A nature paradise with mystical charm
The nature reserve ‘Mannersdorf Desert’ needed to be awakened from its proverbial sleeping-beauty slumber. In addition to making the tourist destination more attractive, as well as optimising the experience for a broad, family audience, ideally the added value of the partners involved should also be increased. The mystical, historical past – the park was originally a monastery complex of the Carmelite Order – as well as nature reserve motifs were considered for the new staging of the site. Today, Mannersdorf offers a unique and exciting holiday destination in the Leitha Mountains region.
In the framework of the EU regional development programme ‘LEADER’, Erlebnisplan opened up the historic structures and natural park, turning them into a tourist attraction. Based on past traditions, both the natural park and historical legacy were carefully orchestrated. The aim was to upgrade the existing sites as well as to provide visitors with powerful moments of experience.
