Start the day at the southeastern tip of the wine district, in Kaposvár, a town built on seven hills. The town’s leisure pool, Virágfürdő, is great fun in both summer and winter, the Rippl-Rónai Villa built on Rome Hill is one of the country’s most beautiful museums, while the Gergely Csiky Theatre awaits its esteemed audience not only with its beautiful Art Nouveau building but also with its nationally acclaimed company. This is so much the case that if you can book your accommodation in Kaposvár, then it’s worth checking out its theatrical performances as your evening entertainment! After lunch, visit the Deseda Adventure Forest, or Kalanderdő, then the István Fekete Visitor Centre and if you have some time left, you won’t be disappointed by the Szenna open-air museum, from where you can visit the Zselic Star Park after dinner and discover the wonders of the universe, providing the weather is clear. Stay the night in Kaposvár.
Heading north from Kaposvár, stop off for a dip at the Igal Spa in the morning, have lunch in Bonnya and then visit Somogydöröcske for its beautifully preserved Swabian folk architecture.

Start the day at the Sphere Lookout (Gömbkilátó) in Balatonboglár, where you can admire one of the southern shore’s most beautiful panoramas, then, if you like, you can try out the summer toboggan run in the neighbouring adventure park. Visit the eastern part of the wine district, setting off from the Kakpuszta terminus of the Mesztegnyő light railway and walking along the Tőzike educational trail or in the footsteps of the Lost Steppes.
