National Blue Trail website
I see, you are from Austria. So I think, rather the plains are interesting for you, because the mountains are boring already!
I think, the section between Szeleste and Sárvár is the most monotone part of the Blue Trail! Are you planning a longer hike on this trail? I think, the Hungarian hilly counties are more beautiful for an Austrian hiker, too!
I don't know, who were those three hiker ladies, but I also thank their help!
|Message||Have been back on the Blue Trail this week - did the section from Sarvar to Szeleste. Very nice scenery, fabulous weather conditions and - thanks to the excellent marking of the trail - we never got lost.|
Another thanks to the three female hikers, who showed us how and where to find the stamps for the travel book! Their hint was very helpful!
|Message||Perhaps the late autumn and winter isn't the best time to walk the Blue Trail! On the one hand the daylight is short, between 8 am and 4 pm, on the other hand huntings are often in the forests, hunters can limit the movement of hikers in the forest.|
I can't tell you easier or harder sections on the route, but you have to prepare for the muddy dirt roads, the persistent rain and the foggy weather. Snow/ice is very rare in November and December, the temperature is generally above the freezing point. Honestly, the late autumn is not the best hiking season in Hungary!
|Message||What a great websie!|
I am planning a 6 week hike on the blue trail in november/december. If conditions are good possibly a thru-hike. I am curious if you know about other winter thru-hikes, and which sections are the most difficult ones if there is snow/ice
|Message||According to my latest information the green cross marks are painted already continuously among Klastrompuszta and Dobogókő. Underway you can take two short detours on the paths of green triangle marks to nice lookout points.|
I wish a good hike along the Blue Trail! If you will have any problem, write into the Guestbook! I read it every day!
köszönöm szépen!! Thank you so much for your answer and sorry for my late reply! That is very helpful, now I know what to do I'm starting the tour on Sunday and I am very excited and looking forward to it
It is a good idea to walk a longer section on the Blue Trail! I undertand you to avoid Budapest, I can recommend a very simple solution. If you reach Klastrompuszta village, at the ruins of the former monastery you have to make a shortcut to Dobogókő on the path of yellow strip, and later on the path of green cross marks. The Blue Trail makes a big omega bend to Budapest, and between Klastrompuszta and Dobogókő is its narrow "neck".
If you have other questions, write me, please!

Thank you so much for your great website, it's wonderful what you created there and so helpful! I am planning to walk on the Kéktura for two or three weeks at the end of May - I would like to start somewhere close to Tatabánya and I was wondering if you know a good shortcut to avoid going to Budapest? On the map it looks like it must be possible and since I've been to Budapest several times I would prefer to skip that section and go on walking in the nature I would be happy about any advice you can give
