Culture by the Steppe Lake
All cultural events at Lake Neusiedl are within easy reach of Illmitz. Travel elegantly by ferry to the Mörbischer Seefestspiele in summer (July and August). Within about 20 minutes you can switch to the western shore of the lake and after the relaxing boat ride you can enjoy the operetta spectacle on the lake stage.
Village Museum Mönchhof
"Pure Folk Culture", which can be found in the approximately 35 rebuilt buildings, all from the heath land. Here, as a museum visitor, you can enter the houses, linger in the rooms, reminisce, or just simply let the atmosphere sink in on you.
The provincial capital of Burgenland is Eisenstadt, which is best reached from Illmitz by car or bus. After about an hour driving time, one is greeted by the remarkable Esterházy Castle in its full beauty.
Esterházy Palace in Eisenstadt is one of the most beautiful baroque palaces in Austria and presents a fascinating view of the resplendent life once lived at the court of the Princes Esterházy.
But the palace is still the hub of the cultural scene today and regularly provides the picturesque backdrop for festivities and social events.
