the green jewel between the Alps and the Carpathians
Donau-Auen National Park
The Donau-Auen National Park is situated between the twin cities of Vienna and Bratislava, where the natural floodplains form a green corridor along the Danube.
The National Park offers several information points, including the main visitor centre in Orth/Donau. There, in the exhibition, you can experience the dynamics of floodplain ecosystems and the history and geography of the National Park. The outdoor area of the visitor centre introduces you to some main species of the floodplains and their traces, which you can detect on your walk through the surrounding nature.
The National Park also offers tours by walking or on boats, in side-arms and along the Danube. Experienced rangers will let you discover the secrets of nature and tell you astonishing details about fauna and flora.
