Halimba

Dr. Miklós Szalai Memorial House and Local Heritage Collection, Village Museum and Educational Garde

Discounts with Bakony & Balaton Card



You can enjoy a really warm welcome and a special experience if you visit Halimba, a small village in the South Bakony region. This area is one of Hungary’s richest herb-growing regions. If you visit the Memorial House of Dr. Miklós Szalai, you can not only explore the story of the ‘dean of Halimba’, who was nationally acclaimed for his tea blends, but you can also get to know more about healing herbs and teas made from them. The name of dean Dr. Miklós Szalai is associated with the launch of the Halimbarium herbal tea line three decades ago. The former residence of the dean, where he lived and worked, now hosts the Miklós Szalai Herbal Garden, Demonstration and Educational Centre which is the true keeper of the heritage of the ‘dean of Halimba’ and promotes the revival, demonstration and propagation of herbal traditions linked with the village and the entire region. The herbal garden is probably the most beautiful in spring when you can see a ‘sea’ of aromatic plants here with their colourful flowers and heavenly scents. No wonder you can find a bee yard in the settlement, for, naturally, this amount of pollens will not leave these busy animals cold. The staff in the memorial house will be glad to show you the way to the bee yard.

Opening hours: during the whole year.

Halimba másik sajátossága és kézjegye a ma már csak a múzeumi gyűjteményből s a helyi geotúráknak köszönhetően megismerhető bauxitbányászat. A település egykor fontos tevékenysége ma már a múltté; a bányászati ipartörténeti eszközöket és helyszínt egy épület pincéjében kialakított, imitált bányavágat segítségével tekinthetjük meg. Az udvaron bányai népes kocsi, kőzetgyűjtemény és egy, a községben bányabalesetben elhunytak emlékére állított emlékmű található.

Opening hours: pre-registri on requered.
