A diverse tour taking us to popular and less known parts of South Börzsöny, with several lookout spots where we can enjoy the Magas-Börzsöny panorama with its characteristic hills and the exceptional beauty of the Danube Bend.
It is not an accident that the Danube Bend is one of the most popular trekking destinations of Hungary. This unique environment is visited by many during the weekends: Some go by car, some take the tourist boat and others choose to cycle there, but if we want to see all the beauty it offers, we will want to explore it on foot. This 18-km-long tour leading from Kismaros to Nagymaros will take us to some less known lookout spots of the Danube Bend, introduces the diverse landscape of South Börzsöny to us with its gentle slopes and romantic wilderness, and not only reveals the beauty of nature, but some historical curiosities as well.
The overall ascent of the route is just over 400 metres, and we will mostly walk on conveniently wide dirt roads - but it will lead us to the most beautiful parts on smaller paths with a unique atmosphere. It is well worth abandoning our original route every once in a while for a stunning panorama, a historical curiosity or some refreshments in the guest house of Törökmező. And the cherry on top could be a nice swim in the cool water in Nagymaros if we take the tour in high summer, or any other relaxing and entertaining activity of the many that the town offers us after a day of walking.
A few short sections of the route are steep and difficult to walk on. In dry weather the gravel might crumble and roll off under our feet, and on rainy days the slippery mud might make our hike difficult on the steep path. Be careful, and always check the weather forecast before leaving for this tour.
