Carnuntum and Hainburg an der Donau

Until a few years ago, the village of Carnuntum was a yawning backwater on the Austrian plain and, along with its slightly larger neighbor, Hainburg, was the last stop before the Iron Curtain. But the fall of the wall turned the main road into a major throughway connecting East to West. The development of the Carnuntum archaeological complex and the rise of the Donau-Auen National Park (the last remaining intact wetlands in Central Europe) turned this once-forgotten region into a significant destination for travelers.
