My visit to the town of Rust was one of the highlights of my trip to Burgenland in eastern Austria in May 2011. As soon as I got out of my car I spotted several storks’ nests on the the chimneys.

There was a stork information tile board which looked liked it had been hand written and painted.

The pedestrianised town square is very pretty. You can find public toilets at the top end of the square.

There’s a fair selection of cafes and restaurants in the town, most with outdoor seating.

Next I drove down to the shores of Lake Neusiedl, about a mile from the centre of town, where I was able to park  free of charge for one hour. I decided to go into the Katamaran Restaurant/Cafe for a coffee with a lake view.

But I couldn’t resist a piece of their cake, it was so hard to decide which cake to select. I plumped for  the chocolate and banana creation.
