Full Day Herend Porcelain Factory and Lake Balaton Tour
Spend a day in Herend, where you can admire delicate masterpieces of the porcelain factory established over 150 years ago. See how the Victoria pattern, the Art Nouveau and Hungarian style motifs are hand painted onto the porcelain, before continuing to Lake Batalon.
Leave Budapest for the day to visit the famous porcelain town of Herend and the most popular Hungarian resort of laid-back Lake Balaton. The trip includes a guided tour through the world's largest porcelain factory at Herend before continuing to beautiful Lake Balaton.
At Herend porcelain factory, founded in 1826, you'll learn how the tradition of hand-painting the highly successful patterns has been passed down from father to son. You'll have time for a coffee break here, as well as time to purchase some of the world-famous hand-painted porcelain.
The tour continues to Lake Balaton, the largest freshwater lake in Central Europe, scenically located at the foot of the volcanic hills of the Balaton Uplands. Here, you'll visit a traditional tavern to enjoy a three-course lunch with wine.
After lunch, you'll take a drive to visit the oldest spa in Hungary, Balatonfured, before returning to Budapest.
This tour is seasonal and operates from April to October only.
