We saved ourselves a steep walk up to the town by getting on this lovely little train. Cheap at only 400 Ft per adult and 300 Ft per child. Going back, the boat waited for the passengers from the train - so we needn't have sprinted. :-D

We thought this was a great way to visit the monastery, but on asking the driver for hop 0n-hop off tickets as advertised he didn't know what we were talking about so just did the single ticket.

Tihany is perched on a hill and represents a very kitch and touristy "old" Hungarian village.

If you have not enough time, you should travel with it, because balatonfured big, but I think on foot it's much better.

If you want to see Lovely Tihany in an easy way: hop on the Town train! The little street train takes you past all that is worth seeing and takes the effort away from yourself of having to walk this hilly town by yourself! Staff is very friendly and accommodating!

The traveling on this train is a unique experience, because under way you can admire the beautiful city and the Balaton, and sway a pleasant, lukewarm breeze. Along the lake there is a bike path, a sightseeing flight station and from the harbor departs tour boats several times a day.
