Geography Deutschkreutz lies in Middle Burgenland. It is divided into the districts of Deutschkreutz and Girm. The town, like its neighbors Unterpetersdorf, Horitschon, and Neckenmarkt, is located in Blaufränkischland. History Deutschkreutz has been a market town since 1340 (no documention 1370-1429). The town belonged to Hungary as part of Sopron County until 1920/21. After the end of World War I, the territory was given to Austria by the Treaties of St. Germain and Trianon.
