Burgenland

Welcome to the Burgenland

Welcome to Burgenland

Burgenland is Austria's most Eastern province and only joined the Republic in 1921. Before that Burgenland was under Hungarian administration and called "Western Hungary" or "Vierburgenland" (meaning "four castle land").

Burgenland can boast a string of castles and fortresses known as the "Schlösserstraße" or "Road of Castles". Spanning from Burg Bernstein in the North, through Burg Lockenhaus, Burg Schlaining, Schloss Burgau and Burg Güssing and over the border into Styria the Riegersburg. Since the Burgenland is anything but alpine, the "Road of Castles" is suitable for cycling excursions.

The Town and District of Jennersdorf

The District of Jennersdorf is at the very southern tip of the province of Burgenland. It made up of 12 administrative areas.

Jennersdorf - The Town

Jennersdorf – Rural even by Burgenland standards.

Jennersdorf has approximately 4,000 residents and is a the district capital (Bezirkshauptstadt), which makes it the administrative, educational and economic powerhouse of the area. That being said, it's not 'much of a metropolis since southern Burgenland is very rural and not very densely populated. Most international (or domestic) visitors will come to Jennerdorf because it is proximity to the Steirische Thermenland (Styrian Spa Region) and especially the thermal spa of Loipersdorf.

The eastern provinces of Austria have served as a buffer against Magyar tribes and the Turks; from Lower Austria in the north through Burgenland to Styria and Crinthia in the south.

Burgenland and Styria offer great opportunities to explore these castles and - at the same time - follow a "off the beaten track" itinerary.

A total of 18 castles ("Burg" or "Schloss" in German the former a more military the latter a more palace like building,) form a kind of cordon and are now called "Die Schlösserstraße" ("The Road of Castles"). This string of castles was of significant importance and has left an impact on regional culture. The castles are all individually maintained (often privately) and follow their own policy. However they do cooperate in joint tourist and marketing efforts.

The Schlösserstraße passes through some of the best wine regions of Austria. The following are the most notable castles along the route:

The Schlösserstraße in the North.
Burg Bernstein

Burg Bernstein

Burg Bernstein is owned by the heirs of the Counts of Almasy. Sounds familiar? You might have seen "The English Patient" (1996) or read the novel (better than the book). The name given to the "English" patient was Lazlo Almasy and was in fact a Hungarian count - the real Almasy′s family still lives on this scenic castle. Almasy himself was really a pilot, a successful car mechanic and racer he is buried in Salzburg.

Burg Lockenhaus

Burg Lockenhaus

The ancient walls of the Burg Lockenhaus are similarly impressive. The castle has a nature reserve stretching into Hungarian lands and a conference hotel to accommodate up to 600 people.

South of it is Burg Schlaining, a fairy-tale like castle that is also the main site of the "European Museum of Peace and Violence". There are public exhibitions that change frequently. The nearby village of Schlaining has some lovely spots in its medieval centre, several interesting churches and a synagogue.

Austria is blessed with a whole range of former volcanic zones. Hot springs feed spas developed by the wellness tourism industries.
