Welcome to Debrecen!


Great Forest’s New Lookout Tower

Located in the heart of the Great Forest, the playground is a spot loved by kids of all ages and parents alike. While the children play, parents can relax and enjoy the surroundings while listening to their children’s laughter and the inescapable sound of water from the nearby Lake Békás fountains.

Since opening in 2014 this spot has become a popular destination for families. Recently a new lookout tower / lighthouse has been added to the many fun features of the playground, the tower is surrounded by a rope climbing frame around the circumference.

In addition other new climbing / rope adventure features have been added adjacent to the tower and the giant play ship. If the adventure is insufficient here, then we recommend taking in the atmosphere of the surrounding forest in which are walks around the circumference of the park area. Alternatively there is always the Zoo and retro amusement park within a short 10 minute walk.

During warmer months there is a booth where both icecream and donuts are available, and for those looking for a heartier meal can walk for a a couple of minute to Krudy’s resturant. Adjacent to the playground is rest rooms and a cafe/waffle house. Ideal for keeping the kids happy all day.

Throughout the year many events are held in this area including a Wine and Jazz festival, as well as a children’s festival as part of the annual Debrecen flower festival.

Beside the park area is the Aquaticum Hotel, and as the name implies this hotel has extensive bathing facilities including a medical thermal spa. Thermal water is also available outdoors to the rear of the hotel in the Strand Water Park, which is not to be missed.
