Sunny Central Burgenland

Pampered in the sun and a close relationship with wine


The region also rightly bears the name “Sunny land”. Here the sun not only comes out earlier and more often, but also lingers longer than anywhere else.

A gently hilly area with idyllic orchards and vineyards, extensive deciduous forests and wide open fields. The region has long been known to culture lovers: Franz Liszt was born in Raiding. A museum, concert hall and festival honor him and his work.

Other excursion destinations in the region are Lockenhaus Castle, Lackenbach Castle, Kobersdorf Castle and the Landsee Castle Ruins, once the largest weir system in Central Europe.

If you want to be active, you’ll never get bored in Mittelburgenland. Trolley rides along the romantic railway through the Blaufränkischland, golfing, climbing in the ropes course or bike tours on the well-developed bike trails. There is plenty of sunshine for everyone here.

At Europe’s leading thermal bath for babies and toddlers, the Sonnentherme in Lutzmannsburg, families can enjoy an offer that is fully tailored to the needs of bathers both large and small. Everything has been thought of here, from changing tables to dining areas and baby and children’s saunas to adventure slides with the latest technology, including a virtual reality experience.

Central Burgenland has a close relationship with wine. The long traditional handling of the Blaufränkisch grape variety also gave the wine region its name “Blaufränkischland Mittelburgenland”. The popular red wines are lovingly and carefully cultivated in over 2,000 hectares of vineyards. The hotspots of viticulture are Deutschkreutz, Horitschon, Neckenmarkt, Lutzmannsburg and Raiding. Here, wine can not only be tasted in vinotheques and from the farm, but also celebrated at wine events from May to November. Pure enjoyment!
