Expedition through the Reeds - Lake Neusiedl
Expedition ins Schilf - Nationalpark Neusiedler See
The blood-red sphere of the sun sinks beneath the horizon, and the calls of waterbirds and raptors cut through the twilight. This is the westernmost point of the Orient, Austria's only steppe lake. Just two meters deep, Lake Neusiedl is surrounded by an immense reed jungle -a world in miniature where humans instantly lose their orientation. Deer thrive among the reeds. Along with acrocephalus warblers and nonagria moths, they find hiding places and plenty of food here. Natural salt ponds, miles-long sandbars and tumbleweed that was exported to the Wild West complete the picture of this unique place.
