Welcome to the Wienerwald Biosphere Reserve
The Wienerwald was designated as a Biosphere Reserve in 2005 by UNESCO. This standing protects the great variety of natural and cultural elements that make this region so unique and valuable. Wide range of wooded hills alternates with vast meadows, pastures and fruit orchards as well as vineyards and dry grasslands - the products from centuries of cultivation by humans. Four Nature Parks and the Viennese Lainzer Tiergarten, an extensive game park, are among the 15 nature preserves in this region.
