Fair play in interaction
with our natural heritage

Unspoilt nature is becoming increasingly rare. National parks, in which the protection of flora and fauna is an absolute priority, therefore assume an important role. This is where nature can develop freely and undisturbed.

And yet despite this the national parks are not “no-go areas”: they actually invite guests to come and be a part of what they’re doing by taking in the beautiful surroundings and conducting research. However, well-organised cooperation and coexistence is required in order to avoid adversely affecting the natural development of the landscape and species conservation efforts. Only respectful and responsible handling of flora and fauna will guarantee that we are still be able to encounter natural wonders tomorrow.

Only respectful and responsible handling of flora and fauna will guarantee that we are still be able to encounter natural wonders tomorrow.

It’s as simple as making sure to follow these guidelines:

  • Plan your visit well (do not enter National Park areas before sunrise or after sunset)
  • Don’t let dogs run free
  • Don’t make too much noise
  • Maintain distance from wild and grazing animals (use binoculars)
  • Strictly observe marked routes and do not leave signposted paths
  • Don’t leave anything behind (pick up your rubbish and take it home)
  • Don’t take anything away with you (apart from fond memories) (do not pick flowers or collect mushrooms)
  • Only ride a bike on the marked paths
  • Don’t set up wild camps or light a fire (staying overnight and camping is only permitted on official campsites or bivouac areas)

Detailed information on the respectful handling of its natural resources can be found on the Austrian National Parks’ websites.
