Normafa is known even by those who have never been to this part of the Buda Hills. Located in the 12th district, it’s a popular skiing and excursion locale. It’s no surprise that Svábhegy’s highest point is such a loved area given it’s just 15-20 minutes from the city centre. With fantastic views overlooking Budapest and out across the Buda Hills, the Normafa Club House is located in the heart of the Buda Hills, and it’s a great spot for sport and active recreation.
This beautiful forested, mountain-top region was popular with artists in the last century. Under the hundreds-of-years-old beech tree that stood here Róza Klein sang the famous aria from Bellini’s Norma. This is how the area got the name Normafa, which can be translated as Norma tree. According to legend, the beech tree from this story dates back to Matthias Corvinus’s time, the king of Hungary between 1458 and 1490. The tree, which had been given the name “storm beech” after withering so many storms over the years, was eventually struck by lightning in 1927.
