The village has 650 inhabitants, 85% of which is German, the rest belongs to the Hungarian "minority". Hárskút was united with settlements called Hárságy and Gyergyánkút, which previously had been independent administratively, on 1 July 1956. A lot of karst springs can be found in the neighbourhood, the most important of which is spring Anti, which supplies the surrounding villages with excellent quality water. Several caves can be visited here including caves Rendkő and Borzás-hegy. Due to its natural beauties the region is ideal for sport, leisure time activities, getting to know the flora and fauna. It is frequently visited by tourists in winter and in summer providing pleasant experiences despite the fact that visitors can even get tired of hiking.
The sights of Hárskút include several memorial plaques and first of all, the village museum housing an exhibition called 'The life and customs of our grandparents' organized by the Local Minority Council on the 50th anniversary of the deportation. The exhibition is still open to the public presenting old personal belongings, furnishings and national costumes collected in the village.
