National Park Camp Meierhof

The National Park Camp Meierhof is located in Eckartsau, Lower Austria, in the immediate neighborhood of Eckartsau Castle.

Experiencing and discovering the floodplain ecosystem is a priority here! Together with National Park rangers, you will go on a journey of discovery in the wetland forest. Whether on foot or with bicycles, whether on a rubber dinghy or with a canoe - there is a lot to discover at our camps. The wide area is well equipped, but the adventure does not come too short: we spend the night in large tents!

Current information regarding safety regulations

When conducting the summer and multi-day camps, we comply with the Covid-19 regulations in force at the time of the event and implement all necessary measures (restrictions on the number of participants, prevention concept, staff training, etc.). We will be happy to provide interested parties with more detailed information about the specific measures upon request.

The groups are accommodated in large tents on a 4,700 m² site. They sleep on wooden beds with a mat and sleeping bag. In the Meierhof building there are sanitary facilities, a kitchen with lounge and a well-equipped biological laboratory. The use of bicycles is included.

During our project weeks and days, the guests are supervised by experienced national park rangers, depending on the age group - from school classes to adult groups - as well as the thematic focus of the program.

The focus for younger guests is more on playing and discovering, while for young participants the focus will be on independent work, discussion and scientific thinking. There are specially designed programs for clubs and adult teams.

There is also plenty of free time: After the day trips, there is enough time for ball games, slackline, etc. There is also a bathing area within easy reach. Or you can retire to the tents and spend the late afternoon chatting and giggling together.

Interesting additional offers complete the program: Nature and culture, the region offers a broad range of topics.

Fresh air makes you hungry! For breakfast and dinner we go to a nearby inn. During the day we have packed lunches. Once, however, the night meal is prepared by ourselves: We grill at our large campfire site.

The day is over and the night begins. Now is the right time for a night hike or for storytelling around the campfire. Tired after a long and eventful day, it's finally time to go back to the tents - or does someone not want to sleep yet?...
