Danube-Auen National Park in Austria

The Danube-Auen National Park or Nationalpark Donau-Auen in German covers 93km2 and it is situated between the European capitals Vienna and Bratislava and is one of the largest remaining floodplains of the Danube in Central Europe.

Danube is still free flowing here and is the lifeline of the National Park. It creates a habitat for a number of animals and plants, some of which are rare species. Accompanied on guided walking tours or on boats, visitors have ample opportunity to get to know the fascinating world of the “Donau-Auen”, the Danube wetlands.

Donau-Auen National Park was established in 1996 and in 1977 the Lobau region was declared a preserved area by the Austrian government, as well as by UNESCO.

It is good alternate at your visit to Wienna.
