Lake Hévíz is located in Hévíz, Hungary, near the western end of Lake Balaton, 8 kilometres (5 mi) from Keszthely.
It is the largest swimmable thermal lake in the world (47,500 square metres (511,286 sq ft) in area), second only to Frying Pan Lake in New Zealand, which is too hot for swimming. The flow of water is very strong and the water in the lake is completely replenished every 72 hours. Its minimum depth is 2 meters, reaching a maximum depth of 38 meters, exactly at the point where the hot thermal water comes out to the surface.

This is the biggest thermal lake in the world, in which you can swim. The infrastructure is covering everything you need, the spa is literally built on the top of the lake. You can buy a daily ticket, or even for 3-4 hours. Given that the hot water can be pretty exhausting, it is understandable. There are lockers inside, opened/closed with your electronic bracelet, so you can keep your belongings safe. On the lake, there is always a lifeguard in a boat, looking after the people. The water is warm, even in winter, of course, don't expect 36-38 Celsius, but around 28-30. The whole place is a miracle, if you have a few days, definitely good to be spent here.

Clean water, ducks swim, water lilies grow. Different options for visiting: single and season tickets. A towel, bathrobe and slippers are required. Swim more comfortable with a special circle. In open water, the temperature is about +27, in the closed +38. There is an underwater massage, free of charge, on a live turn. The skin on the face was flaky in the children. In the hospital next door there is a tap with drinking mineral water. From Heviz to Keszthely a path is laid through the forest, 3 km in one direction, it is very pleasant to walk. Tues., Thu. and Sat. There is a market, a mixture of food and flea. In general, not bad, but boring.

Very nice place to rest. The water outside is not really warm if the weather is cold. I would suggest to have thermal and wellness pass in case you get bored of being only in the thermal water.
