25 Years of Neusiedlersee National Park

NationalparkThe Austrian national park Neusiedlersee-Seewinkel was established in 1993.

The director Manfred Christ has produced a 16-minute film to mark the park’s 25th anniversary, exploring the journey from the original ambitious plans to the present day with the aid of historical footage from the archives of the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation (ORF).

An initial conflict between conservationists and farmers led to co-operation between the two groups and, eventually, to the establishment of the celebrated national park.
