An arboretum founded by Dr. Gyula Folly in the early 20th century, just a few corners from the lakeshore above Badacsonyörs. A world of special cedars and cypresses with a winery managed by the fourth generation of the Follys.

Folly Arboretum in Badacsonyörs, one of kind around the lake, was established by physician Dr. Gyula Folly from Pécs in the early 20th century. This collection of special cedars and cypresses called "the old arboretum" is the core of the garden today, which has been managed and extended by generations (currently the 4th) of the family.

The arboretum has an area of 5 hectares planted mostly with coniferous trees, of which the Atlas cedars are the most precious ones. Each tree is a clone of the original tokens planted in 1905. What's more, the cedar collection in the Arboretum of Agostyán near Tata grew from seeds from here. The garden has up to 400 species of pine trees as well as 200 species of deciduous trees and shrubs.

A playground, a resting spot, a restaurant and a conifer-shaped lookout tower with a great view all contribute to make your visit memorable. Besides the arboretum the family's winery has also gained reputation over the years.
