Lake Neusiedl has a Mediterranean atmosphere - gently rolling vineyards, salt lakes and reed belts characterise this landscape. Your gaze wanders far over the Pannonian Steppe. With 300 days of sunshine a year, beautiful weather is almost guaranteed. While this natural landscape is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Vienna, Baden and Bratislava are centres of culture and nightlife.
