Afternoon with Clouds
Mörbisch am See
Mörbisch is a small town on the western shore of Lake Neusiedl
(Neusiedler See), 45 miles south of Vienna in the Burgenland Region.
The Mörbisch Operetta Festival, with its picturesque setting
on a floating stage in the lake, is only one of the attractions that draws visitors from all over to this quaint place.
The pedestrian friendly streets and paths are lined by beautifully kept old vintner houses, traditional flower and vegetable gardens, and quiet courtyards beyond. Excellent sailing on the lake enhances the region's appeal, as do miles of hiking and biking trails which lead through vineyards and along reedbeds into Hungary, from there on to the eastern shore of the lake on the Austrian side, and back to Mörbisch on the western lake shore.
The landscape around Mörbisch is a World Heritage Site.
A large part of its shores and reedbeds belong to
Neusiedler See and Fertö-Hanság National Parks.
