Picturesque Rust, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site, is easily the most popular village on the lake for the colorful pastel facades of its houses and for lake sports. Tourists flock here in summer to see storks nesting atop the Renaissance and Baroque houses in the well-preserved historic center. Be sure to look for Steckerl, a delicious local fish caught from Neusiedl Lake and grilled barbecue-style with spices. It's available in most restaurants, but only in the hot months of summer.
