The district of Mattersburg still belongs to the northern part of Burgenland. Hungary lies in the east, Lower Austria in the west. To the south lies the district of Oberpullendorf, to the north the district of Eisenstadt.
Embedded between the Ödenburger- and the Rosaliengebirge are also some villages, in which a Croatian minority is resident.

Mattersburg is the district capital of the district of the same name and was first mentioned in a document in 1202 as Villa Martini, received market rights in 1354 and was elevated to town status in 1926. From 02 July 1926 to 14 June 1924 the municipality was officially called Mattersdorf. Like all of Burgenland, the town belonged to Hungary (German-Western Hungary) until 1921 and had a Jewish population until 1938. Mattersburg is an economic centre with railway connections. One of the largest companies is the canning company "Felix Austria".

Mattersburg is also very active in sports. The football club has been playing in the highest league in Austria (Bundesliga) since 2003.

Places of interest, leisure, nature

Forchtenstein Castle lies in the Rosalia Mountains and is a well-known castle in Burgenland.

Bad Sauerbrunn with its spa centre is one of the most famous spa resorts in Austria.

Neudörfl/Leitha, known as a wine-growing community, is also called the Grinzing of Wiener Neustadt. In more than fifteen wine taverns the guests are spoiled with culinary delicacies. Companies such as "Funder-Max", "Laykam-Druck" or "Homogen" are also based in Neudörfl and offer work to many people in the region.

The Marzer Kogel borders on the municipalities of Marz, Rohrbach, Loipersbach and Schattendorf. The area was declared a nature reserve years ago because of its rare bird species.

In the region around Pöttelsdorf, red wine of the Blaufränkisch variety thrives in particular. Otto von Bismarck (1815 - 1898, German Chancellor 1862) already knew this excellent wine. There were numerous orders and many bottles of this noble wine migrated to Germany.

The strawberry community Wiesen lies at the foot of the Rosaliengebirge and is especially known in Central Europe for its jazz festivals.
