Take a tour on one of the most romantic and cleanest rivers of Hungary, on the Drava. In the previous decades the very vicinity of the Drava was not permitted to be visited because of the closeness of the border, this way the values of nature remained intact. Danube-Drava National Park reveals the wonder of untouched nature to its visitors.
Has the question: ″But where are the vineyards here?″ ever come to your mind? Well, if you are interested in the answer, take part in the guided tour organised by the Danube-Drava National Park. As Szársomlyó is a (highly protected) nature reserve, it can only be visited with guidance. Among the more than 70 protected plant species growing here Hungarian Colchicum is possibly the most well-known botanical curiosity of the hill. From the top of the hill there is a wonderful view onto the vineyards of Villány and the fisheries of Palkonya.

While cycling/walking towards Villány it is worth stopping for a walk on the ammonites nature trail starting 500 m away from the train station of Villány. On the top of Templom-hegy (Church-hill) a lookout tower was also built, so even the view itself is an attractive aim for a walk (about 45-60 minutes).
