Our Facilities

… an experience for the entire family!

The oldest nature park in Austria is located in the municipality of Hinterbrühl near Mödling in the southern part of the Vienna Woods and was founded more than 50 years ago (in 1962). The park underwent a major redesign in 2005 and many new attractive features were introduced in celebration of the park’s 50th anniversary in 2012. The walled, park-like complex invites visitors to explore the giant trees, romantic ruins and spacious meadows and enjoy leisurely walks through the Vienna woodland and its beautiful Biedermeier garden design. The combination of “historical” elements with new interactive educational programs, as well as the free-range wild boars offers guests an unforgettable day.

Please note:

Due to the free-roaming wild boars, dogs are NOT allowed in the park. We thank you for your understanding.
