The Fertö-Hanság Nemzeti Park lies on the Hungarian side and was established in 1991. The protected area now encompasses 300km² and is not only the first trans-boundary national park in Austria but also the first to be internationally recognized by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources.
The national park area is divided into six areas: Apetlon - Lange Lacke, Illmitz-Hölle, Podersdorf - Karmazik, Sandeck-Neudegg, Waasen-Hanság and the Zitzmannsdorfer Wiesen.
