Experience one of the most beautiful former branches of the Danube in a canoe with National Park rangers. In Stopfenreuth you will learn the basics of paddling and then set out across the calm waters, going only as far as the mouth of the branch at the Danube. Stopfenreuth is known as the "birthplace" of the National Park. It was here, in 1984, where protesters were able to put a stop to plans for a Danube power plant at Hainburg by occupying the wetlands.
When water levels are as they should be, the waters are very clear. Fish can be observed swimming among the lush aquatic plants and floating lilies. Depending on the season, tour highlights may include sightings of European pond turtles, beavers, kingfishers, wild boars or deer.
Once the opposite Danube bank has been reached, the group disembarks and enjoys the marvellous view of the city of Hainburg and the Schlossberg. In the summer, take a refreshing dip in the river or look for shells, pretty Danube pebbles or even beaver tracks.
