Storks spend the spring and summer in Marchegg

From April to August the famous Marchegg stork colony can be found in Marchfeld. As part of guided tours you get to go and see the "Adebar family". At the end of August the storks then fly to South Africa where they spend the winter, before returning to Marchfeld in the spring. The entire journey (there and back) undertaken by the Marchegg storks is almost 20,000 km, which is the equivalent of half a circumnavigation of the earth.
