Beautiful Burgenland borders Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia. With a history as old as the Stone Age, Burgenland has been a Roman possession, the location of a long-shifting border with Hungary and a pivotal player in the fall of the Iron Curtain. Burgenland has approximately 300,000 residents with the Hungarian and the Burgenland Croatian dialects enjoying official recognition. This is reflected in the architecture of many Burgenland holiday homes. Castles and churches are now surrounded by resorts and vineyards, though Burgenland has not forgotten its past. Local pride runs high in Burgenland, and restoration and preservation activities see considerable official support. Excavation is under way in some parts of Burgenland, as archaeologists comb this former Roman territory for artefacts from the empire. You will find many exquisitely maintained Burgenland holiday homes.
Experience the delightful Austrian countryside
The great composer Franz Liszt enjoyed contemporary success, who continues to be celebrated today and he almost certainly found inspiration in the austere, ancient castles that dot the green hills upon his stay here. You never know, perhaps you find that same inspiration that he experienced in the 19th Century whilst staying in a Burgenland holiday apartment. Castle enthusiasts who flock to the Burgenland may find taking to the skies is the best way to take in the sprawling structures. Hot air balloons are a growing tourist attraction, as the forested lands and imposing cathedrals here make for excellent airborne scenery. A thick greenbelt and low population density improve the quality of life in villages and towns. Burgenland town life is highly social, with locals noted for their welcoming attitude towards visitors and immigrants. A short stay in a Burgenland self catering holiday home or in an apartment here is sure to be enough to make you want to come back year after year!
