Visit the Weidmoos!

The Weidmoos is not only a habitat for rare birds; it is also a place to experience nature first hand. During the ongoing LIFE-project a series of visitor facilities have been built in the southern part of the Weidmoos:

  • A theme-path presents the habitats, bird-species as well as the history of the area.
  • At the "Information centre Weidmoos" you can find out everything about the Weidmoos and the LIFE-project.
  • Hides offer you the opportunity to observe birds without disturbing them.
  • A viewing tower (height 12 m) gives you an impressive overview of the site.

Opening hours at the Information centre

During summer the Information centre will only be open on appointment. You can arrange a guided tour to the Weidmoos with Johann Grießner (head of the "Torferneuerungsverein Weidmoos", tel.: +43 (664) 4008733). In the autumn guided tours will be arranged at fixed dates, which will be announced as soon as possible.

Nature comes first at the Weidmoos

The bird species breeding at the Weidmoos need undisturbed areas, where they can search for food and raise their young. Therefore you have to observe some important rules when visiting the European nature reserve Weidmoos:

  • Keep to the paths! The Weidmoos may only be entered along the marked theme-path!
  • Keep dogs to a leach!
