Southern Styria – based in one hotel

Cycling in the Country of Vines and Volcanoes

7 Days / 6 Nights
Cyclists between vines in the evening atmosphere

If locals of a country holiday in a region, then it must be a great destination, right? Southern Styria just one of those places in Austria! Our tour based in one hotel through this special region below Graz combines great views, varied activities and numerous hours of sunshine. One thing needs to be emphasised again: Southern Styria is widely known for its delicious cuisine - this is included in the trip in the form of a tasty menu half board.

The starting point of the tour is the enchanting municipality of Mureck, surrounded by idyllic nature. Use the breaks to take a walk through the old town or to the unique ship mill. The concept of the tour based in one hotel is actually quite simple: one accommodation serves as a "base station" from which day cycling tours lead.

Don't forget your swimwear, because a day at the thermal baths is on the tour's agenda, as well as visits to one of the excellent wineries and a pumpkin seed oil mill. On day 4, you will cross the border into Slovenia in a detour, where great views and cultural impressions await you.

  • The thermal baths in Bad Radkersburg: Sauna, jacuzzi or slides - the Park Thermal Baths offer plenty of relaxation, but also numerous attractions. Enjoy the soothing effect of the regional thermal springs!
  • Magnificent views in the South Styrian Wine Route: Admittedly - vineyards mean sometimes hilly tours, but also grandiose views. And you can hardly get enough of them in Southern Styria. The award-winning wine, the regional delicacies and above all the warm hospitality of the people do the rest.
  • Tasting of the famous pumpkin seed oil: It is probably Styria's most famous export: pumpkin seed oil. The so-called "black gold" with the characteristic nutty taste. The included visit to an oil mill is of course accompanied by a tasting.
  • The Schlossberg with clock tower in Graz: The Styrian capital is certainly one of the most charming cities in Austria. The southern atmosphere, great gastronomy and the beautiful old town - what more could you want? Enjoy the view from one of the city's "rooftop" bars, such as Area 5. This rather studenty eatery is located on Jakominiplatz and, in addition to said panaromas, also offers the concept of the ‘Bausatz-Lokal’, which is an interesting change from the quaint and cosy ‘Buschenschenken’.

Overall, the Sternfahrt in Südsteiermark can be described as a leisurely tour with stage lengths between 30 and 65 km. On the Murradweg you follow one of the most beautiful cycle paths in Austria, not to mention the natural scenery. Experience it for yourself!

Itinerary at a glance

The South Styrian Wine Route enchants with magnificent views and fine wines. A pumpkin seed oil tasting is a culinary delight. Graz offers cultural enjoyment and the thermal spa in Bad Radkersburg is a great place to relax.

Welcome drink, welcome briefing/information meeting and bike fitting.

You will follow the river Mur eastwards to Bad Radkersburg. The thermal bath's wonderfully warm water is awaiting you (admission included!). On your way back to Mureck, you will ride your bike through the floodplains along the Mur cycle path. 

The day will start with a transfer to the South Styrian Wine Road where you partake in some wine tasting at one of the excellent wineries (included in the tour price!). Then you will cycle along the Wine Road via Gamlitz and Ehrenhausen back to your hotel.

Cycling without borders! Already the river Mur forms the border with Slovenia. In Slovenia you will cycle on beautiful paths and get great views throughout the day.

On the fifth day, you will take the train to Graz. The 2003 European Cultural Capital invites you for a visit. Afterwards, you will cycle along the wonderful Mur cycle path via Seggau and then back to Mureck.

The black gold - pumpkin seed oil - is what has made Styria famous. Nowhere else will you find higher quality oil than here. The route will lead you through the  area where the pumpkins are grown and of course, to a mill where you will be able to watch the production process (admission included!).
