Visitors can go for a short walk or for a long hike along the footpaths int he Zselic. On a walking tour you can rest in a hunting lodge, at a fishing-place or in a shelter-hut. You can taste delicious meals in a restaurant or cook on an open fire. If you feel like riding a bicycle , you can ramble over the whole region.
