Why not? It is possible outside of the heated indoor baths as well! The temperature of Europe’s largest thermal lake is about as high as 30°C even in the autumn! In the early autumn weather, it is a really refreshing experience to swim in the warm water or to bathe at the beach. You don’t believe us? Try it yourself! It is not a coincidence that our frequent guests tend to choose the autumn months for their stay since they can still enjoy our bath when the beaches of Lake Balaton are already too cold to visit.
