Bird Ringing Live
Bird Ringing has a long tradition at Lake Neusiedl. In addition to the actual ringing, the captured birds are also measured and weighed. Over a long time periods, scientists receive detailed information on the different aspects of the migration of birds. With our long-time bird ringer Gilbert Hafner you have the opportunity to see our feathered friends really close.

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.
