Neusiedl Lake is divided between Burgenland, Austria and Transdanubia, Hungary. It is the second largest lake of Hungary after Balaton and the largest in Austria (except of Lake Constance of which a small portion belongs to Austria). Neusiedl Lake has been nominated on the UNESCO World Heritage List as a cultural landscape for its unique representation of human landscape shaping over a long period of time. The traditional agricultural practices around the lake, many of which persist today, had a profound impact on the region's ecology. The area is rural and attracts visitors enjoying the natural landscape as well as the historic towns surrounding it.



The main town located at the lake is Neusiedl am See. The town toured most is Rust. Other towns include Purbach and Mörbisch.
