For the bikers arriving in Köveskál, KerékBár is just what the doctor’s ordered: a smiling Madonna statue by the roadside with a gigantic lavender bush at its feet against the backdrop of a seemingly infinite Balaton Uplands National Park. KerékBár is a friendly family business that makes you feel like coming home to your own garden after an exhausting bike tour. On the most beautiful hill of the Káli Basin you can restore your energy and enjoy the landscape with refreshing beverages, home-made jams and Nagyvázsony kifli with Liptauer. Those who need a quick fix to their bike problems will find tools, a bicycle pump and inner tubes. You won’t be able to rent a bike here, but you’ll be fine otherwise whatever language you speak.
A blue ribbon day at Balatonfüred, with the unveiling of a new harbour, Kékszalag, capable of accommodating some 140 sailing boats.
