Romantic getaway in mountains or by lake

Hello my wife and I are taking a 3 week Europe trip and concluding by flying out of Budapest. It will be a busy 3 weeks and I was hopinig to find a nice place to relax ideally in the mountains but by a lake might be nice too. We would be coming from Vienna/Bratslavia area and after our romatic getaway we would be leaving from Budapest. Any recomendations on areas or hotels?

Thanks

Well, Budapest has neither mountains nor lakes, so...

Hungary is flat, you know. We have some hills, and fishing ponds.

You could try a hotel in the Danube bend, maybe this?:

You would probably enjoy the hotel in Lillafured. It looks like a castle, is up in the mountains and is right next to a lake.

Both of these hotels look great!

How would I be able to get to these hotels by bus or train from Vienna/Bratslavia area? Or from Budapest?

Thanks

For Lillafured you simply take the train to Miskolc and then the local bus. Very easy.

From your original request I would also recommend the hotel in Lillafured. It's a beautiful area.

Thank you!

Regarding the train it seems each country has multiple different websites to buy tickets from which is the best and cheapest or is it the same price to buy in person?

If you come from Bratislava, consider Visegrád, since it lies on the train route: just get off at Nagymaros-Visegrád and use the ferry to get to the other side of the Danube.

However this area, a canyon of the Danube is not so romantic as Lillafüred but it is scenic, ideal for walks on the hills and enjoy the views from some hilltops. From Visegrád you can get to Budapest by boat which is also a great experience.

The best appreciated hotel (rather comfortable than romantic): http://thv.hu/en/
