After the strictly observed security measures, there has been news every day since May that a service provider has reopened their facilities or services in Hévíz.
HAPPY PEOPLE ON THE TERRACES OF RESTAURANTS
Now you can see people drinking coffee or wine in a fine mood on the terraces and in the indoor rooms of restaurants and cafés. The wine cellars of Egregy and the ice cream parlours have also been opened. You can have a set menu or choose from the a la carte menu, drink some wine in the evening or sit down for a slice of cake, ‘lángos’ (fried dough) or lemonade after bathing in the lake.
As usual, the Hévíz Farmers’ Market is open three times a week, where visitors and, of course, buyers can choose from the full range of products again.
HOLIDAYMAKERS AT THE ACCOMMODATION FACILITIES
On the shores of the pools of the hotels, guests are occupying more and more sunbeds, couples looking for relaxing wellness, fans of fit life, health tourists and families aiming to explore the area have arrived. The playgrounds and children’s pools are already full of laughter. At the buffets, the usual wide selection awaits the visitors, and in the wellness areas, freshly filled adventure pools and pools of medicinal water can be found. And the interest in private accommodation is even greater this summer.
PEOPLE WALKING TO THE LAKE WITH FOAM RUBBER RINGS CAN BE SEEN EVERYWHERE
Since the reopening of the Hévíz Lake Bath on 9th May, thousands of visitors have already enjoyed the refreshing and healing power of the hot water. In addition to being a unique natural medicinal lake in the world, it is now a clear attraction of Lake Hévíz that on the 4.4 hectares of water surface and in the park and beach surrounding the lake you can enjoy bathing and relaxing in 32-34°C hot water completely without crowdedness.
At Whitsun, the changing rooms of the Main Entrance on Dr Schulhof Vilmos Promenade opened. They had been completely renovated during the winter, so they are now more spacious, colourful, and practical. Since 21st May, the indoor pools and relaxation areas can also be used again, so the windy, overcast weather cannot be an obstacle to a pleasant splash in Hévíz. The drinking fountain in the hospital building will be open to the public again.
IT IS WORTH BOOKING AN APPOINTMENT FOR A GOOD MASSAGE IN ADVANCE
It is worth making an appointment for a massage with wellness service providers again, and the ladies and gentlemen also arrive one after the other at the hairdressers. There is a lot of interest in healthcare service providers again; dentists, opticians and beauty salons are open again. Local stores constantly receive new summer stocks.
THE WITCH OF HÉVÍZ’S SKELETON CAN BE SEEN AGAIN IN EGREGY
On 22nd May, the museums of Hévíz reopened, the exhibitions can be visited again, and the churches of the town can be viewed from the inside.
IDEAL LOCATION FOR ACTIVE RECREATION
The open-air leisure facilities have been operating since the beginning of May, so you can also visit the playgrounds, sports fields, and fitness parks. The Tavirózsa Adventure Park awaits its guests and the largest hot air balloon and gyrocopter in the country fly again. There are guided Segway tours again and players are welcomed to the golf course.
Renovated and improved city and touring bikes await those who would rent a bike, and this year, the offer of the Tourinform Office has even been expanded with brand new electric bikes.
