"Boogieland" by Corrina Bauer
Hiding in the southern corner of Burgenland sits the Boogieland - a secret and magic place which cannot be found on any map but is definetely worth a visit!
Have you ever heard of Uhudler, Kernöl or Grammelbogatscherl? No? Your visit to Boogieland is long overdue! Although Boogieland cannot be found on any map, it's a picturesque and very special region of Southern Burgenland, Austria's smallest and poorest county. It is home to wonderful people who have one thing in common: they don't care about rules and they live their own dream. May it be young hippies who enjoy the new found country life or farmers who kept producing Uhudler wine although it was prohibited throughout many times and might even go back into prohibition in a few years due to EU law. As long as it is still legal you should visit one of the family run Buschenschänke and enjoy Uhudler and its unique smell of strawberries and have delicious Grammelbogatscherl, small bread rolls with greaves, while feeling the magic of Boogieland. But be aware: there goes the rumour that everybody who visits Boogieland once, doesn't want to leave anymore. If this happens to you too, you are welcome to stay forever!
