The lookout tower atop Halom-hegy offers a beautiful view of Lake Balaton, but the trail that leads there is also worth investigating for its volcanic heritage.

Here near Mencshely on the north shore, a short and easy study trail leads visitors up to the lookout tower. A possible detour can take you to a crater near the lookout tower, proof of the volcanic origins of this 399-metre-high landmark.

The lookout tower was built in the 1960s and renovated in 2015, when the stone map and model of Lake Balaton were also built. The wooden structure offers a perfect view of of South Bakony and Lake Balaton.

To reach it, follow one of the various trails that start from the car park at the foot of Halom-hegy. The one marked with a blue T is the most interesting.
