In the heart of the 3.500 hectare forest reserve in south-western Lower Austria, you can find Austria’s only strict nature reserve (IUCN 1a): the primeval forest Rothwald
The primeval forest Rothwald is the largest remaining primeval forest in Central Europe. This area has remained untouched by axe or chainsaw since the last ice age. The primeval forest is surrounded by natural forests and stocks that are becoming wild forests once again.
You can discover the IUCN 1b area for yourself during one of our tours (which also offer a view of the Rothwald), and on the limited official hiking trails.
Projects, in areas such as public relations, species protection or natural environment management, as well as research activities are presented here. For more information, you can take a look through our literature database. recherchieren.
