Nationalparks Austria

The umbrella organisation

The team of Nationalparks Austria coordinates the joint projects under the leadership of the eight National Park Directors. Implementation is always carried out in close cooperation with the staff of the eight National Park administrations as well as the Department for National Parks, Nature Conservation and Species Protection of the Federal Ministry for Climate Action Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology.
For this purpose, the different working groups meet several times a year and serve as a platform for continuous exchange and further development.

The office of Nationalparks Austria is placed within the facilities of the administration of the Donau-Auen National Park and is located in the old Castle in Orth, a small village between Vienna and Bratislava.
