Raiding (German pronunciation: [ˈʁaɪdɪŋ]; Hungarian: Doborján, Hungarian pronunciation: [ˈdoborjaːn], Croatian: Rajnof) is a small Austrian market town in the District of Oberpullendorf, Burgenland. It is the birthplace of Franz Liszt.
The municipality lies on Raiding Creek in Middle Burgenland; Raiding is the only borough in the municipality.
Raiding was first documented in 1425 as Dobornya.
Like the rest of Burgenland, Raiding belonged to Hungary from c. 900 to 1920/21. After the end of the First World War, Western Hungary was given to Austria with the Treaties of St. Germain and Trianon; there it formed the new province of Burgenland.
