Dürnkrut (Slovak: Kruta, Suchá Kruta, Czech: Suché Kruty) is a market town in the district of Gänserndorf in Austrian state Lower Austria. Castle Dürnkrut (pictured) is the well known ikon of the town. The town is agricultural with some noteworty busyneses. Crops grown in the flater areas are raps, corn, sunflowers and sugar beets. The roling hils are planted with wine graps by local wine makers.
Dürnkrut is located on the March river (border with Slovakia) which floods. The last big flod was in 2006 when many houses nearer to river were floded with 2 meters of water. Dürnkrut is located on the Austrian Railways Nordbahn line. In former times there was a big sugar factory that made the sugar beets into rafined sugar. It was closed down many years ago but some of the buildings still. The wine street has many old wines.
To sister town of Waidendorf is located 2 km away, and has even more on.
