Think you know the Marchfeld? Fertile fields, asparagus, oil? Flat all over, no ups and downs, and few mountain goats? But beyond that? Isn’t there something worth discovering – at least for families, lovers of nature, the Baroque, history and gardens? For the young, the old, for neighbours and friends? For anyone, in fact, who is open to new journeys?
The five Marchfeld castles - Schloss Hof, Niederweiden, Eckartsau, Marchegg and Orth - are the answer. Discover where the most passionate hunter decided to stop hunting and settle down. Learn about where storks brought bundles of joy – and the other way around. Marchfeld is “Schlösserreich”: rich in castles. Explore this fascinating Schlösserreich, where the elegance of five castles converges with the magnificence of nature.
Out into nature, into the wetland meadows around Danube and March. Just behind one big city and before the next. The National Park Donau-Auen & the WWF stork's preserve as a hotspot of biodiversity. Equally splendid, but less wild: the castle's gardens. As a place to rest, of idleness, wonder, observation, enjoyment, learning and - above all - life.
