Bathing areas of Lake Neusiedl

Lake Neusiedl bathing beaches

Water sports and swimming fun for all the family

Sun-seekers really get their money’s worth at the 320 km² steppe lake: There are so many bathing beaches to experience around Lake Neusiedl.

The perfect place both for those who want peaceful relaxation in the Burgenland sun and water sports enthusiasts looking for action.

The relatively shallow water, gently sloping access to the lake, and the wide range of activities on offer make Lake Neusiedl a paradise for families with children of all ages. 300 days of sunshine a year promise bathing fun for everyone, from spring until well into fall.

The large area and the prevailing winds offer excellent conditions for water sports enthusiasts. Whether surfing, kiting, or classic sailing; whether with a kayak on a journey of discovery through the reed bed or on a stand up paddle board: Newcomers and the curious can learn all kinds of water sports at the many surfing and sailing schools.

There are plenty of opportunities for relaxing bathing fun around the lake, from the family bathing beach in Illmitz and the kilometer-long accessible bathing beach in Podersdorf, to the bathing area with lots of natural shade in Weiden am See and the large resorts in Neusiedl am See, Rust, Mörbisch, and Breitenbrunn.

2,000 hours of sunshine await you at Lake Neusiedl!
