Hiking – Nagy-Eged Mountain
Even from a long distance it is obvious that the mountain towering above the city of Nagy-Eged provides an excellent outing opportunity. Nature lovers will especially enjoy this pleasant walking tour, passing along side vineyards, taking 20 minutes from the city centre to reach the 901 metre high point. This is Hungary's highest wine-growing area and the view is appropriately breathtaking. Southwards you can see the infinite horizon of the Great Plains. Hungary's largest mountain, the Kékestető peaks to the west, and to the north you can see Bükk Hegy (Beech Mountain), and lying seemingly at your feet, looking like a model of a town, is Eger.
