Go through 6 roundabouts, always towards Balatonfüred, then after passing the 95 km sign, take the first right turn (you will see the Funside Balaton sign by the road). Keep driving for another 50 metres, then you will see members of our staff, ready to assist you with parking.

From Keszthely: exit the town towards Gyenesdiás/Balatonfüred, and start driving on Route 71 towards Balatonfüred. After passing the 95 km sign, take the first right turn (you will see the Funside Balaton sign by the road). Keep driving for another 50 metres, then you will see members of our staff, ready to assist you with parking.

From Balatonfüred: exit the town and start driving on Route 71 towards Keszthely. After passing the 94 km sign and the Imperial Golf Club, take the first left turn (you will see the Funside Balaton sign by the road).

By air, individually:

If you are travelling to the camp by plane, please let us know about your flight details as soon as possible, so that we can help by arranging airport transfers to the camp.

Balaton-Heviz Airport: if you are travelling via the Balaton-Heviz Airport (closest to the camp – 27 km; available flights), then you can take our regular bus transfer to the camp (need to sign up in advance). Please mark this option on your sign up form if you are interested and we will send you the latest information and details.

Budapest Airport: you may also travel via the Budapest Airport (largest international airport in the area; available flights). We can send transfers to the airport from the camp but the minimum number of passengers is 5 per trip (we can group you with other children coming to the camp, if you arrive at about the same time). Please mark this option on your sign up form if you are interested and we will send you the latest information and details. Extra accommodation: in case your flight gets here a day earlier or leaves a day later, then an extra night of accommodation at the camp is possible.

Budapest bus transfer: campers have the option to travel in a group, supervised by our teachers, from Budapest to the camp venue and back, by bus.  Advance sign-up is necessary: if you would like to join a group, please kindly mark this option on your sign-up form. The group, supervised by our teachers, will be joining a scheduled public long distance bus service on the Budapest – Keszthely (Lake Balaton) distance, then taking Funside’s own bus transfer from Keszthely to the camp. On the way back, the group is taking the scheduled bus line all the way from the camp to Budapest. We will notify all signed up campers 2 to 3 weeks before their chosen week, about the specific details and itinerary.

If you are travelling by train individually, we can arrange to pick you up at the ‘Becehegy’ station between 11 am and 2 pm on the first day of your stay. Please notify us of your arrangements at least two weeks in advance.
