Within easy reach of Budapest’s city centre is a different world where nature still dominates, with forest cover and wildflower meadows inviting for a walk in the fresh air. Our route takes us across this unique terrain, connecting the most interesting spots and providing scenic views of the capital. The area is also an important nature reserve, designated for its rare plant and animal species, and famous for some of its rock features and giant old trees that we will introduce along the route. During the walk you will also hear about the history and the wildlife of this green periphery of the capital. A short ascent leads to the hilltop, providing a full panorama of the surrounding landscape from the viewing tower.
