  • Plenty of things to see, beautiful landscapes, ideal place to explore by bike too !
  • The best way to appreciate this lovely area is on foot or, like I did, by bicycle. Pretty villages, glorious vistas and abundant nature make this a relaxing and rewarding place to visit. The roads are largely free of heavy traffic though the signposting for the Orseg 2 bike trail which I tried to follow was rather erratic. I somehow ended up on the busy Route 86 which is on the east side of the area and it was not pleasant!
  • I like the place a lot. Full of natural beauty, you can walk or ride a bike and enjoy the national park.
  • Must see when you are in South Hungary
  • Őrség is an incredibly beautiful place with special cultural heritage.
