The town Marchegg is situated very close to Vienna (approximately 1 hour by car). It was founded by the king Přemysl Otakar in 1268. The great number of the sights reveals the history of the town. On the borders there are the nature reservations World-Wildlife: "Moravian Water Forests“ and „Kleiner Breitensee". They are suitable for family trips.
First mention about the fortress in Marchegg comes from 1344. The fortress was rebuilt to the castle later and today it is the seat of Regional Museum, together with Hunting and African Museum. The Museums are open from 15. March to the end of November, daily except Mondays 9am – 12pm and 1pm – 5pm.
The Cloister of the Queen Mary of the guild of St. Johannes. This guild of believers was founded in Switzerland in 1975. They were invited by Viennese archbishop in 1994 and they founded a cloister here. Their activities and the number of guests were the reason of planning of new cloister. This was consecrated on 2. September 2001 and the new church was sacred to Protestant Johannes.

Parish Church of St. Margaretha – medieval church in Marchegg, rebuilt in 18th and 19th Century. During the excavation the remains of stone chapel were founded here, but no historical documents have mentioned it.
Filial Church – in this church situated close to the station you can see the Crucifix of Pallfy. It comes from garden chapel of the count Pallfy (from that is derived the name). It was made by the sculpturer Jörg Petel in 1631.
