The weather is getting colder and the Hungarian landscape is getting more special. This is one more reasons for real adventurers to put on the boots and go on hiking. There are plenty of beautiful places in Hungary which are worth visiting even in the winter. Femcafe collected four locations which would be a mistake to miss.

  1. Velem

Velem is located in one of the most beautiful parts of Hungary, the western part of Vas County, at the foot of Kőszeg Mountains. It is a real haven of peace for those who would like to leave the noises of the city behind and rest a bit. It is worth visiting Írottkő from here, which is the highest point of Transdanubia, and has excellent walkways for the ones choosing more active relaxation.

  1. Gemenc

A popular destination among couples and families with younger children. The real magic of this area is given by the harmony of the meetings of forests and waters. The romantic and wild Gemenc forests are best to cross with the forestry railway. The train takes us through a 20 kilometres long road, next to many walk ways and playgrounds, to discover the hidden treasures of nature. Moreover, if we are open-eyed enough we can see deer and boars during our trip.
