We've been here a few times, and although good, we get the feeling it is deteriorating in regards to birding. The vineyards and their management is not at all eco friendly. A shame as the wines are excellent. Gas gun bird scarers are everywhere. It was however good to see five Great Bustards and an Imperial Eagle!

We cycled 2 days in this area. Very well conserved, good feeling of being in the reserve and many stops with watchtowers or zdditional explanation. The landscape is beautiful, though not spectacular. Do not expect to be overwhelmed by a lot of wildlife. We enjoyed this area.

A quiet peaceful area of vineyards , birds and the Neuseidler See. We spent two nights here in route to Salzburg and found it fascinating. Took the horse drawn carriage ride through the national park with Vinzenzhof Gangi at 7142 Illmitz, and loved the country-side, the views of active stork nests, and finally, the unexpected surprise of a herd of the wild white donkeys that live in the park. Went to a great restaurant in Podersdorf, Gasthaus zur Dankbarkeit. Had dinner out in their garden, wonderful lamb dish and full bar--best restaurant we found in Austria. Need reservation.

It does not deepened on a certain time of the year in order to enjoy this place, if you are visiting this area you will be exploring the nature and it is habitation every time with a new perspective.
The Area is famous for a wide range of bird population but for other lack plants and insects.
Illmitz it belongto the nationalpark-neusiedlersee-seewinkel which spread between Austria and Hungary and count as one of the famous bird areas in Europe
The list of bird are too long but one of the most important birds which settle in this area is the grey Graylag goose, Grey Heron, white stork, Pied avocet, Northern lapwing, Western yellow wagtail, Great bustard and a big colony of bee eater which stay in the area between spring and summer.
Give this area a chance if you happen to be in in Austria
