The Berzsenyi lookout-tower in the Keszthely Mountains on the top of Petõ Hill was renovated in 2002. You can get there, to one of the best vista-points of this area, with a pleasant tour in the woods on foot, on a bike or even by car. From the tower in clear weather you can see almost the whole Transdanubia: the Keszthely-bay, the Zala Hills on west with the transmission towers in Zalaegerszeg and Nagykanizsa, on north-west the feet of the Alps. Even the Mecsek Mountains can be seen beyond the waving Somogy Hills on south, the chains of the mountains from Zengõ to Tubes and even the tower in Pécs are perceivable as well. The cache itself is a tupperware with blue lid and hidden near the lookout-tower at the foot of a tree, covered with leaf-mould and some bark.
You can start from Vonyarcvashegy on the red trial. From Highway 71 turn north to Cseri street, then Berzsenyi street, which continues in the woods from the end of the village, and that leads direct to the destination.
There is another way: the yellow trial which starts near from the Nagy-mezõ in Gyenesdiás. Turn north in the roundabout at JET petrol station, then take the first street on the right towards Nagy-mezõ. There is a short trial which connects Nagy-mezõ and the mine in Gyenesdás (you can find another cache there), but it's not drivable by car.
