European Quartet One Melody


The country is bound to satisfy cyclists, with marked tracks stretching over several thousand kilometres and plenty of places to hire bicycles. If you’re after a short ride during a break in Budapest, you might cycle along the Danube or into the Buda Hills. For those with more energy to burn, there are countless routes that could occupy a cyclist for weeks or months at a time – from the path around the edge of Lake Balaton to the undulating tracks through the forests of the Northern Uplands.

Golf is becoming increasingly popular, and several excellent courses have been built in recent years, including the Pannonia Golf and Country Club (25 miles west of Budapest) and the Birdland Golf and Country Club in Bükfürdő. Some even have hotels on site.

Less traditional pursuits you might try are dry bobsleighing (there are runs near Budapest, Visegrád, Veszprém and Miskolc-Tapolca), roller skating (places like Tiszaújváros have indoor rinks), paragliding (there is a centre at Balaton), go-karting, Nordic walking, paintballing, hot-air ballooning, various extreme sports and even rally racing.
