Landscape of Burgenland
South Burgenland - A paradise for connoisseurs

South Burgenland is a true paradise for epicurists and gourmet fans! A diverse arc stretches from culinary specialities such as apples, pears, free-range geese and fen steer through a vast herb variety to the iconic  Uhudler from the Weinidylle. Join us through South Burgenland.

Specialities of South Burgenland

Several pleasure regions have emerged in Burgenland. Here, South Burgenland has its own culinary specialities to offer. In the area around the "apple village" of Kukmirn, different fruit varieties flourish wonderfully thanks to the special micro-climate. Above all, dessert apples are the top sellers of this pleasure region. Even free-range geese find the best conditions on the meadows of South Burgenland. In approximately, 26 weeks, these grow into tasty Martini geese. Another Burgenland speciality is the Zickentaler Moorochse, or fen steer, which grazes the boundary zones of the natural conservation area of "Auwiesen Zickenbachtal". Here, cows of the Galloway and Angus species roam about, which provide a fine-fibred meat with delicate marbled fat thanks to being reared especially close to nature. Not least, South Burgenland is also know for its fine herbs which are drawn for spices and teas. 

Weinidylle South Burgenland – small in size and unique

The climate, landscape and the quality of the soil in South Burgenland are entirely special. Therefore, the wines produced here thrill with a special quality. Even if it is the smallest wine-growing region in Austria in terms of area, the Weinidylle is able to put great wines forward. This quality and uniqueness is highly esteemed on the national and international market.

The vineyards of the Weinidylle South Burgenland extend from the rocky soil around Rechnitz through the Eisenberg and the Deutsch-Schützener vineyard to the Jennersdorf district. While in the north, mainly white grapes (Welschriesling, Grüner Veltliner, Weißburgunder) are grown, around Deutsch-Schützen and Eisenberg, Blaufränkisch dominates as a red wine. At the Csaterberg near Kohfidisch, primarily fine white wines are pressed in the beautiful, picturesque environment with many wine cellars, and these can be tasted in a wine store with the Stein Museum. Along the Pinkatal Wine Route, from the Wintener vineyard through the Kulmer and Gaaser vineyard, in turn, fine mineral and fruity drops can be found.

Discover the wonderful environment on a bike tour and be enchanted by the beauty of the wine-growing region!

The Uhudler – a purely natural product

The Uhudler has established itself as a true speciality of South Burgenland. The delicate pink wine speciality is characterised by its intense aroma, which is reminiscent of wild strawberries or blackcurrants.

The Uhudler actually came about out of emergency. Around 1860, a major phylloxera epidemic led to the introduction of a special self-supporting variety from America, which was the only one to withstand the pest. However, the Uhudler fell into disrupute, which is why direct carrier wines were banned from the 1930s onwards. It was not until 1992 that Uhudler was officially able to celebrate its return. Today it is more popular than ever and the grapes produce Uhudler sparkling wine, jams and tea in addition to the classic wine.

Taste South Burgenland and discover the region with all your senses. You can find the perfect mixture of enjoyment, activity and relaxation in the AVITA Resort in Bad Tatzmannsdorf. We will be happy to respond to your non-binding request!
