Days trips in the region

Temperature

Woods and hills – you are forgiven if you don’t expect to come across these geographical features on Alföld (the Great Plain).  Interestingly, it may still be worth your while to look, given that the “shack of the vákáncsos” (poor abode dug in the ground), “Devil’s Trench", as well as the hills of the puszta are all found in Debrecen’s Erdőspuszta (Wooded Plains). 

The leafy semicircle of Debrecen’s Erdőspuszta surrounds the city at a distance of some 10 km to the east. Popular with nature lovers, this resting and recreation area features hiking trails, cycle paths, observation points, playgrounds, an exhibit house and arboretum as well as picnic, camping, and fishing facilities.

Your Debrecen sightseeing tour may well yield other unforgettable experiences if you use the city as a launching pad for further outings. A mere half-hour drive from Debrecen can be found Hajdúszoboszló with Europe’s largest spa complex and the UNESCO World Heritage Site Hortobágy National park. Further experiences await you in Tiszafüred, the capital of Lake Tisza and if you have more time to spare, two other UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Tokaj wine region and the caves of the Aggtelek Karst are also woth a visit.
