“relaxed and nice ice-cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

we had a walk along the main path so i'm not sure if we missed anything which may hav been of interest.

it is known as "the great forest", and feels like it too when you enter, but it is actually just a park which I think should be accessible to most people; we had no problems with our pram.

it is a beautiful place, and there is plenty of shade from the trees to protect u from the sun.

worth a visit to see the pretty little lake and lily pads... and the yummy ice-cream. the mojito one was lovely.

“Herdsmen Highlight in Hortobagy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

The Mata Stud Program takes an hour and a half and gives you an insight into Hungary's past. Well worth a trip if you are in the area.

“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

We spent a wonderful day in Hortobagy and would recommend it to to travels spending enough time in Hungary that they are willing to head out of Budapest and see more sights. Hortobagy is on the "Great Hungarian Plains," in rich farming country just half an hour or so from Debrecen. Based on the reviews in Tripadvisor, we thought we might spend an hour looking around. Instead, we spend the whole day on a series of quite reasonably priced adventures. For a ticket that was about $7.00 (US) per person, we gained entrance to 3 musuems, a wild animal safari park, and a domestic animal park. Each sight was impressive. We learned a lot from the experience, saw exotic animals original to the region, and ate a wonderful lunch at the antique Hortobagy csarda. If you have time to deviate from the main tourist attractions in Eastern Europe and are interested in the ancient ways of life on the great plains, you will love Hortobagy.
