The Balaton Cycle Route is a system of cycle paths around Lake Balaton, which can be used to cycle around the lake, and is therefore also called the Balaton Cycle Route. It also has several additional sections, such as the Sió Canal cycle path. The Balaton Cycle Route consists of asphalt cycle paths in some parts and public roads suitable for cycling in others. The total length is 204.44 km.

Hiking trails in Balatonalmádi
Red sandstone nature trail
In Balatonalmádi, the Red Sandstone trail, marked with a "Blue Triangle", is about 6 km long and takes about two hours to complete. In this time, although you will be pleasantly tired, you can learn about the present and the past of the town. During the tour, a map and the route description will help you to become part of a world long gone. You will discover the surprising, interesting and sometimes magical past of the city's present-day buildings.

The Lake Köcsi nature trail
The trail is on the outskirts of Káptalanfüred, on the shore of Lake Köcsi. It was created in the context of the landscaping of the abandoned red sandstone mine and the former clay mine. The area of the pond was annexed to Balatonalmádi in 1982 and is now part of Káptalanfüred. The locals like to compare Káptalanfüred to a rock garden, with its wildlife, clean air and balanced climate, which provides favourable conditions. The most notable of the natural geological features is the red stone. The mining of redstone in our region flourished in the first half of the 20th century, as can be seen from the coastal defences, retaining walls, valley bridges, gravestones and monuments.
The trail is a 400 m long walk, with 4 stations where you can get a taste of the natural values of the lake area: the red sandstone fauna, the rocks revealing the ancient river banks of the 250 million year old pebbles and sandstone. Next to the rest area you will see a sign about the life of the small lake. Then we find the redstone memorial bench of the 2002 national meeting of hikers.
Built in 1935 from Perm redstone, the 298-metre-high lookout tower offers a magnificent view of Lake Balaton, the Bakony and the Balaton highlands.
The Remete stream, which originates from a spring in three places, flows towards Lake Balaton, sometimes open, sometimes covered. It enters the lake under the so-called Bridge of Sighs near the pier. The name of the spring is based on local tradition. The green lane hiking trail runs alongside the spring, and following it towards Lake Balaton you can take the Red Sandstone Trail, marked with a blue triangle.
