Lake Hévíz

Located close to Hévíz near the northern shore of Lake Balaton, Lake Hévíz is a geological wonder; it is Europe's largest thermal lake, and the second largest thermal lake in the world. The Lake Hévíz region has been a popular spa town for centuries and was populated since the end of the 4th century BC. The lake's unique water composition is believed to be medicinal and particularly beneficial for patients suffering from rheumatic diseases and locomotor disorders which has led to a thriving spa and health tourism industry in the region. Since the early 20th century, several resorts, vacation houses and spas were built around this beautiful emerald lake. Lake Hévíz is an ideal destination for travellers seeking to relax, enjoy the thermal spas and the area's natural beauty. Lake Hévíz can be explored on a day trip from Tihany or Budapest.
