City Park Water Tower

This building has been renovated to provide as many services and as much entertainment as an actual water tower can. Obviously, it is a lookout tower, but it is also home to exhibitions and musical events. You will find a wine bar and a climbing wall, while the light show in the evening is an added bonus.

A walk in the City Park of Debrecen

The City Park is the place you must visit if you are in the largest market town on the Hungarian Great Plain. The green lungs of the town are very popular with both tourists and locals. It lies close to the centre of town and its safe and modern playgrounds offer great fun for kids, while the whole family will enjoy the beauty and harmony of the forest and its promenades.

During your visit


The smell and taste of the wild fruit makes this pure distillate truly special. Sloe berries are rare, and the ones that grow around Sárrét are particularly fragrant and aromatic. The pálinka is made with the traditional process called ‘kisüsti’, which uses copper kettles.


‘Goulash’ in Hungarian means a dish and also a profession, i.e. cowherd. It’s not just a profession, though. It’s a vocation. The king of Hungarian dishes is made on an open fire, and was the favourite dish of the cowherds and horse-herds living in Hortobágy. It tastes of freedom.
