Danube lowland

The Danube, Europe’s second longest river, dominates the Danube lowland with its vast fertile Danube floodplain. The Danube and its tributaries have created an intricate network of branches, extensive marshes and gravel-ponds. Almost 40 minerals have been found in the Danube sands and gravels and even gold was panned for until recently. Of even greater value are the plentiful resources of underground water and healing thermal springs. They constitute the most abundant sources of drinking water in Europe. The unique flora and fauna of the floodplain forests make an added attraction. They are part of the protected region of the Danube floodplains which stretches along the Danube. Rare forest, water, marsh, meadow and sand-loving communities occur here.
