Our visitors do not concern themselves with state borders and they appreciate interesting tourist attractions. The development of tourism across the states is of great importance to me and contributes to the development of tourism in a sustainable way in the wake of the Exhibition of Lower Austria .

With its 2,500 kilometres of excellent cycle routes the Burgenland region is a paradise for cyclists. The cross-border cycle project further improves the offers for cyclists in the Burgenland region. Last but not least, it represents an excellent opportunity for the local economy to develop the tourism industry.

Governor Dr Erwin Pröll

Governor Hans Niessl

Between the major urban centres Vienna and Bratislava, the Römerland Carnuntum – Marchfeld region has become the most popular holiday destination area. Together with the neighbouring region Neusiedlersee, it combines a wealth of natural and cultural attractions with a great development and market potential.

I am pleased that we managed to initiate this cross-border project as part of the Exhibition of Lower Austria. The good partnership between the Burgenland region and Lower Austria is now also reflected in tourism – with a showpiece project which both regions are very likely to benefit from.

Regional minister for tourism Dr Petra Bohuslav

Provincial parliament member Michaela Resetar


EXPLORER TOUR DANUBE MEETS LAKE NEUSIEDL “Wind, wine and water” – that’s the motto of the 97 kilometre explorer cycle tour that takes you from the fragrant vineyards along the Danube to the red-lined shores of Lake Neusiedl. Be it Roman history close enough to touch or baroque joie de vivre – there is certainly no shortage of historical attractions. There is also plenty to discover for nature lovers: the green alluvial forests of the Danube Floodplains National Park or the unspoilt reed beds of the Lake Neusiedl-Seewinkel National Park – the Explorer tour delivers to its promises. The Lake Neusiedl

region is also an official UNESCO world heritage area. There are many opportunities along the easy level route to stop off for a glass of water or wine, or to indulge in some culinary delicacies. The train journey to the three individual parts of the route, from Neusiedl am See via Bruck an der Leitha to Petronell Carnuntum, from Petronell Carnuntum to Kittsee and from Kittsee nach Neusiedl am See, is just as relaxing. Starting and end points are all connected to the public transport network. Plan your own individual cycle tour. The following pages tell you all about the regions and their cultural attractions and leisure facilities as well as ways to connect to other cycle routes. 3

The Explorer Tour has much to offer: from excellent public transport connections (see next page), beautiful rest areas for cyclists and cyclist-friendly businesses to the many additional offers such as e-mobility and electric charging stations, bike hire, Nextbike bike hire and cycle taxis. We provide the opportunities. You have the choice. The latest excursion guides, an accommodation list and additional information is available from the Danube regional office Römerland Carnuntum-Marchfeld or from the tourism office of Lake Neusiedl. Information about all tours and additional information is also available online from the tours’ individual websites.

As its motto “Wind, Wine and Water” suggests, there is plenty to see while on the Explorer Tour. For example, you can find out all about the topic of wind in the wind information centre in Prellenkirchen. Or you can taste the region’s fine wines in the historical cellars of Edelstal. Water will be your constant companion while on the Explorer Tour. Be it in the form of the impressive Danube floodplains, the revitalising lidos of Lake Neusiedl or the thirst-quenching mineral water known as Römerquelle. Your thirst for knowledge will also be satisfied. There is plenty of culture to explore, from the Roman excavations in Petronell-Carnuntum and the medieval town centre of Bruck an der Leitha all the way to the largest private collection of paintings in Rohrau Castle.
