The Four-Pillar Philosophy

The Lower Austrian Eisenwurzen Nature Park is firmly anchored in the municipality of Hollenstein and in the hearts of the local community and is committed to the four-pillar philosophy: #protection #recreation #education #regional development

The main focus is placed on the conservation and protection of nature and the biodiversity as well as on imparting knowledge to the local community and guests.

  • We are located in a unique region of Austria where others go on holiday.
  • We protect our habitat.
  • We cooperate with other Nature Parks in the region.
  • We see ourselves as a bridge between different groups of interest in the region.
  • We try to align their objectives with the protection of the environment.
  • We organise projects in an ecological and sustainable way and increase the regional economy.
  • We promote the preservation of traditional handicrafts and ancestral knowledge.
