Danube-Auen National Park

The wonderful wetland landscapes in the easternmost section of the Danube in Lower Austria also offer a natural paradise in the Danube’s idyllic old backwaters and unspoilt wilderness in one of the last primeval forests in Europe: Danube-Auen National Park and its fascinating flora and fauna guarantee unforgettable experiences in nature and invite visitors to take part in guided hikes or dinghy and canoe trips in the backwaters of the Danube. Well over 700 species of plants, over 30 species of mammals and 100 species of breeding birds, eight reptile and 13 amphibian species, thousands of small insects as well as 50 species of fish make their home in the Danube-Auen region today. The ‘DonAUräume’ exhibition in the schlossORTH National Park Centre displays interesting information about Danube-Auen National Park. The outdoor area on the Schlossinsel (‘Castle Island’) with its experience and underwater observation station can also be visited. If you’re interested in taking a closer look at the world of the wetlands, you can also take part in a tour with a national park ranger.
