Austria - Burgenland (Chapter)
This is the Burgenland chapter from Lonely Planet’s Austria guidebook.
Burgenland is all but the typical Austria you hear of or read about. What it does have is wine – wine in abundance – and the aquatic outdoors, especially around the reedy shores of the Neusiedler See. Burgenland is very low-key, but a place where you can relax lakeside or in rolling landscapes.
- sip wines and sup in one of the pretty Heurigen dotted across Burgenland
- cycle at a leisurely pace through the Neusiedler See-Seewinkel National Park, a haven for bird life
- restaurants & accommodation
- revel in the views from Eisenstadt’s Bergkirche after completing the Stations of the Cross
Coverage includes: Eisenstadt & around, Burg Forchtenstein, Wiesen, Neusiedler See, Rust, Mörbisch Am See, Purbach Am See, Neusiedl Am See, Podersdorf Am See, Seewinkel, Middle & Southern Burgenland, Lockenhaus & around and Güssing & around.
