General descriptionEmbedded within the fascinating countryside of the Danube-Auen National Park and surrounded by the two cosmopolitan cities Vienna and Bratislava lies Hainburg. The Wienertor, the largest medieval gateway in Europe and one of three town gateways, is also a gateway into the past. Numerous buildings represent architectural styles from many epochs. Since its founding in 1050, the town has expereinced many highs and lows. The Habsburgs followed the Babenbergs, and with them came centuries of executions and war. Hungary and Turkey ravaged the town on many occasions. The two world wars also left their mark. Today, Hainburg is once again the international border town between West and East Europe, and a starting off point for walks in the Hainburg wetlands.
