Burgenland - Eisenstadt

Very close to the metropolis of Vienna there is a totally different landscape which invites you for a visit: The Burgenland (country of ancient fortresses) and its capital Eisenstadt, with the castle of the Esterhazys. Other interesting sights are the Bergkirche (mountain church) with the mausoleum of Haydn, the museum of Haydn and the Jewish museum.

Neusiedlersee (Lake of Neusiedl)

The endorheic lake with its reeds invites you to take a little break. Take the ship on Lake Neusiedlersee, get an idea of the romantic "Puszta", enjoy lunch in Rust where the storks live in summer, take the horse coach throughout reeds and vineyards, taste one of the delicious wines of the area and you want to stay longer.
