Lake Tisza – where active recreation takes centre stage

The Lake TiszaDebrecen and surroundings

We have good news for sports enthusiasts: the area around Lake Tisza offers a plethora of recreation opportunities to choose from. Definitely not to be missed is the 70-kilometre bike path built around Lake Tisza, considered the safest in the country.

The flat track, easy to complete even at a slow pace, is the country’s longest cycle route and the EuroVelo 11 international cycle route network also passes through the region. What’s more, you will have a fascinating view throughout your bike ride. Spend some time at the Fish Stairs of Kisköre during your tour. Here, you can observe the movements of migratory fish through viewing windows, while the sound of the trickling water helps leave the greyness of everyday life completely behind. Get the whole family to go cycling: you can even shorten the route around Poroszló and Tiszafüred. In the summer, take a dip at one of the popular local beaches. One example is in Sarud, home to Central Europe’s largest Aquaglide Water Playground and the largest open air Trampoline Park in Hungary, which children are sure to love. Here, you can even hop onto a horse, thanks to the local Riding Centre. The charming little villages of the area are known for their hospitality, so sample some local culinary specialities at one of the many eateries.


Don’t fret if you don’t have a bike, as they are available to rent for the whole family at the Lake Tisza Cycling Centre in Tiszafüred. In fact, if you get tired midway, they’ll even help you get back home.



Take a dip at a free beach

Country folk have long known the benefits of water on the state of mind. Find your favourite from among the several charming free beaches that have developed around Lake Tisza over many years. If you arrive with small children, the slowly steeping shores of Poroszló and Tiszafüred will be perfect, but if you’re after some adventure, opt for Abádszalók, which bustles all summer and offers an abundance of exciting water sports.
