after party of cs in balaton lake
Posted June 23rd, 2008 - 12:30 am by from Berlin, Germany (Permalink)

wouldnt it be great to chill on the balaton lake after a crazy week of dancing ???

after the party is over in budapest we will meet for one or 2 nights in the balaton lake. i am not hungarian and this is why i think that maybe they should help deciding on the specific place (the lake is big).

just be sure that you should bring:

good mood
tent (or just sleeping bag)
drinks (as much as possible)
swimming suit (maybe better without)
food
musical instruments (if you have)

### hope that we can also make a small fire there at night


i will post another headline when we will know the best spot to make it.


ps:

some of you come from far far away .. dont you wanna see a little bit more of what hungary has to offer?!

it would be a real good idea, but I don't know yet if I'll come with a car or by bus

i make part of the french forum of the sziget festival (it is a big family) and it's a tradition to go at the lake after (even if the last year i couldn't) so i will be there but it is the greatest lake of europ and so i don't know exactly the place of this after.

I will definitelly come to Balaton lake after Sziget. Chillaxing sounds great. I can take sleeping bag but I prefer a wooden cottage or hostel as I won't carry a tent. Do you have any idea yet which village or town?

Viva la Sziget!

Hej!
I am not coming to Balaton, but I have been there in I think 04 before or after Sziget and I stayed at Siofok. I would not go there again. It was full of groups of students under 18/20, but if you are very young you might enjoy the place. It is definitely a party town.
Cheers,
Iris.

We're going to be attending the festival on the 14th and 15th of August, and afterwards drive to Balaton on the 16th to meet up with Ofer's family.

We'll definitely attend anything fun and CS related in the Balaton area post-Sziget... :)

Hey Aviel,

check out this one, it may help! I heard good things about Révfülöp and Ábrahámhegy, but I guess you'll find many more.

Good luck!

When Sziget is finishing?

Hey All,

I suggest you go to the southern shore. Though the water is quite shallow there and you would need to walk quite a lot to be able to swim, it is still worth it for the view you get from the south. My favourite places in the south: Balatonföldvár, Balatonszárszó, Balatonszemes, Szántód and Balatonfenyves. These are smaller places than Siófok. (I do not suggest you go there either.) I grew up in Balatonszárszó and Balatonföldvár. I think the latter is the most beautiful of these. I think I will go there after Sziget.
