Nature trails

The nature trails and walks can be visited freely during the whole year and lead the hiker on signed routes. Interpretive boards provide information about the local natural and cultural heritage. Dogs are generally allowed to walk in the Balaton Uplands National Park. We recommend that you keep your dog on a lead when walking in forested areas of the national park so that your dog does not run away, chasing a roedeer or another wild animal. Please keep the dog on a lead especially when you are walking near wetlands, lakes, to protect waterfowl. Please do not let your dog swim in these waters. Our nature trails offer a good walking itinerary.
