About Balatonalmádi

Balatonalmádi is a resort of picturesque beauty on the northern shore of Lake Balaton, the largest lake in Central Europe. Its seven-kilometre-long coastline is surrounded by varied ranges of hills and slopes, offering the town a unique, amphitheatre-like geographical location.
For Balatonalmádi, it is above all tourism at Lake Balaton that represents the chief driving force of progress and the attraction that keeps residents in place. Accommodation is available at many thousands of bed and breakfast places, as well as pensions, campsites and lakeside hotels. Hungry and thirsty guests are awaited at excellent inns and restaurants with tasty food and local wines, both on the shore and on top of Öreghegy. In the high season not a single day passes without a cultural programme or some other form of entertainment.

Lovers of swimming and sun worshippers can pursue their favourite pastime at a number of public beaches. The lake offers excellent opportunities for sailers, surfers and anglers as well. Those who like nature and hiking can walk along the trail called Vörös Homokkő (Red Sandstone) passing by the lookout at Óvár. They can also walk in the beautifully tended Öregpark or wander in Malomvölgy (valley) along marked paths in the forests surrounding the town and can take delight in the beauty of the landscape.

About Balaton

Lake Balaton, or the Balaton, is a freshwater lake in the Transdanubian region of Hungary. It is the largest lake in Central Europe, and one of its foremost tourist destinations. The mountainous region of the northern shore is known both for its historic character and as a major wine region. The average water temperature during the summer is 25°C (77 F), which makes bathing and swimming popular on the lake. Most of the beaches consist of either grass, rocks, or the silty sand that also makes up most of the bottom of the lake. Many resorts have artificial sandy beaches and all beaches have step access to the water. Other tourist attractions include sailing, fishing, and other water sports, as well as visiting the countryside and hills, wineries.

History of Drupalaton

This is the seventh time in a row that Hungarian drupalists are organizing a camp in Hungary, and the fourth time organized as an international event. After having a legendary event last summer in Keszthely, in a beautiful city at Lake Balaton, we would love to share again the experience of a perfect combination of session, workshops and having fun with other Drupalist. Now at a different location.
