    Ha van rajtad 10-20 kiló súlyfelesleg, akkor megszenvedsz! Mi a Kisfaludy háztól indultunk.Csak süketelés az ,hogy könnyen és vidáman fel lehet menni. Még a fittek is szuszogtak rendesen felfelé. De amint felérsz és felmész a kilátóba, rögtön elfelejtesz minden megpróbáltatást, mert olyan körpanorámában lesz részed, hogy az álladat úgy kell felszedned a vulkáni porból! Ráadásul piszok büszke leszel magadra és lefelé menet kajánul vigyorogsz magadban a felfelé igyekvőkre, főleg a Hertelendy emlékhely környékén, hogy te már túl vagy rajta! Egyszóval nagyon megéri, menj fel, ne törődj semmivel, csak élvezd oda s vissza!

    Nice walk/hike to Badacsony volcano
    I saw other reviews for this attraction and we used free afternoon to visit this place. From fare it looks majestic. Start Rout described here is wrong. I strongly suggest to visit Badacsony info place where you will get a map which will guide you on the hill. Starting point and parking in place called Kikőtő. You will have to pay for parking place. Then first 10 - 15 minutes are steps a lot of them. Then there is a wood walk. We walked almost all routes on the hill and took us good 2 hours (with 4 year old son). Be aware there are a Million Moskitos that are waiting for you. If you stop just for a 10s you will know what I'm talking about. Use protection. Otherwise I recommend this walk also if it is sunny almost entire route goes trough woods.

We walked to the top of this no longer active volcano and found the nature on the walk was wonderful and then at the top the views are magnificent of the surrounding valley and across the lake. Well worth the effort and once at the top we were also blessed to have such a peaceful time to enjoy the views alone.

We walked up to the summit, and around the side, as a rest from cycling round Lake Balaton. We had a beautiful day, and from the lookout tower on the summit, one can see all round the area, including the other volcanic hills.

Found an amazing house on the hill, and the we started the trip from there, and walk around the whole mountain. It was amazing view to Balaton and to the whole Káli-medence.

Northern side of lake Balaton is full with very very old, inactive volcanoes - on some of the you can climb up by trkking route - receommended only if weather is not heating - there are serveral hikking routes and walk-arounds, pending on your condition.

Definitely recommend riding around the Romai Ut of Badacsony and visiting the odd cellar along the way. Very scenic and worth the effort.

The Badacsony is the highest witness-hill in Tapolca-basin. It's part of Balaton Uplands National Park, Hungary. The mountain has almost circular perimeter of 11 km, the roof's height is 1-1.5 km in diameter, the highest point above sea level 437.4 m. To the "mountain's skirts" (above Kisfaludy ház) you can drive up, but if you want a challange, start from the Lake... The most well developed hiking trails are on this mountain in the area. Take min. 3-4 hours for this, but if you have time, take a look at Szent György-hegy at Hegymagas, Csobánc at Tapolca-Diszel, Tóti-hegy at Káptalantóti, Hegyesd, and Hegyestű at Monoszló as well.
In autumn is the best.

This was a fun hike (maybe 1.5 hours) up to an observation tower. Seeing all the surrounding mountains from the tower was cool.
