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.
Opernfestspiele St. Margarethen
Every year, opera fans are attracted to the Opera Festival of St. Margarethen. The incredible natural stage is the venue for masterpieces from Verdi to Puccini. Stars from the opera scene love the wild and romantic settings in one of the most beautiful wine regions by the lake.
Nova Rock Festival
The Nova Rock Festival in Nickelsdorf has already made a name for itself far beyond Austria's borders. Superstars from around the world feel at home in the 'Pannonia Fields'. An absolute must for music freaks!
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. Lovers of the music of Joseph Haydn follow the trails of the great composer at the 'International Haydn Days' in September at the Castle.
