Forest Training Track
Forest Training Track in the Lőverek of Sopron!
Make some steps for your health! Your feet are always at hand!
Everything has a story in Sopron.
Did you know that the idea of developing the Park Forest is connected to András Muck (1851-1925)
the head-keeper and overseer of the Sopron forests?
Indicated tour paths, lookouts and shelters were built and forest tourism started to prosper in those days until World War II.
After the war forest tourism came to an end due to more important issues such as clearing bomb sites.
The very first Park Forest and Forest Training Track of the country awaits you,
The realisation of this splendid idea is owing to the followers of noble ancestors and they deserve to be mentioned by name!
The development plan was elaborated by dr. István Csapody, dr. Miklós Juhász, dr. Mrs. Jánosné Mollai Gabriella Csapodi.
In addition to them, we must not forget about the numerous botanists and foresters who have contributed to the work for the forests of Sopron!
(Kitaibel, Gombocz, Kárpáti, Csapody, Roth)
Countless lookouts, springs and monuments can be found in the forests of Sopron from the Celtic period to the present day.
Some of these monuments are quite expressive:
for example the Singing Hill and the Singing Stone remind us of the Meeting of Singers on this hill in 1986!
We humbly admit that the Vadászkürt (Hunting-horn) Guest-house and Restaurant also raised a monument to the memory of this event in our own way!
