Play and feasts around the palace

You’ve already got your ticket to the Lower Austria State Exhibition 2022? Excellent! The “MARCHFELD Secrets” exhibition offers plenty of exciting mysteries for children and teenagers. If you book a guided family tour, you will benefit twofold. This special guided tour focusses on young visitors. You really should pay the stork family a visit! It’s quite an experience to approach the stork colony and observe the proud storks up close.
Such adventures and experiences are no doubt impressive, but they will also make you hungry. Your next port of call should therefore be Schlossbuffet Maywald in Marchegg, right there on the palace grounds. It offers ample refreshments for adventurers young and old. In pleasant weather, the picnic meadow is the perfect place for a short break. Children will immediately spot the small playground in the palace park, where they can play and recharge their batteries. But don’t play too hard – there’s still a lot to discover!

Fun for all ages at Gänserndorf Adventure Park

... aaaaand action! The excitement never ends at Gänserndorf Adventure Park. Children of almost all ages can demonstrate their skills in the forest climbing park, board the adventure playground, race on the go-kart course, or get a good laugh out of the wellington boot throwing game. Small children can meet cuddly four-legged friends at the petting zoo, and the pony rides are very popular as well. Older kids can practice archery on the bow-hunting safari, play laser tag, or visit the exciting “virtuality room”. A highlight for any child is llama trekking. Leading, petting and feeding will quickly create a bond between the young llama leaders and their sensitive companions. In some cases, this bond may even deepen into friendship!
After a fun and eventful day, your stomach is probably rumbling. Luckily, the Heuriger tavern Storch in Gänserndorf is just around the corner. Whether you prefer to eat in the cosy restaurant or in the charming garden under the vines: the local specialities made from regional ingredients will taste twice as good after a day at the adventure park.

Wild swimming and WWF Nature Reserve: there’s so much to discover!

We have a lot more in store for you. After visiting the Lower Austria State Exhibition 2022, you could take your children to enjoy the untamed floodplains of the WWF Nature Reserve, which starts right behind Marchegg Palace. Follow the trail of the beaver, or discover the primitive Konik horses. If the weather is hot, consider heading to the Danube to cool down with a wild swim by the fluvial terrace in Stopfenreuth.

When you plan your day at the Lower Austria State Exhibition 2022, make sure you take enough time to discover the region: the Marchfeld holds 1001 secrets – and at least as many lovely experiences and priceless memories for you and your children.
