Information about the water tour in Lajta

The Lajta River originates from the northeastern edge of the Alps and flows into the Mosoni-Danube at Mosonmagyaróvár. The circular tour starting from Itató beach and passing through the Lajta lock offers an exciting sightseeing tour, and then continues in the heart of the city after a lift.

Starting from the Itató beach, the tour goes down the Mosoni-Danube, then along the Lajta, it leads past the castle to the sluice, from where it continues on the Malom branch after the lift. The downtown section of Mosonmagyaróvár stretches from the Lajta lock through the Malom branch to the Mosoni-Danube.

This section meanders along the original route, which leads through the moat around the Old Castle and splits into several branches that also protected the city walls of Magyaróvár. During the tour, you can also discover excellent restaurants and cafes, where you can relax in the middle of rowing. Below the Főhercegi mill, there is a two-step boat slide that leads down about 1.5 meters, and the tour ends at the Mosoni-Danube bank, at the MVSE boathouse.
