In the middle of the sunny Marchfeld – not far from the former imperial capital Vienna, the idyllic Marchfelderhof is located and looks just like a romantic country chateau. You can literally feel the pulsation of history in these old walls.
From 1258 Deutsch-Wagram appears for the first time in old certificates under the name “Wachrain”. This small peasant village is going to make a few headlines in its history. Dependent on the geographical location, the Marchfelder farmers had to fend Huns, Avars, Kurucs, Magyars, Swedish and French.
Not far from here- at a battle in Jedenspeigen in 1278, a dynasty, that ruled until 1918, took over and started an empire – the Habsburgers!
In 1809 there was the battle in Wagram between the armies of archduke Karl and the armies of Napoleon.
In 1837 was the journey of the first steam railway from Floridsdorf to Deutsch-Wagram.
Already in that distant time, Marchfelderhof has been a popular and folky tavern, with its own agriculture, butchery, store, a ballroom and accommodations for farmers, traders and militaries.
In 1809 the French emperor, Napoleon I., has been here
also emperor Franz Josef I. resided here on occasion of a visit in 1901.
The Boceks belonged to the still existing ancient-Wagram families, their existence goes back to the very old days. The maternal ancestors came from Regensburg and were confessed traders. They settled in the 17th century and built a considerable building.
