The “Portz Insel” Project

The Mikulov, Portz Insel Project – Accessing and reconstruction of a designed historic landscape, was carried out by the City of Mikulov and its partners – the municipalities of Sedlec u Mikulova and Drasenhofen in Austria.


The preparation of the project already began in 2016, when numerous meetings were held with the affected
stakeholders, and subsequent preparatory steps were taken. In 2018 a subsidy for the project execution from the cooperation programme ‘Interreg V-A Austria-Czech Republic 2014–2020’ was approved. From September 2018 to June 2020 the project itself was carried out. Its main goal was to renovate and provide access to the historic brick bridge with 15 arches, as part of the cultural heritage site Portz Insel summer residence from the 17th century. Another access to the bridge was created through the renovation of the old road network in the municipalities of Mikulov – Sedlec u Mikulova – Drasenhofen.

 The step provided the missing connection to the cycle path from Mikulov to Austria. No less important were further project activities, including the construction of an educational trail with five panels and resting points alongside the renovated roads to support effective visitor orientation, and the publication of a booklet about the historic locality and its restored heritage site.
