Spend a sunny morning at Zamárdi farmers’ market

The range of Zamárdi attractions make this one of the best spots along the southern shore of Lake Balaton, and you will definitely not get bored if you decide to spend your holiday here. Visiting the local farmers’ market, for example, is a great way to spend a lazy Sunday morning, and offers a truly unique experience. It takes place in the courtyard of Patkó Bistro, and all the vendors are local farmers and small-scale producers from Somogy County.

Naturally, you can’t leave the market empty-handed, and is difficult not to be tempted to buy something. Apart from all the fresh fruit and vegetables on offer, you will also have a choice of local flavours and specialties. After all, the best part of camping is that if the mood to cook something nice strikes you, you can pick up fresh ingredients from the local farmers’ market and cook something outdoors, have a roast over the campfire or enjoy a pleasant picnic.

Enjoy the ferry ride and visit Tihany Peninsula

There are plenty of Zamárdi attractions to choose from, but the list would not be complete without enjoying a boat ride on Lake Balaton. Once you’ve had your fill of taking in the views of the opposite shore from the beautiful beach at Mirabella Camping, why not visit neighbouring Szántód, hop on the ferry and cross the lake to Tihany Peninsula. The ferry leaves from Szántód, Zamárdi’s twin town, and you can board by car, bicycle or on foot. The trip itself is a great experience and not unlike a boat ride, as you will be treated to beautiful views of Lake Balaton during the crossing. And there is plenty to see and experience on the other side, as well.


Tihany Abbey

Tihany Peninsula is easy to reach from Zamárdi by taking the ferry, so there is really no excuse not to visit Tihany Abbey. The beautiful buildings tower over the lake and its rich historical tradition as well as the fantastic views of the lake it offers make it a uniquely attractive destination.
