Szigetköz

THE HEART OF THE DANUBE

Surrounded by the Danube and Mosoni-Danube, the Szigetköz, is the largest Hungarian island. Due to its central location along the river, its lively and endless labyrinth of small Danube branches and its extremely rich flora and fauna it is called the ‘Heart of Danube`. Lovers of canoeing and cycling can wander along the Danube-branches and quarry lakes fringed with forests. The varied, picturesque sceneries offer unforgettable experiences for visitors. Boat trips, exciting small bay beaches, horse-riding and jaunting car tours as well as fishing opportunities make Szigetköz a real paradise. Along the EV 6 - Danube Cycle Route (entering the area at Rajka border town) tourists can obtain information about Szigetköz at all service providers or at the mobility centre in Mosonmagyaróvár city. The abundant offers of accommodations in Szigetköz satisfy every demand, ranging from four-star castle hotel, wellness hotels and B&Bs to nature friendly quality campsites. Good restaurants offering local and international cuisine are also very popular.
