Fishponds and reedbed with a good track record of migrants.
Over 240 bird species have been found at the Güssinger Fischteiche, making it one of the best places in southern Burgenland for birdwatching. The site is also easily accessible from the town and can be incorporated with a visit to the well-known castle nearby. Highlights include breeding Common Pochard and Great Crested Grebe, a heron colony with Grey Heron and Great Egret and summer migrants including Little Bittern and Savi's Warbler. In spring the site attracts waders such as Black-winged Stilt as well as passage birds such as Little Gull and Black Tern. The site also has some woodland, which contains Black Woodpecker, Hawfinch, Grey-headed Woodpecker, and there is a chance of White-tailed Eagle.
You can park in the main town car parks and walk across the road. Click on the P in the map for directions. The circular route indicated on the map is about 6 km. The paths in between the fishponds themselves are private, but birdwatchers are tolerated and local walkers often use these too. These paths offer the best views of the ponds.
