Expedition through the reeds

Arno Cimadom

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.
Lake Neusiedl, just two meters deep, is surrounded by an immense reed jungle – a world in miniature where humans instantly lose their orientation.
