We work in the National Park "because it makes sense - because it is beautiful!

Our mission
We believe that it makes sense to preserve the Gesäuse landscape and its wild nature.
Where nature is not used and left to its own devices, a special diversity of species survives and develops freely. Such landscapes have become rare and therefore particularly valuable.
The National Park is open to all people to experience nature with respect. With enthusiasm we share our passion for the Gesäuse.
