History and infrastructure

The place name Wartegg (Warteck) refers to a border post against the Hungarians , which can be dated back to the 10th or 11th century. The Kingdom of Hungary was founded around the year 1000, at which time the Mark Steyer came into being . Since Hungary belonged to the Habsburg Monarchy, the border location with German West Hungary lost its importance. After the First World War, Burgenland came to Austria in 1921, which shifted the state border eastwards to the triangle of three countries.

The place lies on the edge of the cross-border nature park Raab-Őrség-Goričko , the Austrian part is the Burgenland nature park Raab . The Neuhauser Hügelland cycle path  (B70) leads through the village , with a 43.3 km long circuit from St. Martin via Oberdrosen , Tauka , Kalch , Neuhaus am Klausenbach , the Hirzenriegel , Welten and Doiber back to St. Martin.
