Introducing Keszthely

Keszthely, a city of grand town houses perched at the very western end of Lake Balaton, is hands-down one of the loveliest spots to stay, far removed from the tourist hot spots on the lake. You can dip in its small, shallow beaches by day, absorb its lively yet relaxed ambience by night and get a dose of culture by popping into its handful of museums and admiring its historical buildings. Whatever you do, don't miss the Festetics Palace, a lavish baroque home fit for royalty. Unlike other towns along the lake, Keszthely is a university town and therefore stays awake in winter.
