Haydn Express - Experience Train to Eisenstadt, Austria

Eisenstadt is the capital of Burgenland province lying at the foot of Mountain Leitha. It is the smallest provincial capital in Austria with about 14000 inhabitants.  Former dwelling of Eszterházy princes still grants a lot for its visitors. Attractions: the Mountain church (Bergkirche) next to the Eszterházy palace, the St. Martin Dome, the palace park – the former baroque garden, which was rebuilt to a English landscape park in the 1800-s – with its greenhouses. At the Gloriette we get a bit closer to sky, and have a picturesque view over the city. Since it was built on the top of a mountain we can look into the depths of Brandenburg spirit.

Jois (Nyulas)
Jois (Nyulas in Hungarian) is a small settlement laying along the northern bank of Lake Neusiedl (Fertõ tó in Hungarian) and it has several attractions: Burial mounds dating back to the Halstatt period, the winery guided trail and a church built in the 18th century.

The winery guided trail of the settlement presents the history of the village and wine-growing through eleven stations.
Its paris church dates back to 1757, where we can find valuable baroque statues. The local history museum presents the daily life of period villagers by about 1200 exhibits. A natural spring and picnic place called Ochsenbrunnen can be found at the border of the village. The settlement is also an ideal centre for longer or shorter bike tours on the shore of the lake Neusiedl.
