Eckartsau (Czech: Krcov) is a town in the district of Gänserndorf in the Austrian state of Lower Austria.

History

Schloss Eckartsau was the last residence of Charles I of Austria prior to his flight from the former Austria-Hungary in 1919.

The present Eckartsau was formed in 1971 from the union of the market town Eckartsau with Witzelsdorf and the villages Kopfstetten, Pframa and Wagram.
