Burgenland literally means "Land of castles," and fewer place names are more apt, as this area protected nearby Vienna from marauding Turks centuries ago. This is one of Austria's best wine-producing regions - its Heurigens are especially worth visiting. Bird lovers will love Lake Neusiedel and affiliated Seewinkel National Park, especially its storks. Esterházy Palace in Eisenstadt, long associated with Joseph Haydn, is another lovely destination. Rust, an authentic medieval town, has a charming church dedicated to fishermen.
