Friends of the Wilderness Dürrenstein

In December 2013 the “Friends of the Wilderness Dürrenstein” board of trustees was founded. It supports the wilderness area commercially through marketing measures. On the one hand, it seeks to contact supporters, sponsors, and members in a professional manner as well as to create enthusiasm for the opportunities, necessities and needs of the wilderness area. On the other hand, the board of trustees is responsible for keeping the sensitive area safe from “primeval forest tourism”.

The executive boards are Mag. Gustav Eder-Neuhauser (EEP Werbeagentur GmbH), Stefan Ramharter (Druckerei Queiser GmbH), Mag. Hubert Schuhleitner (ZKW Group), MBA Horst Stibl (Ernst Stibl GmbH) and Thomas Sykora.

There are numerous ways to support the primeval forest:

Partners of the Wilderness Dürrenstein are authorized to add “Protection of Primeval Forests” to their company’s supported movements. For many companies this is a vital value they wish to communicate to the public.

Supporter (Project-Patronage): In this form of partnership a company focuses on a particular scientific project of the Wilderness Dürrenstein.

Angel: Every donation from private persons – no matter how small – is welcome. In return one can become an extraordinary member of the association. We will gladly send you the bank information for the transfer. You can find the contact form here.

We are happy about your interest. You can find more information by e-mailing us at or by visiting the Friends of the Wilderness Dürrenstein” board of trustees’ website
