Seebad Rust

A causeway leads through nearly a mile of reeds to the Seebad beach and boat landing, where you can take a sightseeing boat either as a round-trip or to another point on the lake. You can also rent a boat, swim, or enjoy a waterside drink or snack at an outdoor table.

Weingut Feiler-Artinger

Like many family-run wineries in Rust (most in Austria are family businesses), this one in the heart of town produces white and red sweet wine from the vineyards around Rust. Many are for sale, including a selection of organic wines.
