Welcome to the Donau-Auen National Park website.
Situated between the European capitals Vienna and Bratislava, the Donau-Auen National Park preserves the last remaining major wetlands environment in Central Europe. Here, the Danube is still free flowing and is the lifeline of the National Park. It creates a habitat for numerous animals and plants, some of which are rare species.
The learning opportunities here are also plentiful and varied. 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. A wealth of information is available at the schlossORTH National Park Centre in the town Orth on the Danube.
Sorry, but some parts of our website are available in German only.
