The climate in Styria

Styria, especially southern Styria, is influenced by the sunny climate of the Mediterranean. The so–called Adriatic highs in the south of the state are responsible for the fact that here, especially in autumn, very mild temperatures prevail. But also for the rest of the year, southern Styria, where our bike tours are mainly based, benefits from the climate. The best cycling weather, pleasant temperatures and lots of sunshine promise an unforgettable cycling holiday.

Snacks and wine

The Styrian cuisine

Anyone who has ever been on holiday in Styria will automatically open the top button on their trousers at the memory of the luscious ‘Brettljausen’, the delicious spreads, the homemade bread and the sweet buns – because one thing is clear: the Styrian cuisine is no diet food! But holiday time is no place for austerity anyway. The Styrian specialty par excellence is pumpkin seed oil. The black delicacy tastes amazing on potato salad, bean salad or drizzled over creamy pumpkin sup. The chocolate from Zotter is well known, as well as the wonderfully tasty Vulkano ham. At least once you should spoil yourself in a rustic tavern. Order a Brettljause – where the portions are large! The finest of pork, aromatic sausage and spreads or regional products taste best with a glass of delicious white wine. And for dessert, order sweet Styrian wine grapes. They are worth a sin!

Top wines from Styria

Styria is one of the most important wine regions in Austria. 77% of the Styrian wines are white wines, 12% are red wines and about 11% are used for Schilcher. Here are some of the most famous wines:

  • Welschriesling – the most common grape variety of Styria is a fruity, sparkling wine.
  • Morillon – also called Chardonnay, is also very popular. It is characterised by its deep fruitiness.
  • Scheurebe – also called Sämling 88, is a precocious white wine, which should be served very cold.
  • Ruländer – Pinot Grigio, one of the most bodied wines in Styria. Its bouquet is almost reminiscent in colour, taste and smell to caramel.
  • Schilcher – is a protected grape variety in Styria, and is characterised by a racy acidity.
