The Prater - The Green Stadium
Der Prater - Eine wilde Geschichte
In the thicket of the meadows, badgers, foxes and deer are wandering around, while by the waters, Mandarin ducks are mating. They were imported for hunting purposes from China more than a hundred years ago and since then have established their place in the landscape. The Danube's bayous are not only a paradise for waterfowl of all sorts but also a haven for beavers, who chop down tree after tree. Life flourishes in the meadows of the Prater, Vienna's green lung. The 6.000.000 m2 big area of the Prater is full of «animal» surprises and it is exactly here where the 2008 UEFA European Championship will take place. This film portrays the diverse animal life in and around the stadium and will be available to international partners in time before the opening of the Euro 2008.
