This old puszta (steppe) village on the east side of the lake has grown into a town with a moderate tourist business in summer. From Eisenstadt, take Route 50 northeast, through Purbach, cutting southeast on Route 51, via Podersdorf, to Illmitz. It's a 61km (38-mile) drive, which seems long because traffic must swing around the lake's northern perimeter before heading south to Illmitz.
