Art and Nature along the Danube

Covering an area of almost 25,000 acres, the Danube-Auen National Park protects one of the largest remaining wetlands of the Danube in Central Europe. For a distance 36 km (20mls), the Danube flows freely and is the lifeline of the national park. The dynamic rise and fall of water levels - sometimes up to 7 meters - mean that the wetlands landscape is constantly recreated and reformed. In this way, the flow of the Danube allows an eco-system to blossom free of commercial restraints, creating habitats for a large number of rare plants and animals. The area is not only of great beauty but is also rich in history connected with Prince Eugene, Napoleon, and Austria's last emperor, Charles.
