On the path to becoming a Biosphere

Lungau is worthy to receive the title of UNESCO Biosphere Park

The Lungau region values nature, ecology, sustainability and hospitality.

It’s a long road for a region such as the Lungau to earn the UNESCO designation as a Biosphere Park. But there is certainly nowhere better qualified than the Lungau.

Lungau’s 15 communities have preserved their down-to-earthness, and maintained and developed their rural culture. Lungau is dear to the hearts of those who reside here. They want to conserve this treasure for their children and grandchildren, and at the same time share it with guests. In other words, we are perfectly qualified to receive the title of Biosphere Park.
