If you haven't developed castle fatigue by this stage, head 40km south of Bad Tatzmannsdorf to Güssing, a peaceful town on the banks of the Strembach River. Here the arresting Burg Güssing rises dramatically over the river and town. The castle, a mix of ruin and renovation, contains plenty of weapons from the Turks and Hungarians, striking portraits from the 16th century and a tower with 360-degree views of the surrounding countryside. A modern 100m funicular railway helps those with weary legs reach the castle. The castle’s restaurant has a terrace with extensive views over the countryside.
If you missed the open-air museum in Bad Tatzmannsdorf, head 5km west of Güssing to the Freilichtmuseum at Gerersdorf. An hour or two could easily slip by while you explore the 30-odd buildings and their traditional furniture and fittings, which capture the rural culture of Burgenland in the 18th and 19th centuries.
