Lake Velence is the third largest lake in Hungary. One-third of the lake
surface is covered by reed. It is one of the warmest lakes in Europe
because of the sunshine and the shallow waters with an average
depth of 1.5 metres: the temperature of the water can reach 26-28
°C in summer.
Thanks to the M7 motorway and to the suburban railway it is quicker
to get to Lake Velence than to get from Pest to Buda on a normal
weekday. However, this is not the only reason to head this way but
also because all year round this region offers numerous wonders for
those keen on near-nature experiences.
The Lake Velence provides great activities for sportsfans, like rowing,
boat trip, sailing, windsurfing, and it is possible to discover the unique
atmosphere of Lake Velence by bike on the 31 km long bicycle path.
It is a trip full of attractions and experiences in only a couple of hours.
Lovers of nature can watch the exceptionally rich avifauna of the lake
at Dinnyés Bird-watching spot.
It is one of the most popular destination in Hungary thanks to the
natural and geographical advantages of the lake.
