Jois
A WELCOMING HOLIDAY DESTINATION


The idyllic wine village beside lake Neusiedl sits on the Leithagebirge’ hills’ gentle slopes, in the world cultural heritage nature reserve. Adults and children feel equally at home here, because Jois places great emphasis on warm-heartedness.

The village’s hospitable establishments are characterised by a friendly atmosphere and thoughtful comfort. You can enjoy the superb cuisine and Jois wines, which have a far-reaching reputation, in leafy bowers.

The unspoiled scenery and fantastic views of the lake can be savoured during bike rides in the cherry blossom orchards or a romantic walk through the hilly vineyards. The natural bathing lake is perfect for swimming, boating, sailing, surfing, kite boarding and paddle boarding.

The numerous, significant archaeological finds in Jois and the surrounding area make it one of Burgenland’s oldest settlements. It is said that people lived here more than 8,000 years ago.

The local history museum, which has been put together with great care, exhibits Stone Age finds and provides an insight into the life of the people who lived in this traditional village. The parish church dating from 1757, which contains valuable Baroque statues, and the newly designed wine educational trail, are both worth visiting.

There are numerous atmospheric events in Jois throughout the year, the most important being Joiser Martiniloben in November (wine-tasting tours of the local cellars), Joiser Kulturtage (wine, food, art and culture) in mid-July, Joiser Renommee - a wine-growers’ association promoting a particular cuvée, Wein am Hauptplatz (Wine in the Main Square), the Gartenfest garden festival and “Wild in der Wildnis” (“Game in the Wild” gourmet experience).

Whether you are looking for a restful or an active holiday, whether you’re a lone traveller, a couple, a family, or a group, you should look forward to your holiday in Jois, because you’ve found a warm, welcoming holiday destination.
