The lake of Hévíz is the biggest biologically active, natural medicinal water in the world. Its temperature is affected by the combination of cold and hot spring waters coming from underground. The medicinal water breaks out from the spring cave on the surface at the rate of approx. 410 litres per second and with a temperature of 40°C. According to that delivery, the water in the lake changes every three and a half days and keeps uniformly clean.

I visited this facility recently and found the entire experience fantastic. Firstly try and pick your day ( the warmer the better ) and don't be put off if the place look busy, there is so much space you won't be crowded. Remember they don't take euros so have some change for the car park . There is an ATM... More

This amazing lake near the western end of Balaton replenishes its water every couple of days, fed by underground hot and cold springs. Part of it is a mineral rich mud bath which you can swim to or enter from the main building. All included in the admission price, which is cheaper the last 2 hours of the day. but... More

We visited this August and really enjoyed the Thermal lake... So warm you have to try to believe Our 5 year old really enjoyed it, floating around in his water wings... You can take floatations devices to aid a relaxing time, and we would recommend you do so. It's possible to spend all day here Car park across road, not... More

Considering we do not speak Hungarian, we found the Lake experience not as intimidating as we had thought. Once you buy your pass (credit cards accepted), you are given a wrist band. This is used for entrance to the lake and the facilities. There is a machine which reads the wrist band and tells you which locker is available for... More

Lake was quite busy. But everything was clean and service was good. Unfortunately we couldnt find a good spot for people who cant swim and is afraid of deep water.

For the last 5-6 years I visited a number of European spa hotels and resorts specialising in treatments of musculoskeletal diseases. In particular, spa hotels in different parts of Italy and the Czech Republic. In 2015, I've come to Heviz to explore the curative qualities of the famous lake Haviz, it's thermal water and to ensure it works for me.... More

This is at the same time one of the best and one of the worst thermal spas I've ever been to. It still gets 4 stars from me because the good things about it more than make up for the bad. The best thing is of course the lake itself. Wonderful, warm, clean and natural thermal water in a stunning... More
