We set off from Kehidakustány towards the world-famous Lake Hévíz. We drive through the quiet countryside of Zala to the world-famous peat-bog spa lake, first described in the 14th century. Its waters are able to treat rheumatic musculoskeletal disorders, gout, secondary arthritis and chronic peripheral nervous system diseases. Apart from its medicinal properties, the lake's speciality is the late night blooming Indian red fairy rose, which was introduced in the late 19th century. In addition to the red fairy rose, there are also small-flowered white fairy roses, the only native species in the lake.

Author’s recommendation

If time permits, we can go up to the Mother Teresa lookout.
