Excursions in the National Park
Neusiedler See - Seewinkel
The pannonian BirdExperience takes place at the National Park Neusiedler See - Seewinkel. A unique area which will be explored in course of all the offered excursions:
• from sunrise until late afternoon
• in different parts of the National Park
• a diverse spectrum with different ornithological topics
• exploring the area by foot or with bicycle
Thanks to our geographical situation it is possible to visit neighbouring protected areas, as well as Birding HotSpots and further we are able to look behind the curtains of some organizations concerning bird conservation and science.
Our all-day events take place at neighbouring states and adjacent countries:
• Lower Austria
Every day the BirdExperience offer you the possibility to relax with good food and drinks and enjoy some interesting talks at our evening events. In cooperation with some local restaurants we initiated a series of lectures in which not only the mind is to be addressed - many regional delicacies are the right thing after a long, successful birding day to put some life into ourselves for the next early day!
Visit different local restaurants, enjoy interesting talks about topics like ornithology and nature tours.
Teams of at least 2 participants try to discover as many different bird species as possible within 4 hours. Only "ecofriendly" ways of travel are allowed. Start and finish is the National Park Information Centre. Christoph Roland, Head of the Austrian Birdrace - www.birdrace.at - takes over the preliminary discussion and issue of the race documents on Saturday, 22nd April 2017 at 05:30. Start will be at 6:00.
The winners will get some small prizes, but above all, fame and honor!
Our BirdExperience BirdQuiz on Saturday evening is already a classic. It's not all about identification tasks, also there will be different questions about the ecology of birds and the world of birds in general. The BirdQuiz' 'Champion' receives a valuable prize. Also all other participants automatically take part in the raffle of further exclusive prizes.
Get involved, have fun and win great prizes!
BEX - The Next Generation
If you take part in an excursion, listen to a lecture or get to know the exhibition stands at the Information Centre - we will take care of your children and give them exciting insights of the world of birds. Our National Park Rangers 'pack' interesting things for the young birdwatchers in elaborate games or tinker with them useful or simply funny things. Whether it is for one or two hours, or for the whole day, the varied programme will inspire the young participants for nature.
