Set on the shore of the Neusiedler See 30 mi/50 km southeast of Vienna (near the border with Hungary), Rust, Austria, is known as the "Home of the Storks": The big birds nest there from April to mid-August.

While in Rust, visit its oldest church, Fischerkirche, which dates from the 12th century, or enjoy the lakeside and sample the local wine in rustic taverns (to the accompaniment of Gypsy music). The green boughs draped over some of the tavern doors indicate that you may enter and taste the year's new wine.
