Baroque palaces and a lake “where the leek grows”

You will find the two most famous Baroque palaces in the market town of Engelhartstetten: Schloss Hof and Niederweiden Palace. The district’s capital, Gänserndorf, is renowned for its many cultural attractions, summer scene, the traditional Feast of St Martin’s and more. There’s something going on here the whole year round! The idyllic township of Glinzendorf lies directly next to the Eastern Railway, while Gross-Enzersdorf, the “Gate to the Marchfeld”, boasts many impressive features such as a town wall that is around 600 years old. In the midst of the fertile farmland of the Marchfeld lies the smallest independent municipality in Lower Austria, Grosshofen, with an area of 6.18 km². In its environs, you will find Haringsee with its two cadastral communities of Fuchsenbigl and Straudorf and its red “plague cross”, set up because the small village had been spared from the cattle plague of 1882. The town of Lassee used to be called Lauchsee – which literally translates to “the lake where the leek grows”. Is this still true today? Why not set off on an exploration trail through this lovely little village and find out for yourself?
