Continue your trip to Lake Balaton after Herend. Make a stop at the tip of the Tihany Peninsula overlooking the “Hungarian sea”, and get to know in an audioguided tour the 11th century Benedictine Tihany Abbey. After the visit, enjoy your free time in an area of pottery houses, paprika and lavender shops or have a lunch at one of the Csárda’s, a typical Hungarian restaurant with folkloric atmosphere.
