The "royal free city" of Rust with its 1,900 inhabitants is the smallest administrative district in Austria. The town not only captivates visitors with its architectural beauty, but also with its charming ambience that is marked by the combination of historic architecture and country life.
This charming little town is also able to look back on an eventful history, in which viticulture and the high quality of wine were of great significance. Today Rust is still the town of wine connoisseurs, who take part in seminars at the Austrian wine academy or enjoy fine wines directly at the winegrowers or in the "Buschenschank" wine taverns. There's something to do for everyone here - no matter whether you're lovers of the arts and culture, sports enthusiasts or people simply looking for rest and relaxation. The wide range of offers and fantastic landscape around Lake Neusiedl are sure to turn everyone into connoisseurs.
