Lacus.Peiso

this is what the romans called the new settlers see, or in hungarian fertö tó. the specific steppe lake of europe must have been a slightly inhospitable area around the year 50 AD, as did emperor pliny in his travel stories about the effects of pannonia. he would be amazed if he saw the region today?

300 days of sun per year. vineyards, rain the eye can see. Paradeer and peppers. fig trees and recently even olives have been growing in burgenland – it is a natural area with 300 hours of sunshine per year.

the multicultural atmosphere still lives on in the pannonian region today – burgenland, which existed in 1921 as part of the royal kingdom of hungary, has preserved its ethnic diversity
also seen in mörbisch, several peoples settled in the course of history, since the Turkish siege in the 16th century and the subsequent resettlement, it has become a German-speaking village. today the place borders directly on hungary, which can be challenging on foot or by bike. exactly and this is also bordered by the mithras grotto, one of the most important roman monuments of pannonia.

Region

neusiedler see

on foot it is about 2 km to the shore of europe’s largest steppe lake. it’s only 800 meters to the unique reed belt.
however, the microclimate of this lake is still effective for miles inland. it brings mild winters and hot summers to the region, and thanks to the noble rot (botrytis cinerea) that infects the grapes in autumn, it helps produce high-quality sweet wines.

right next to casa.peiso there is a well-developed cycle path that circles the steppe lake. It is 87 km from Mörbisch via Illmitz around the lake. it is 130 km over hungary, so you need two days if you want to see something of the country and its people.

Mörbisch am see

mörbisch is the southernmost of places lying like a pearl on the west bank of the neusiedler lake, 75 km from vienna and 21 km from eisenstadt. with its courtyard lanes in the center of this street village, the typical northern Burgenland settlement core has been preserved.

The place has become famous for its wines and the lake festival, which every year in July and August abduct thousands of people into the melodic world of operettas and musicals: also the world-famous opera festival in the quarry of st. margarethen and the palaces and fortresses of burgenland are only a stone’s throw away.

mörbisch is simply ideal for bike tours – you can exit in three directions directly on the neusiedler see cycle path: with the bike ferry to seewinkel, towards neusiedl or towards hungary. the extensive vineyards around the village invite you to take relaxing walks that expand your horizons!

Rust

“The best thing about rust is the view of mörbisch,” we say. But the Rusters were already hardworking businessmen! as early as 1683, they cheered Emperor Leopold I with their sweet wine and were granted town charter for it. To do this, they had to bring 500 buckets of the noble Ausbruch to the vienna Hofburg. since then rust has been a free town.

the cityscape still tells of great history and rich traditions. rust is a city, albeit a very rural one. the ornate facades of the town houses are evidence of an interesting cultural history, shaped by the lake and the wine. the ideal place to stroll and enjoy, there are very nice wine tales and restaurants here.

nationalpark

the neusiedlersee -seewinkel national park was founded in 1993, but the first efforts in this direction had been made decades earlier.
the history of nature conservation on lake neusiedler see was written by the state of burgenland and several nature conservation organizations. it is a reflection of the increasing appreciation of these ecosystems.

In the national park center in Illmitz you can find out everything interesting about this unique natural area – also in the context of interesting events and guided tours.

Eisenstadt

small, but nice – that is the motto of the capital of Burgenland, which with its 14,000 inhabitants is a gem among Austria’s capital cities. In 1924, when the remaining soprons remained fixed with hungary, kismartion (until then eisenstadt was called in hungarian, named after the patron saint, saint martin) became the new capital of the area.

culturally, the town is unique. the esterházy dynasty has immortalized itself here with a magnificent building – the esterházy castle. It still exudes that baroque splendor that can be experienced live on a guided tour or during one of the music concerts in the castle park.
haydn’s music creates a “time machine feeling” and the familiar flair of the main street makes Eisenstadt a pleasant, small-town promenade. musical highlights can be experienced at matinees and concerts as part of the international “Herbstgold” festival in september. very pious pilgrims to the mountain church with the haydn mausoleum (what a morbid funeral story!) and the kalvarienberg, music fans devote themselves to haydn’s home (annually changing exhibitions) and his herb garden in the garden shed. archeology, geology, fauna and flora, art and cultural history of burgenland are documented in the state museum, and jewish customs in austria in the jewish museum in the former ghetto. insider tip: the gloriette above the city, fantastic views and a beautiful terrace for lunch or a coffee.

Ödenburg (Sopron)

to the dentist or the hairdresser? not only! the no longer so small border town has a picturesque old town. picturesque houses and historically valuable streetscapes from almost all architectural eras of the last 800 years, atmospheric courtyards – this is sopron or ödenburg, hungarian border metropolis and almost the capital of burgenland, had there been no popular vote in 1921 on remaining in hungary. Particularly worth seeing: the fire tower – great panoramic view of the city & region, as well as the city museums, in which the past of our region slumbers.

ideal for an excursion (by bike at a reasonable pace 50 minutes from casa.peiso). We can recommend our long-time friend Tamás Taschner as a particularly good city guide, he also organizes the funny “tractor audi” tours through the city’s vineyards
