Lake Velence

Lake Velence is the third largest lake in Hungary. One-third of its surface is covered by reed. It is one of the warmest lakes in Europe because of the sunshine and its shallow waters with an average depth of 1.5 metres: the temperature of the water can reach 26-28 ºC.

The excellent water of Lake Velence, rich in minerals (sodium and magnesium) can refresh and regenerate your exhausted body. Apart from bathing it is also suitable for the relieving of rheumatic pains. Lovers of nature can watch the exceptionally rich avian world of the lake at the Dinnyés Bird-watching Spot. It is one of the most frequented holiday resorts in Hungary thanks to its natural and geographical advantages and the regulation of the lake.
