No matter what season of the year, the popular destination of Lake Balaton offers amazing landscapes and breathtaking panorama to its visitors. In order to immerse yourself in the wonderful sights, it is worth visiting the most special lookout points of the Hungarian Sea where the magical visual experience is guaranteed.
In addition to its unique shape, the lookout point of Balatonboglár offers a fantastic panorama to its visitors,
as a result of which it won the Lookout of the Year title in 2020.
The special viewpoint that received its name after its unique shape also serves as the main symbol of the city, standing on the 60-metre-high Castle Hill, from where we can admire Lake Balaton and the so-called “Witness Hills” on the opposite north coast. After numerous renovation projects, the lookout tower opened its doors to visitors in 2012. Since then, we have been able to enjoy its wonderful panorama that is worth a stop when visiting the Hungarian Sea.
The Maritime History Visitor Centre in Balatonföldvár is a special, ship-shaped building.
The mast operates as a lookout tower, while in the internal part of the building, visitors can enjoy an interactive exhibition.
The 25-metre-high lookout tower, located on a 40-metre-high bank, offers an unparalleled view of Lake Balaton. The top of the lookout tower can be reached by climbing 166 stairs, but the designers also thought of less adventurous visitors who can take an elevator to reach the top. The building opened its doors in 2016 and gained great popularity. Currently, it is temporarily closed due to the pandemic. Still, its fantastic panorama will await visitors in post-pandemic times as well.
Located on the Tihany Peninsula, the 16.5-metre-high lookout tower, built of wood and local stone, offers a beautiful panoramic view, from where we can see the Abbey, the Outer and Inner Lakes, Balatonfüred, and, of course, the beautiful Hungarian Sea. As Csodálatos Balaton reports, the shape of the lookout tower evokes the former Roman watchtowers. In clear weather, we can admire Siófok, Zamárdi, Balatonföldvár, or the Kőröshegy Valley Bridge on the other side.
Balatongyörök is the ideal destination for those who are not keen on climbing but would like to admire the picturesque beauty of Lake Balaton, the Tapolca Basin, and the Szigliget Bay from the Beautiful Lookout Tower. The horizontal viewpoint offers a fantastic panorama all year long.
As the Hungarian news portal 24.hu reports, the newest lookout point of Lake Balaton can be found in Balatonlelle. The panoramic and relaxing terrace is made of wood, from where there is an amazing view of the Hungarian Sea. From the building that blends into the landscape, we have a beautiful view of the Witness Hills of the Balaton Uplands, as well as the heights of the southern shore, such as Fonyódi Hill and the previously mentioned Sphere Lookout in Balatonboglár.
