Hévíz lies near the famous lake of Hungary, the Lake Balaton, but it holds a just as much famous lake itself. The lake of Hévíz is world famous for its healing power and the thermal spa built upon it. The relaxing environment of the lake and the forest ring around it surely adds to the healing effects of the spa complex. Around the lake, the lovers of active relaxing can pay their respects at the Schulhoff Avenue, where they will feel the urge of taking loads of photos of the compelling flowers and the wondrous sycamore trees flanking the avenue. The Town Hall of Hévíz is also interesting for tourist because its foundation-stone was placed by the one and only Hungarian spaceman Bertalan Farkas. In front of the Town Hall you can see the most modern building in the whole town: the Holy Spirit Catholic Church which holds organ concerts very often. It is recommended to rent a car in order to be able to visit the tight neighborhood of Hévíz, for example Egregy where you can marvel at the wine yards, but make sure you bring a designated driver with you. You can also check out a few of Lake Balaton’s sights such as the Keszthely-mountain range.
