Levél lies along the highway M1 6 km both from Mosonmagyaróvár and also from the Austrian border. Its first residents were probably Petchenegs, who defended the border at the time of foundation of the Hungarian state. The village was destroyed during the Turkish campaign in the 16th century and then Saxons settled here replacing the expelled Hungarian inhabitants. As a memento of the Turkish rule the watch-tower has been kept, to which the catholic Saxons added a church of one nave later. The... tovább Lutheran church was built in the 13th century but its tower was erected in 1884. Lajos Gulyás, the martyr pastor of the 1956 revolution is buried here. The nearby Lajta-river and the Berek-wood offer a great opportunity of active recreation for fishermen and for hikers.
