Bird View of Natural Wonders
The impressive Neusiedler See - Seewinkel National Park is a natural wonder nestled along Austria’s eastern border with Hungary. Lake Neusiedl is a steppe lake and home to one of the world’s rare ecosystems. An extremely shallow lake, it shapes the landscape with its vast reed beds and 40 saline ponds. The unique location, east of the Alps and west of the Asian Plains, offers a surprising variety of habitats with Alpine, Pannonic, Asian, Mediterranean, and Nordic influence that contribute to biodiversity.
The National Park is a stepping stone for migratory birds, halfway between Northern Europe and Africa. Many of the rarest birds populate the lake, the ponds and and the meadows every year. Join the birdwatchers and photographers from all over the world in spring to capture one of the world’s rare natural spectacles. All this just one hour south of Vienna.
