Austria: Lake Neusiedl Area

Today I got three postcards: one from Austria, one from Luxembourg and one from Canada.

The card from Austria shows various views of the Lake Neusiedl Area. The Lake Neusiedl is a lake in the Austrian State of Burgenland on the border with Hungary. It is the largest endorheic lake in Central Europe and the largest lake in Austria. The reed around the lake is an important habitat for animals like migratory birds. The area is especially known for its white storks. It is a meeting place of different cultures for already eight millennia. Since 2001 is the Fertö / Neusiedlersee Cultural Landscape a joint UNESCO World Heritage Site of Austria and Hungary.
