The waters of the Danube and tis banks are among the most significant habitats in the Donau-Auen National Park. More and more people are seeking recreation as well as a special encounter with nature in this unique river landscape. To satisfy both demands, there are a few rules to follow. Among other measures, the parkland is zoned into sections where swimming is allowed and where it is prohibited. An information map available from national park staff clearly shows the areas where swimming is allowed and informs visitors about proper behavior in the protected areas.

There are natural swimming spots in the Lobau (in Vienna) where swimming is allowed. They are readily available and highly recommended. The same is true of the sand beaches near Orth an der Donau and at Stopfenreuth.
