In the name of the inhabitants and the Municipality of Balatonberény, I welcome our visitors on the website of our village. The village itself is located at the south side of Lake Balaton as the lake?s furthest place from Budapest. The roots of the village go far back into the history. The first written evidence of its history is a reference made in the deed of foundation of the Almádi Monastery from 1121. Its bathing culture was established by earl József Hunyadi by creating a bath resort in 1881.

From this date the village became a popular holiday destination for those who desired tranquillity or for the families with small children. In case of inconvenient weather visitors may visit the spa or thermal bathes of Hévíz or Zalakaros nearby. Accommodation may be found in the hotel, in various residences, also at private houses or at the campsite.

Those who like the nature and are ready for hiking, the view of the mountains located at north side of the lake, the peace of the island Csicsergő, a visit to the church built in 1443 and to the historical house, a walk up in the hills of grapes with its amazing panorama, and the red wine of the unique vine cellars with thatched roof scheduled as monuments may offer unforgettable memories.

We hope that you will also enjoy your stay in our village and we can greet you next time when you are coming back!
