Authentic, friendly, sunny and enjoyable. This is South Burgenland in a nutshell.
Anyone who explores the south of Burgenland will immediately feel it: this is different from the rest of Austria. The landscape reminds of Tuscany. Mild climate, gentle hills, well-maintained vineyards and hospitable locals make the south of Burgenland something very special indeed.
But leisure cyclists can expect much more. There are three different nature parks to explore and enjoy, gorgeous brook and river landscapes, castles as well as palaces, Toque-awarded restaurants plus wine taverns, and on top of that many “paradise inns” where you can discover and sample delicacies from the region. A fine drop of South Burgenland wine is definitely a must. A classic is the typical dark Blaufränkisch.
The landscape of South Burgenland is gently hilly. Sporty cyclists also get here what their heart desires. Cross-border routes take you to other cultures and their landscapes.
