Winding in the floodplain

As cycling enthusiasts well know, there's no better way to discover an area's hidden treasures than in the saddle. The Szigetközi floodplain offers an exceptional opportunity for all those who want to explore one of the most beautiful and wild parts of the Danube. Starting from Dunasziget, you can discover sights that are both fabulous and impressive by taking a tour.


Description of the tour

Start from Dunasziget, where one of the most significant attractions is the oldest and largest willow tree in the area, which impresses passers-by with its huge trunk circumference of 930 cm. Afterwards, the black poplar tree of similar size at Kőhíd is also worth a stop. Continuing your journey from Kőhíd, crossing the largest island of the flood plain, you pass through a beautiful meadow until you reach the first fish ladder in Hungary. Here you can even admire the fish swimming through a window.

Heading towards the Old Danube, you can cycle along the banks of the Old Danube all the way to the hermitage harbor on the Danube, where you will also find the Danube boat monument. The next stop leads to Lipó, where you can relax in the glass cafe and watch the bakers go to work and enjoy the smell and taste of fresh baked goods.

You can also discover the natural treasures of the area, for example the birdwatching on the banks of the Dead-Danube, where observing different species of birds is a fascinating experience. In the Tündérsziget Ökopark, there is a community medicinal and herb garden, as well as an interactive exhibition presenting the natural values of the Szigetköz. The underwater ambush here offers a special opportunity to look into the depths of the Danube.

After a lunch in Hédervár, where you can find a fairytale-like castle and park, as well as the country's oldest 800-year-old oak tree in the courtyard of the Blessed Virgin Mary's Chapel. Heading back to Dunaremet, the Dodó Game Farm offers a spectacular observation opportunity for roe deer, deer and wild boar.
