The Pintér Garden Arboretum was named after János Pintér, a bank clerk working in Pécs, who began to plant various species in this area in the 1920s. Following his death the natural flora and fauna recaptured most of his former garden increasing the variety of the species. Today an interesting mixture of the original and introduced plants forms the vegetation of the park. In 1977 the garden became a nationally protected area. It is located on a 1,7-hectare area and there is a 70-metre level difference between the entrance and the look-out tower connected by a path. Today the Pintér House serves as the headquarters of the Danube-Drava National Park Walking in this well-tended little garden decorated with sculptures the blooming of several rare and protected plants including the specially protected Ophrys scolopax and Orchis simia, which can be recognized after its typical blossoms, can be observed.
Countless curiosities, pines, hardwoods and shrub species live here which are non-indigenous to Hungary. One of the biggest Arizona Cypresses in Central Europe can be found here as well. The laurel-leafed cistus, the Judas Tree, fig and pomegranate are among the Mediterranean flora. The peonies in bloom are a fascinating spectacle in May.
