Welcome to Neusiedler See
But best of all, there are acres of vineyards, making some of Austria’s most sought-after and innovative wines. Rust, on the western shore of the lake, is a perfect place to sample wine in a Heuriger (wine tavern), as is Oggau.
The area is also perfect for cycling: a flat cycle track winds all the way round the reed beds, the ferries scuttling across the lake carry bikes, and most hotels and pensions cater well to cyclists. It’s possible to do a full circuit of the lake with a short foray into Hungarian territory.
