Budapest

Fekete-hegy offers a light and family friendly hike, not to mention the view from top: you can see the entire Káli Basin and you can even catch a glimpse of Lake Balaton. The Károly Eötvös Lookout Tower on top is not the only sight, there are plenty of natural and built sights to enjoy. There are some ruinous press houses on the side of the hill, and there are six lakes on the plateau that have mysterious origins.

The lookout tower can be reached by following the signs of the Blue Trail from the stone cross near the stone field of Szentbékkálla. The hike takes about half an hour to complete. If you start your hike from Köveskál, then follow the yellow triangle for about 40 minutes – this trail has two other sights, the Öreghegyi-kút well with crystal clear drinking water, and Vaskapu-árok.
