Kisfaludy and the Stone Gate

The Rose Rock is a great starting point for an invigorating hike to the Kisfaludy lookout tower (437m) and, twenty minutes further north, the Stone Gate formed from two great basalt towers. Both points offer splendid views of the lake and the patchwork of Badacsony’s vineyards. If you fancy a plunge in the lake afterwards, it’s a 20-minute walk downhill. Badacsony has clean, paying beaches  – cross the railway tracks and Park utca to reach them.
