Lake Neusiedl is the second largest steppe lake in Central Europe and is located at the border between Austria and Hungary. The lake extends to 315 km², of which 240 km² are located on Austrian and 75 km² on Hungarian territory. From north to south, the lake is about 36 km long, and it is between 6 and 12 km wide from east to west. On average, the lake lies at 115.45 m above the Adriatic Sea and is no more than 1.8 m deep. Rainfall and aridity can cause significant floods and significant decreases in the lake's level respectively. In the past, the lake disappeared completely several times, most recently in the beginning of the 20th century.
The national parks Neusiedler See-Seewinkel in Austria and Fertő-Hanság in Hungary were together accepted as World Heritage Site in 2001.
The region of Lake Neusiedl draws significant numbers of tourists. The lake is known as the "Sea of the Viennese," as it offers ample opportunities for sailing and windsurfing. There is also some commercial fishing.

Magnifique prise de vue sur cinq plans. J'aime bien la composition avec les cheveaux et le bateau juste au bon endroit. Tu aurais dû avoir plus de critiques pour cette photo, je la trouve originale. Excellente note.
