Orfű lies in a valley of the North-Western Mecsek. At nature’s will and thanks to human efforts, this is the area which has formed itself in about half a century into an excitingly diverse, yet consistent tourist district known far and wide.
Where water reigns
Visitors to Orfű might often feel that water is omnipresent in the area. A sinkhole here, a forest spring there, and crystal clear creeks tend to trickle along the marked hiking trails. With such characteristics, it’s no wonder that bathing is a core experience in this area. If you would like to swim and bathe, Kis-tó beach is the best choice for you, with its sandy lake bed.
You can also encounter water-related experiences at Spring House hiding in the tree canopy, and which at first sight looks like a spaceship. It’s connected to the cave of Vízfő Spring, driving one of the wheels of the Mill Museum to this very day. The nature trail leading here runs along the creek of this spring on wooden planks. Should you seek true curiosities, visit the House of Mecsek, and sign up for one of the adventurous cave hikes, dressed in spelunkers’ overalls.
