A great variety of routes and landscapes...

EuroVelo 14 provides easy access to Lake Balaton, the largest freshwater lake in Central Europe. Right after crossing the Hungarian border, the route leads across the scenic landscapes of Őrség National Park and goes through a nice hilly region of Western Hungary. Small and cosy villages, folklore, vineyards, and spas can be seen along the way before getting to Lake Balaton. The lake is a famous vacation resort with many - and also cycling-friendly - accomodation, bathing possibilties, and all sort of restaurants from street food to fine dining. The section between Balaton and the capital city is a newly built route offering perfect conditions for cycling. Budapest, the city on the Danube, is famous for its thermal baths, restaurants, historical monuments, and cool ambiance. Going at the foot of Hungary’s highest mountain ranges, the route then continues to Eger, with a fortress of historical importance. Descending to flat areas, cyclists can enjoy the Lake Tisza cycle path with its cycling bridges, and the Hortobágy National Park, before arriving at Debrecen, second-most populated city in Hungary.

Between Budapest and Gödöllő, cycle tourists are advised to take the train as no recommended cycle route is available in this area at the moment. Trains leave every 30 minutes from Keleti station in the city centre. Both public transport services can be planned using the MÁV (Hungarian State Railways) website and app.
