Ferto-Neusiedlersee Natural Landscape Vacation Packages

Lake Ferto is situated on the territory of Austria and Hungary, and it was nominated jointly by the two countries for inclusion on the World Heritage list. Part of the Ferto-Hansag National Park, in 1979 it was declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO, and it is regarded as one of the internationally significant natural water areas of Europe. It is the most western example of the Eurasian steppe lakes, and at the same time it is Europe`s largest salt-water lake. The water is shallow, the depth of the water constantly changes, but on average it is always below one meter. It has dried up several times, last time being between 1865-1871. It is fed mainly by two streams and rainwater, it has no natural drainage, its water is drained off by the Hansag main channel. The thick reed-beds and the 80 or so marshy areas form a veritable bird paradise. The landscape around lake Ferto-Neusiedler See - is the result of a unique natural and geographical process, in which the still traceable cultural history of the ethnic groups that have followed one another here has played a significant role.
