Important habitat for reed birds. 120 bird species have been seen in the vicinity of this nature reserve.
The area between Königshof and Bruckneudorf forms one unique biotope network with flowing and standing water, reed zones, wet meadows and alluvial forest and is home to a variety of flora and fauna. The centerpiece is the 30 hectare nature reserve "Batthyanyfeld". Birds in particular use this area as breeding and feeding ground. Due to the geographical location between the March-Donauauen and Lake Neusiedl, this area offers an important stepping stone and resting place for migratory birds and is therefore of great importance for bird protection. The Batthyanyfeld is an important habitat for the reed birds. Here you can find warblers, herons, ducks, rails and birds of prey. From summer, when the water level sinks, it is an important feeding and resting place for waders. The best months for bird watching are from May to October.
Starting from Bruckneudorf: From the end of Gärtnergasse, walk along the Leitha to the nature reserve (approx. 1.5 km). Starting from Königshof: Coming from Wilfeinsdorf, just before the bridge over the Neue Leitha, turn left over the dam (driving ban!) Also on foot (approx. 1 km).
Note: Watch and enjoy - do not drive and disturb. Make your observations from the dam and do not enter the reed area. Dogs must be on a leash.
