Marchegg

marchegg lower austria niederösterreichInhabitants: 2.900

The town of Marchegg is located in the Eastern part of the federal state Lower Austria. I came to Marchegg when I was travelling a long the Slovakian border from south to north.

Marchegg was built under the reign of King PÃ…â„¢emysl Ottokar II who wanted to have a fortress against the dangerous Hungarians. The location was perfect for that, because the river March was the perfect natural border to keep the Hungarians away from Ottokars Kingdom. The fortress town of Marchegg should strengthen the borderline.
