Things to do in Hungary while camping
We don’t immediately think of Hungary as a holiday destination, but this underrated Central European nation has much to offer holidaymakers.
Our campsites are dotted around Lake Balaton where there are numerous things to do and places to discover. Venture through the scenic hiking trails of the Balaton Uplands National Park for lovely views of the lake. The flora and fauna on display at the Koloska Valley also merit a mention. For some culture, we’d recommend a visit to the Balaton Museum, Kálmán Imre Múzeum or the Festetics Palace.
There’s plenty for the kids to do in the surrounding area. Energetic children will can gleefully whizz down the bobsleigh trackers at BalatoniBob Leisure Park, which also features a forest playground. Westernpark Nemesvita is a Wild West themed amusement park that features stirring shows, panning for gold and horse riding. A day out at Annagora Aquapark will be filled with water slides, splash playgrounds and smiles.
If you are in the mood for some time in the city, the charismatic capital Budapest is around 90mins by car from our campsites. Steeped in history and a rich culture, the city is split by the river Danube and features many interesting museums, thermals spas and city parks.
The best attractions include Buda Castle, the Fisherman’s Bastion, Széchenyi Thermal Bath, the Central Market Hall and Gellért Thermal Bath. If you have kids in tow, consider a visit to the Budapest Zoo & Botanical Garden, Budapest Eye Ferris Wheel or the Budakeszi Wildlife Park.
Ensure to make some time to dine out in the capital and partake in Goulash, Lángos (deep-fried bread) and Somlói Galuska, if you have a sweet tooth.
