The lake is big and deep!The water is warm, but not clean.We went to there after 5pm and it was a working day, so few people, very quiet. I had to say this lake is ok, not very special.if you have enough time and is very interested in it, you will enjoy it, otherwise I prefer to take a walk... More

A place free of many tourists, it was outstanding! The thermal lake and spa were an adventure. But buy a flotation device before going in or at the spa. Don't miss the mud bath. An incredible experience and a must do in Hungary. You leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Just a car ride away from Budapest.

There is a visitor's ticket for 700 ft had lake ticked (just like the standard 3-h-lake ticket) and is valid for 30 minutes. Exactly what you are looking for when the spa is on your journey and you want to get an idea how it is... however, we missed the little asterisk indicating that it does not include swimming (what...

The Curative lake of Heviz is the largest biologically active, natural, peat and thermal lake of volcanic origin in the world. It is surrounded by a beautiful forest which protects from the wind The St Andrew Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases is located on the west side of the lake.

We went in the morning, it's very nice and water was warm, not too hot, but body warm, eve it was a little crowded ,both by tourists and locals, they don't seem to bother you, as the lake is big enough for a lot of people, the things I did not like is about the Health Spa, it's too far... More

Had a great time there. You may find the lake scary if you can't swim :) The surroundings are lovely too.

We bought 3-hours ticket and went inside. It wasn't very crowdy and we went straight into the lake. Swam around a little bit and that was it. Majority of others had some kind of floaters and were hanging on them and chatting. On the deck chairs we read some newspapers and left for other activities, even though we still had... More

I had a very pleasant experience there. We bought a 3 hour pass each me and my gf, (costs around 8,5 EUR per person). Once you get inside there are tanning beds etc. all for free. There are several places there to eat, and a bar. If you are in the area do not miss this place. The water is... More

Me, myself, won't go into a lake where I don't know how deep it is, this lake is at some points immessurable. Also the seaweed and waterlilies touch your legs when you swim, a bit scary. Buy or rent a floating ring, if you're scared like me, then it's fantastic.

After the busy days in Budapest, I visited Heviz with a friend and it was some seriously overdue relaxation. I could have stayed there ALL day had there not been a time restriction. I was amazing! There are areas to explore, inside and out. Natural to the core! My friend had to drag me out to leave it was so... More
