Etyek-Buda Wine District

1. day tour

In the morning, take a stroll among the hundred-year-old cellars on the Páty cellar hill. One houses a tiny French-style café-breakfast spot, where, of course, you can also taste wines from the wine district. Then visit the ruined church and the Lamp Museum in Zsámbék. The cellar row continues in Tök, and from here, you can even walk to the village’s modern winery. After lunch, continue to Budajenő, whose ancient church on Calvary Hill dates back to the 12th century. The stone carving which can be seen above the sacristy inside the chapel and probably depicts the donor couple was made at this time. In Budajenő, you can also visit a small local cellar, where the young couple are always ready to welcome you for some wine tasting, accompanied by delicious snacks. It’s worth booking accommodation in Zsámbék or Telki.


2. day tour

Do a tour around Lake Velence! The best way is to hop on a bike and pedal round the lake, stopping here and there for some sightseeing and a glass of wine. Enjoy a delicious fish soup in Gárdony, while the palinka distillery in Agárd is a good reason to take a break.

The area around the lake conceals various interesting sites, such as the Mihály Vörösmarty Memorial Museum in Kápolnásnyék and the Géza Gárdonyi Memorial House in Agárd, but there are also plenty of attractions on the northern side of the lake. You can even shorten the trip by taking your bike on the ferry from Agárd to the opposite island, where you can have lunch in the inn there. From here, the Pákozd-Sukoró Arboretum is just a stone’s throw away, while the Military Memorial Park is not far either. What’s more, if you pedal up to the Bence Hill Lookout Tower, an amazing panorama will unfold before your eyes.

End the day with a swim at one of the beaches on the southern shore, before having dinner in a restaurant among the vineyards in Pázmánd and visiting local winemakers for some wine tasting.
