The Land

The landscape of north Burgenland is shaped by the impressive stretch of water, the Neusiedler lake. This, the biggest "steppe lake" of central Europe, delights the visitor with its varied flora and fauna.

The "Neusiedler lake national park" is home to many rare birds. Every year friends of nature and scientists travel here to record the impressive spectrum of wildlife in its original, undisturbed territory. The spreading landscape plain of the northern Seewinkel flows into the southern hill landscape.

Frauenkirchen, already documented in 1342, lies in the northern part of the area, near the eastern shore of the lake. It is 65 km distant from Vienna, the state capital - an hour's drive.
