When you leave the train station, you will find that there is only one street leading away from it. Don't be disheartened by the mundane architecture of the shops that fill the street, thinking you got off at the wrong station. Walk straight down Széchenyi utca for about 15 minutes until you run into Március 15 tér, where you will find a number of interesting buildings with history to share. Tourinform is located at Március 15 tér 17 (tel. 27/316-160; www.tourinformvac.hu). As they say, opening hours are "flexible" depending on tourist season. Claims are that the hours are 9am to 5pm weekdays, 10am to 2pm Saturday. My bet is that the tourism people close early when the season is over, although officially the hours are year-round. I don't cover places to stay since the town is small and conveniently located to Budapest. If you have a desire to stay overnight, check with Tourinform for information on accommodations.
