Spending a wonderful day at Lake Balaton with a stop at the famous Herend Porcelain Manufactory
On our way to the Lake Balaton we first stop at the Herend Porcelain Manufactory. Apart from producing fine porcelain, the Manufactory also provides ideal conditions for popularising this special profession and technology as well as to pass on the tradition of applied arts. In the Minimanufactory the visitors can get an insight into the secrets of porcelain-making while the Porcelain Museum offers a permanent exhibition and temporary shows, renewed in every season, to highlight the history of the Manufactory. The Victoria Brand Shop provides the possibility to purchase your own Herend Porcelain souvenir.
After arriving to Lake Balaton, the tour continues with a visit to the Tihany Benedictine Abbey, established by King Andrew I in 1055. The monastery's deed of foundation is the oldest Hungarian document preserved in its original form. The new church of the abbey is one of the most attractive examples of Baroque architecture.
Following the visit at the Abbey a 3-course lunch with Hungarian culinary specialties and wine tasting will take place at a ’csárda’, which is a traditional Hungarian-type restaurant.
In the afternoon the day finishes by visiting Balatonfüred which is one of the most popular resort towns of Hungary situated on the north shore of the lake. It is considered to be the capital of the Northern lake shore and has significant yachting life. It is also a favorite location for coarse fishing, carp being the most common catch. Participants can take a walk along the old-fashioned Tagore promenade which is surrounded by tall trees and has got many shops, restaurants, cafés and ice cream parlors.
The program is optional, the price of 90 EUR/person includes the transfer by an air-conditioned bus, guided tours in the Herend Porcelain Manufactory, at the Tihany Benedictine Abbey and in Balatonfüred as well as the 3-course lunch with wine tasting.
