Hungary has an estimated 1,300 thermal springs, a third of which are used at spas across the country. Hungary's thermal waters and spa culture are promoted to tourists. Only France, Japan, Iceland, and Italy have similar thermal water capacity.
Lake Hévíz is the largest biologically active natural healing lake in the world. Its temperature is the result of a mix of hot and cold spring waters breaking out of the ground. From the spring cave, 38 meters deep, 410 liters of water at 40°C are flushed out every second. The temperature of the lake on the surface reaches 37-38°C in summer and does not fall below 24-26°C in winter. It is suitable for bathing throughout the year.
The spa town of Hévíz is located in Zala County, in the south-western corner of Lake Balaton, eight kilometers from Keszthely and about 200 kilometers from Budapest, in a diverse natural landscape.
The now completely renovated downtown and the renewed Wellness and Therapeutic Center of the Lake Bath await those who wish to relax and recover every day of the year with high-quality services.
The Hévíz cure is excellent not only for healing but also for prevention, relaxation and recreation. There is also a wealth of wellness and healthy lifestyle options to choose from. The hotels of Hévíz offer a variety of spas and saunas, pampering massages, beauty treatments and a wide selection of healthy meals.
You can also find many excellent spa and thermal hotels in other cities of Hungary.
