This nature park is located on the former monastery premises known as “Wüste” (desert).
Lower Austria opened its newest nature park in 1986 on the former monastic premises known as “Wüste” (desert). Its name is Naturpark Mannersdorfer Wüste.
The extended deciduous forests, meadows and allées with a host of age-old trees are inviting places to rest and relax or to take long walks in unspoilt nature. Two other places worth visiting and of interest in terms of cultural history are the remains of the monastic premises “St. Anna in der Wüste” (Saint Anna in the Desert) with hermitages and Scharfeneck ruins. The first documented mention of the latter was as Neuscharfeneck in 1417.
