The main attraction of Hévíz is the lake and its surroundings. But you not just see the Lake, its surroundings, and the sights of the city you can also feel them. Come with us and you will see that during a walk in Hévíz we use all of our sense organs.
We wonder at the lake, the water lilies, and the magnificent flowers of the promenade that exude good mood, liveliness and beauty. We smell the healing odour of the water and the flowers, and the aroma of the coffee coming from the pleasant terraces of the cafés. We can hear the chirp of the birds after waking up in the morning, the tempting gipsy music from restaurants in the evenings, but we do not hear the regular city noises, the hooters of cars, and the clatter of trains.
We feel the magnificent Mediterranean micro climate of the Lake, especially on the Schulhof Vilmos promenade leading to the main entrance of the Lake. We experience the hospitality of the inhabitants, the host families. We taste the Zala specialities, the fine wines, and while having seen everything we feel the pleasure of real relaxation.
Hévíz has many faces. Check it for yourself, take a walk in the city, and find all the sights in the city and all the miracles of the nature. We look forward to seeing you in Hévíz
