Nature parks and national parks

Revel in the tranquility of untouched nature - or actively enjoy the great outdoors.

Alpine meadows, riparian forests and lush vineyards, narrow canyons and sweeping heathland, gently rolling hills and craggy ridges, picturesque river banks and mysterious moors: The confluence of Alpine and Pannonian, northern European and southern European influences is what gives Lower Austria its varied landscapes. Nowhere else in Central Europe boasts such diversity in such a concentrated form.
