The Lobau area has always been a popular recreational area, especially for the Viennese. Running through the national park are both the long-distance rambling trail 07 and the Danube Cycling Path, which comes from Passau and continues to Hungary via Hainburg.
The protected area can be freely visited for walking, hiking, cycling etc., no entrance fee is charged. However, the rules of conduct must be observed: Hiking trails may not be left, there are some routes approved for cycling, as well as waters that may be navigated by non-motorised boats.
A wide-ranging visitor programme with guided hikes, canoe and rubber dinghy tours, events, etc. also offers many opportunities to explore the national park in the company of national park rangers for a fee and to learn interesting facts.
