Neusiedler See – Seewinkel National Park in Austria

Neusiedler See (Lake Neusiedl) is the second largest steppe lake in Central Europe (after Balaton in Hungary). It is located south-east of Wien, close to Bratislava, Slovakia. The National Park Neusiedler See-Seewinkel was established in 1993 (The Fertö-Hanság Nemzeti Park on the Hungarian side was established in 1991) and 8 years later (2001) the national parks in Austria and Fertő-Hanság in Hungary were together accepted as a World Heritage Site. The Neusiedler See and its surrounding areas in Austria also enjoy protection through the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands

The lake is not deeper than 1.8m and is great opportunity for cyclists and trekkers.
