"Europareservat Unterer Inn" - an important hub and living space for water birds.

The Bavarian- Upper Austrian "Europareservat Unterer Inn" spreads transnational about 55 km, beginning at "Haiming" up to "Neuhaus/ Schärding". It consists of surfaces of water, warp and isles of about 5500 hectares. In this nature- and bird-reserve, there are a lot of river meadow woods and a lot of birds and other animals. Plants and animals of threatened species, like the beaver live here as well.
The "Europareservat Unterer Inn" belongs to the "Ramsar"-areas (because of its importance).

Some interesting historical facts: The Romans called the river Inn "AENUS" which means "the Churning". Until the middle of the 19th century, the undamped river streamed meandering form the Alps.

As an officially recognized conservation station, the information centre offers guided hikes (night hikes, ornithological and botanical tours, beaver study trips) around the nature reserve. School classes and groups can book interesting classes like "life in a water drop".
