The river springs near Forchtenstein and the border to Lower Austria.[1] It flows through Trausdorf an der Wulka[2] and discharges near Donnerskirchen into Lake Neusiedl,[3] in former times a runoff-free lake, but nowadays drained by an artificial channel, the Einserkanal [de; hu; it; nl; pl], into the Danube.

An article in the Journal of Hydrology stated that "Waste water treatment plants contributed up to 68% of monthly flow of River Wulka into the lake."[4]
