The 50 hectares of the Chateau park, created at the end of the 19th century to plans by  landscape designer János Hain, prize winner at the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1884, is itself classed as a historical monument and includes a large number of rare species: Greek white fir, wild chestnut, black pine, red beech, yew, Turkish hazel, hornbeam, weeping willow, oak....

The river Gaja is famous for the purity of its water throughout the  Bakony hills. It crosses the former hunting grounds of the Károlyi family (still in use), of which a part has been made into a hiking trail enjoyed by many tourists, the starting point being on the edge of the village.

 

Flora and fauna

The Gaja valley is rich in moisture, which encourages the vegetation’s exuberant growth.  The river’s meanders are exposed to the sunshine,  so clumps of virgin forest spring up here and there.  To the sides of the hiking trail stretch the impressive hunting grounds created in 1888 by Count Gyula Károlyi ,son of the builder of the chateau and stocked with large game:deer, mouflon, wild boar of species unique in Hungary.  Small game is not absent either and innumerable types of birds.  Finally, a number of small lakes await fishing enthusiasts.
