Another 10.000 ha of protected area joins all this in Austria, Nationalpark See-Seewinkel his ferry. They created the national park in 1993 while the common protected one's was his initiation in 1994 in 1991, Austria on the Hungarian side.

A little wooden bridge is the Andaui bridge above the Hanság main sewer constituting the Austro-Hungarian state border. It became famous after a 1956 revolution and the driving in of a war of independence because the Hungarians' ten thousands escaped through this bridge towards Austria. The bridge was the war of independence and the symbol of the helpfulness by today. The bridge first the II. it chased away after a world war Germans' escape his road 1947-got into the centre of the international attention in 48. A huge refugee stream attained it on the time of the 1956 revolution towards West the borders. Altogether more, than 200.000 Hungarians escaped towards West, from among them some 70 thousand people crossed the border towards Austria. 1956. November the Soviet soldiers blew up the bridge on 21. His place, with 40 years later (1996. September 14.) the Hungarian and Austrian soldiers raised a new bridge jointly. The 7 metres long and 2 metres of wide, wooden bridge today historical memorial place, and pedestrian and cyclist (free) cross border.

From Kapuvár city, Kistölgyfapusztán cross we move towards Miklósmajor. We bend onto the gritty-earthy road here. We observe it the bicycle board mark, which one guides the row of our road. The car N 47° 42,004 E 17° on 1,195 dots put it down, because a pedestrian and cycle track drive until the bridge only already from here. It is possible to drive up with a permit only! From the car park cca. 3500 m the road, which appears a little bit long,, but we may face the individuals of the numberless rare race living here in the course of the road.

(With a car the border on an asphalt road which can be approached stepping over from Jánossomorja the bridge, but I recommend this as the hastier ones only, because he falls behind the Ferto-from Hanság Nemzeti Park special living world!)

The chest (cca. 16x9 cm, fruit glass) in the forest beside the bridge can be found, in the stem of a mossy, rotten trunk. Quite soft the soil, we ask everybody to approach it carefully because of this, not let kesser ösvény--, and let him take care of the nature! Advisable closed clothing, concerned because a lot are the nettle with a spring and in summer the mosquito!
