Magyarürög lies at the eastern base of Jakab hegy (hill), with the Éger valley slightly to the north, and is one of the top tourist destinations in the region. From the bus station at Újmecsekalja in Pécs you can take bus numbers 22, 23 or 24 to the Ürög felső bus stop at the outskirts of Pécs-Magyarürög. After crossing the road, take Fülemüle and Kócsag utca (streets) heading towards the north end of the village. The parking lot is at the Éger passage. The blue and green crosses signal the path to the artificial lake. Next to the lake there is a shelter and benches with tables. You can quench your thirst at the Delelő well.
You can wander around the slopes in the valley following the green and blue cross marks. The road bridges the creek, which was dammed up to create the lake. Following the green mark, brings you to the Mohosi well, where the path leads back to the valley. There is also a 1-kilometre-long gymnastic course in the forest for those who are interested in sports. The blue cross mark takes you from the Éger valley and close to the Éger spring.
Taking the road north from the Ürög felső bus stop brings you to the Béke spring and Isten well. The green circle mark leads northwards from here to the picturesque valley of Nagy-Deindol (Great Deindol), which is surrounded by vineyards.
According to local legend, the Deindol area once belonged to a German. As he felt death approaching he took his three sons to a hill from where they could see all of his domain. The old man divided his wealth. Starting from the west, he pointed at the first valley, and told his eldest son in Swabian German “Das ist dein Thol!" which translates as "This is your valley!". He told the same to his middle and youngest son, pointing at the two other valleys. Since then, the three areas have been called Great-, Middle-, and Little-Deindol.
