Attractions in the region

The region Szigetköz contains of several beautiful parts. We should start our round trip of the Szigetköz in Feketeerdő (5 km from Mosonmagyaróvár). This is a settlement embraced from three sides by the Moson Danube. Its name comes from the dense forest and swampy area. These characteristics kept away the Turks and the Tartars. The plague epidemic raged in the village in 1730. Since then it is gradually being inhabited again. The number of inhabitants reaches almost 500. The Roman Catholic church was built in the XIX. century. It is the oldest building in the village. There is also a wildlife park near the village. You can see original Hungarian species like the Hungarian grey cattle here. If you long for something really special we recommend you to visit Mr Csaba Grózer. He is a specialist craftsman of the ancient Hungarian bow.

Dunakiliti Feketeerdő
Dunakiliti Feketeerdő

The name of the settlement Dunakiliti (8 km from Mosonmagyaróvár) could have several origins. It comes either from the Turk "kiliti" meaning key, or it was the name of its owner, or it was named after the pope Cilit. Dunakiliti is situated on the furthest point to the north of the Szigetköz region. It is an area characterized by important industry and agriculture. The main road of the village was earlier the bed of the Danube. It is an ever developing village. Currently it has 1740 inhabitants and many foreigners have also bought land here. The community centre of the village was recently renovated. The area was the property of the Batthyány family. They purchased it in the beginning of the XIX century. László Batthyányi-Strattmann also called the "doctor of the poor" was raised here. Nowadays the castle houses the school. You can see a memorial room dedicated to him. In 1977 Czechoslovakia and Hungary signed an agreement to build a barrage and a common dam lake on the Danube river. In 1978 work was started on the project. The aim was to build a power plant in Nagymaros. This plant would have regulated the water level in Szigetköz area. Following the change of regime in 1989 work was suspended in Nagymaros. The pretext was that the plant would disturb the natural environment and ecological balance of the area. The Slovak partner decided to continue and finish the building. The power plant at Bős was temporarily put into operation. The Slovak partner diverted the Danube on 25th of October 1992 between the settlements Rajka and Szab. They started the building works on the Danube channel. This fact completely changed the river regime in Szigetköz. The water level decreased significantly. In 1995 work was started on the ground sill. The aim was to be able to regulate the water level. For those of our guests who prefer active recreation we would recommend to visit the Pogány castle. You can practice golf here on the 14 hectares area of the 9 hole golf pitch. There is a separate club house for golfers. The clubhouse has a drink bar and locker rooms as well. Professional golf trainers are also available here to teach you the basics of golf, or to help you reach a higher level of your golf knowledge. You can also have a carriage tour around Dunakiliti, but a canoe tour is also an excellent choice.

We should continue our trip to Dunasziget (13 km from Mosonmagyaróv). Dunasziget was created from the settlements Cikolasziget, Doborgazsziget and Sérfenyősziget in 1969. Following the rehabilitation of the flood plain a fish ladder was built at Denkpál. The slow stream of the water makes this an ideal place for fishermen and for everybody who prefers swimming in natural flowing waters. It is worth to visit the art gallery of Varga György. Hungary's most modern sand map was inaugurated here in 2005. You can have a horse back ride or carriage ride in Dunasziget too, but if you would like to spend your holiday experiencing really extreme adventures then we recommend you the paintball pitch in Sérfenyősziget. For our youngest guests we would recommend a visit to the local goat farm where they can taste goat cheese and get acquainted with the animals.

The village of Halászi (5 km form Mosonmagyaróvár) was the most important provider of fresh fish for the people of Mosonmagyaróvár. The baroque church was built in 1777. The fresco of the church was painted by students of the famous Franz Anton Maulbertsch. The master did not sign the works but painted the same thorn branches as he painted in the Basilica of Győr. St Martin is the protector of the village.

The "blooming" of the Thermal bath of Lipót (18 km Mosonmagyaróvártól) started when the Petőfi agricultural cooperative started to grow different species of flowers on this territory. In 1967 thermal water was found. At first it was used for heating the green houses. At the time of its inauguration the thermal bath had only two pools. Later it became what is today the Thermal Bath of Lipót. In 2002 important modernization was performed and a sauna was created in an old water mill. The opening hours are depending on the season but on weekends there are all day long programmes. The programmes are free of charge. The baroque church was built in 1777. It has only one tower. It was renovated in 2004. The church has one nave with side-altars. The village is famous for its football pitch. The football pitch has thermal water heating.

Lipót Hédervár
Lipót Hédervár

The church of the Holy Virgin Mary is one of the most important buildings in Hédervár (18 km from Mosonmagyaróvár). The church was rebuilt by Katalin Hédervári in the XV century. The church guards the burial place of many family members. There are cinerary urns that contain the hearts of the women family members. The Loretto chapel erected here was the first of its kind in Hungary. The Árpád oak tree is in front of the chapel. It is 15 metres high, its circumference is 210 cm and it is 700 years old. The castle of Hédervár was erected by István Hédervári. Later it belonged to the Vicai family. They rebuilt it in 1775. This is when it was turned into a three storey high building and the quadrangular towers were built. Inside the castle is a two storey high chapel. The castle has a beautiful park as well. The garden is famous for the two ash trees that form an H. The porcelain manufacture of Herend also paid its tribute to the Hedervári family by making a special colour that is called today Hédervári colour. If you still feel like wandering you should visit the Kont tree. They say that each time one of the members of the Kont family dies this tree loses one of its branches. There are only three sculptures in Hungary that reproduce an insect. One of these sculptures is in Hédervár and it reproduces a Colorado beetle.

Lébény (24 km from Mosonmagyaróvár) is the gateway to the Hanság region. The Benedictine Catholic church of St James the apostle built in roman style is world famous. Its constructors created a perspicuous, articulated building made up of elementary geometric forms. From the west the towers join the cascaded body of the main and side naves, from the east the semi-cylinders of the sanctuary. The roof is equally determined by basic geometry; the current steeples date from the 19th century. The bare, rather stern surface of the main facade contrast strongly with the sculpted columns of the main porch with their fine tracery and floral ornamentation, with their leaf-bud capitals and the heads personifying Good and Evil. Typical for the southern porch, which once led towards the monastery, are stricter motifs suggested by geometry, the so-called Norman moulding ornamentation.
The Benedictine abbey was founded in 1208. Benedictine monks moved to Pannonhalma from here.
