Getting there and parking

The Balatoni Museum welcomes visitors in Keszthely at Múzeum utca 2. Once you are in Keszthely, the Museum is very easy to reach on foot. From the main square in the heart of the town, you should start walking on Kossuth Street in the opposite direction from the pedestrian street leading to the Festetics Castle. You are about a 10-minute walk away, and the characteristic building of the Museum can be easily seen from afar.

More information: if you arrive by bus, train or car.
