The Donau-Auen National Park
The Donau-Auen National Park lies between Vienna and Bratislava. With over 93 sqare kilometers (23,000 acres) area, the park protects the last remaining major wetland environment in Central Europe. For a distance of just over 36 km, 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 - means that the wetlands landscape is constantly recreated and reformed. In this way, the flow of the Danube creates habitats for a large number of plants and animals.

Schloss Hof - (Savoy)
Schloss Hof is a palace located in the WeinViertel near the border of Slovakia. It once belonged to Prince Eugene of Savoy. He had it enlarged in the Baroque style by the architect Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt in 1729, and used it as an elaborate hunting lodge. He left it to a niece in his will, and it was later purchased by Empress Maria Theresa of Austria and became part of the Austrian imperial estates.
