This is the Hungarian lowland with local traditions. The Hortobagy National Park is really amaizing with its birds and animals. A must!

Hortobagy is Hungary's only National Park. Great place to bring the family, as you travel around the park in a "historical" Hungarian farm cart viewing farm animals and learning of traditional Hungarian farm life.

Most of the attractions are about the traditional lifestyle of lifestock keepers in the Puszta. If you are interested in this topic, it is a nice place for you. Otherwise it might be a little boring.

I will be staying in Debrecen for a few days this summer. I might like a day trip to the Hortobagy. Does anyone know if there are tours available? Just looking for things to do while in the area.

Yes, you need to check the schedule and sign up at the visitor center in Hortobagy.
I would like to know the hours ( times ) these tours start per day ( how many shows per day )and the cost. Is it necessary to pre-book ? We will be arriving there by car. Thank you.
