we are travelling from budapest and spending a few days travelling down by the lake, does anyone know which town is nearest the airport? just so we know where to base ourselves the night before we have to fly home.
Try this website - everything about the area, enjoy Balaton, it's great!
The closest international railway station is in Balatonszentgyörgy, which is 12 km far from FlyBalaton. Consult www.elvira.hu.
Scheduled bus can take you directly to the closest railway station. The bus stop is directly at the exit of Flybalaton Airport.
I had problems with this site -- could not get the map to display.
FlyBalaton Airport (IATA code: SOB) in Sarmellek is the nearest airport. Scheduled buses depart about 20 times a day from the bus stop in front of the airport to Keszthely, one of the pearls of the Balaton region. For schedules, check www.menetrendek.hu, then click on 'Volan menetrend'.
