4d at National Park Donauauen

  • 08:45 arrival at the National park camp at Eckartsau – the kids slept in big tents.
  • Meet and greet with ranger Manfred, who told us a lot about this habitat.
  • Hike through the alluvial forest to the Danube (welcomed by thousands of mosquitoes – our new “worst” friends.)
  • Bathing in the Danube – what great way of cooling off!
  • Building  “boats” made of things found in the forest
  • Barbecue at the big fireplace – the dips and the salad some of the girls produced tasted excellent!
  • 7 kids (6 girls and 1 boy) chose to take a night hike (without torches) and were especially enthusiastic about the lightning bugs we came across; the rest of the class stayed in their tents and had an early night. 
  • Bike tour to the castle in Orth (under the blazing sun)
  • Rubber dinghy tour on a branch of the Danube
  • Bike ride back to the camp​​​​
  • 17:00h farewell and trip back to Wr. Neustadt
