Danube – Auen National Park


Staying a few days in Bratislava with an interest to see a bit of Danube nature and cross the Slovak – Austrian border on foot?

This half day trip (8.30 – 15.00) will start with your pick up in Bratislava. We will drive to Hainburg – one of the towns on the Slovak – Austrian border. We will stop for pictures on the top of a hill called Braunsberg located above the Danube river and the town. The hill used to be a Celtic town and also has Roman history.


Right after we will start our walk through the National park Donau-Auen along the Danube river direction to Bratislava. It is 11 km long, flat and easy with several stops. In the summer time there is a possibility to swim on surprisingly nice Danube beaches. Especially one that has a view of the Devín castle located across the river in Slovakia.
We will finish the tour crossing the Austrian – Slovak border and driving back to your accommodation.


During the day we will talk about the Danube river, National park Donau-Auen, the nearby Hainburg, Devín, and Bratislava castle, about the borders in the past, and other topics related to the location.
