Kittsee is an Austrian municipality in the District of Neusiedl am See, Burgenland.GeographyKittsee lies 32 km northeast from Neusiedl am See, on the Slovak border opposite Bratislava, with crossings (road and motorway European route E58) into the Bratislava suburb of Jarovce. Since December 21, 2007, no more checks are conducted at the crossing with Slovakia joining the Schengen Area.Kittsee is not divided into any districts.HistoryIn the Middle Ages, the settlement was situated in the Kingdom of Hungary, and was probably settled by Pecheneg border guards in the 11th century. There was a Hungarian royal castle on the site of the settlement as early as the 12th century. The first documented mention of the settlement was in 1291; the name Koeche was in use in 1390. It is thought that the name is of Hungarian origin and the older form was Küccse.Since the settlement guards the entrance of the Danube into Hungary, it often played a key role in the defense of Hungary. This was the gathering site of the crusader army of Frederick I in 1198. The town was the site of Géza II's battle with the Austrians, and the wedding of Béla, son of Béla IV and Kunigunda, niece of Ottokar II, King of Bohemia, in 1264. The peace treaty of Andrew III and Albert I was signed here in 1291. After 1363, the town was owned by the Scharfenecki, Szentgyörgyi, Esterházy and Batthyányi families.
