, since the less busy roads allow them to cycle undisturbedly and safely. However, this means of transport is not only used for getting one place to another, but it is also perfect equipment for active recreation.

The more comfortable bikers – whether with family or alone –, due to the established roads, can discover the cellars on the vineyard, yellow soiled cart-roads and the sunny accommodation roads of Berény, beside the charming little village.
Due to the favourable geographical facilities of the area, as well as the bike road around Lake Balaton, which goes through the village, Keszthely can be easily reached in less than an hour from the north and Fonyód from the east. Since this shore is not divided by hills and mountains, it cannot be a big challenge to cover the distance even for families with small children.

The village is the ideal starting and ending point of bicycle tours, as due to the connection to Badacsony and Révfülöp served by pleasure boats, or to Tihany served by the ferry various distances can be covered even during a day. Those who are more adventurous can dare to make the whole distance of the 200 kilometres long bike road around Lake Balaton, in the course of which you can glance back at Balatonberény, the “Green Corner of Lake Balaton”.
