Eisenstadt

eisenstadt burgenlandInhabitants: 12.200

Eisenstadt is the capital and centre of the federal state Burgenland.

Eisenstadt was mentioned the first time in a document in the year 1118 as "Castrum Ferrum". Since 800 the people of the Bavarians were settling in and around Eisenstadt.

In 1373 Eisenstadt was extended in a fortress. A wall was built around the city and inside of the walls a water castle. In that time also the name of the city was changed into "Eysenstat", which should symbolize the strength of the fortress (eysen = strong, iron, therefor Eisenstadt).

But the fortress of Eisenstadt was not strong enough in 1529 and 1532 when Turkish soldiers took the city two times.

Eisenstadt became a Hungarian city in the year 1648. It was the dynasty of Esterhazy who was the owner of Eisenstadt until the end of the first world war in 1918. In 1925 Eisenstadt became a part of Austria and the capital of the new created federal state Burgenland.
