Marchfeld-Donauauen


Carnuntum, Hainburg and Rohrau

At the biggest Roman army camp near Vienna, in Carnuntum,  you will find out how the Roman soldiers and their families lived, what they ate and drank. Hainburg is full of medieval walls, towers and city gates which give it a very special kind of flair. A few kilometers from it, in Rohrau, we will visit the house where Josef Haydn was born. Not far from there is the Renaissance palace which houses the most important "private" collection of Baroque paintings in Austria and where Haydns mother once worked as a cook.

Nordbahn and Railway Museum

The Nordbahn (northern railway) was one of the major routes of traffic in the times of the Austrian Empire. After 1918, but especially because of the Iron Curtain, it lost its importance. On this trip you will relive history and be able to touch it during a visit to the railway museum in Strasshof, where you will see original locomotives, an engine shed  and a miniature railway.

Marchfeld
