National Park Lobau

And finally, Vienna also has a share in a national park. The Lobau, one of the last original floodplains in Europe, belongs to the Donau-Auen National Park. The “jungle” of the Viennese lies in the east of the city and covers 2,300 hectares, almost a third of the total area of the Donau-Auen National Park. More than 800 plants, including rare orchids, 30 mammals and 100 breeding bird species, eight reptile and 13 amphibian species as well as 60 fish species are native here, including beavers, white-tailed eagles, praying mantises, grey herons and kingfishers.

The address given here refers to the visitor centre - the Nationalparkhaus Wien - Lobau.
