Enjoy Hungary beyond Budapest
Yes, Hungary has a lot to offer for the open-minded tourist, from a river trip down the Danube to the Puszta steppes and the fantastic Balaton Lake. But a holiday in Hungary will and should start in beautiful Budapest, the Hungarian capital. Especially if you walk along the Danube river banks you will see some fine sights. The Gellért Hotel, the old castle palace on its hill over the town and the university are some highlights of a river walk. St. Stephens Basilica is another must-see; Stephen I was the first King of Hungary and brought Christianity to his people. For the dance-all-night-crowd Budapest is heaven on earth, you can find parties and clubs for every music taste and enjoy dancing until sunrise. In the VIIth district of Budapest are lots of bars and clubs to make your night the best party night ever. The eventual hangover can be cured in one of the many beautiful spas that are fed by mineral water springs. Budapest alone has more than 100 of these.
But there is so much more to see. If you like horses and horseback riding, you must visit the famous Puszta steppes, where horse breeding is an old tradition. Watch the Csikós, the horse herders, going about their old ways of working with the elegant animals and perform marvelous tricks on horseback. If you like wine, go to Eger, where the world famous red wine called Bull’s Blood is coming from. It is also a beautiful medieval town east of Budapest. Another world famous winegrowing region is Tokaj, where sweet dessert wines are made which were called by French King Louis XIV “Wine of Kings, King of Wines.” Even in the national anthem of Hungary the wine is mentioned.
While Hungary has no coast to the sea, it does have the Balaton, a mighty lake and main tourist destination of Hungary. All around the Balaton are towns with excellent infrastructure for the tourists, anything from swimming to sailing and kite surfing is on offer. Because the lake is only 10 feet deep it warms up quite fast in the summer sun. There are also parties on the beaches and the Balaton Sound music festival. The hearty Hungarian food will help you to get a viable basis before going to one of the Balaton wine festivals. For the real active tourist there are mountain bike tours down the Danube or trekking trips in the mountains of the northern province Transdanubia to the Valley of the Beautiful Women. All types of tourists will find all types of entertainment, so book your Lufthansa flight to Hungary now and enjoy the many sights, sounds and tastes of this beautiful part of Europe.
