Let’s embark on the trip!

Kp030Wine growing is still the major activity at Kishegy, which is part of Balatonlelle, but is also a fine place for visiting tourists with its special atmosphere and picturesque view. On the top of the nearly 200 m hight mountains stands a small historical Barocque chapel, and on the opposite side is the house and wine cellar of the vine-dresser, which was built in the 18 th century. There is a concrete road leading from settlement to the vineyard.
Over and above the vineyard is a 136-hectare Forest Park, developed particulary for tourism.
The foot of the hill is place worth stopping for lovers of horse riding. The well – designed and built horse track has hosted a number of horse races, along with show jumping and coach driving championships.
Starting in the direction of Budapest, we can reach Rádpuszta by the interconnecting road, which is the exit of M7 motorway. Those arriving to Rádpuszta will enjoy the benefits of the traditional Hungarian atmosphere and hospitality. The horsse – riding centre and the restaurant are the favourite spot of children and adults alike. In addition to horse programs, we can take a closer look at some traditional Hungarian animal species, and can also taste the wines of the region at the wine cellar located below the restaurant itself. While here, we can also visit the excavated remains of a late- Romanesque-style church, which was built in the 13 th century. In summer music fans can enjoy the chamber music evenings held hereDSC 0001
 The swampy forest surrounding the plains is a place for lovers of the wild, unaffected nature.

Balatonlelle is proud of its red-stone church, the only one of its kind on the southern coast, designed by architect Bertalan Árkay. It’s internal adornments, it’s unique painted glass-windows, the mosaic above the altar, and the paintings all represent exceptional artistic value. In the park of the church stands the statue of the cardinal archbishop, László Lékay. (Balatonlelle, Kossuth str. 81.)

In the Africa Museum – which was first opened in the summer of 2000 – we can view the African trophy collection of count Pongrách Sommsich. In addition to the large number of enormous trophies, the exhibited objects include cultic statues, original articles of personal use, as well as photos and illustrations, showing the complete florae and fauna of Central Africa. This exceptional private collection is awaiting visitors with foreign-language information material all year round.
