Révfülöp is a town in Veszprém county, Hungary, located on the northern shore of the Balaton. Révfülöp is well-known as the starting point for an annual long-distance swimming race across the Balaton to Balatonboglár.Révfülöp has existed since Medieval times, when it developed as a rév, or ferry crossing point, due to the proximity to the southern shore.
Further increases in boat and train traffic — Révfülöp sports a large railway station — have made the town a local commercial and professional center, with numerous specialty stores, restaurants, and hotels opening over the course of the 20th century as the number of vacationers increased. It was also during this time that the town was connected to the national telephone and electrical infrastructure.
Today, viticulture and the tourist-service sector are the two primary sources of employment. In 2001, the Millennium Lookout Tower was constructed on the mountain north of the town. The main historical attraction remains the old downtown and port, both featuring eclectic architecture evocative of the turn of the 19th to 20th century.
