The landscape is characterised by rolling hills and basins, where small wine-growing and arable farming businesses are run. The largely preserved Kellergassen (cellar lanes) are of cultural-historical importance. The Weinviertel is the largest wine-growing region in Austria and the main focus is on the white wine varieties. The Weinviertel DAC is Austria’s first designation of origin in the region. There were 8,219 operating sites in 2013, which corresponds to a growth of 34% in the past 10 years. If one considers the purchasing power, then this is far above the Austrian average. However, the district of Mistelbach alone loses approximately € 66 million annually due to outflows of purchasing power to Vienna.


With the exception of the cities, the social infrastructure in the south is better than in the north. The most important supra-regional transport infrastructure is the northern motorway (A5). With regard to public transport, there are high-level S-Bahn connections with Nordbahn and Ostbahn, but this connection is inadequate in the West-East direction and off the main axes. The region has a high association density, and around 2,000 associations and 170 volunteer fire departments reflect the predominant municipality culture. In 2013, 287,351 overnight stays were recorded in the eastern Weinviertel, which reflects a positive development. However, in comparison to Austria, the Weinviertel region has below-average tourism intensity.
