Bathing Lakes in Burgenland

Often overshadowed by better known destinations, Burgenland is decidedly different. There are no high mountains here and very little snow, but 300 days of annual sunshine with a wonderfully mild climate.

Neusiedler See

With 300 days of sunshine per year, the Neusiedler See is every sun worshipper's idea of heaven. Europe’s westernmost steppe lake and the largest lake in Austria, it stretches over 320km², yet is no more than 1.8m deep. The shallow water warms up very quickly in the summer making the lake popular with families. The Neusiedler See is also famous within the windsurfing community for its reliable winds.

Facilities: Bathing beaches, boat rentals, sailing, kite surfing and windsurfing schools, moorings, campsites, hotels
