Universum A riverine wilderness

Production Overview
Expedition to the Danube River Forest National Park

A fascinating expedition to the Danube River Forest National Park, the last large area of riparian forest still to be found in Central Europe and harbouring a diversity of wildlife unique in Europe, populated by grey herons, sakers, kingfishers and penduline titmice.

The Danube and its old beds host some 60 species of fish, among them zander, sheathfish and sterlet; the ancient forests provide a refuge for beavers, red deer, wild boars and foxes - an incredible variety of species, a wilderness right in the heart of Europe.

And the Danube River Forest National Park has another feature that makes it unique among national parks: with its territory reaching right into the city of Vienna, it is the only such preserve to span town and country.
