Following a guided tour through Weingut Gager, a winery in Deutschkreutz, I joined a tasting in the salesroom of the winery. After having several tastings in old vaults it was a pleasant variation to sit at a modern table in a stylish room.
A trip through Burgenland wouldn’t be complete without taking photos of storks. One can see their nests on many roofs in the easternmost state of Austria. Coincidentally, I found the nest with the most storks on top of a house that bore the name Burgenland.
‘Big’ surprise at a Heuriger in Burgenland: At the Schnitzelheuriger Posch, I got this large portion of Tafelspitz. It is a traditional Austrian dish made of beef.
At Deutschkreutz Castle (Schloss Deutschkreutz), I had a guided tour by its owner Anton Lehmden. He is a member of the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism. You find many of his works in the rooms of the castle.
