Recommended reading: Burgen-Land on the Green Belt


The former east-western border along the "Iron Curtain" has developed into the “Green Belt”. Today it covers 8000 km from Scandinavia to the Black Sea and comprises a great number nature protection-relevant, valuable natural habitats, in particular in national parks and nature parks.

The Burgenland also has its share of the “Green Belt” and can be proud of a great diversity of interesting regions. More information in the two download pdfs (German) (Seite 57-64 and Seite 65-80). The texts present a short outlook upon the book "Österreich am Grünen Band" in German (Austria on the Green Belt) that will be published in a few weeks.
