Cycling in Styria - Far away from mass tourism
Green, greener, Styria! This region often gets referred to as the “green heart” and wherever you look here, you can see why! It gets this nickname mainly due to its extensive forest, meadow and pasture areas but also due to the numerous orchards and vineyards. This “Bundesland” or county has an almost Mediterranean like climate and gets more hours of sunshine annually than any other area of Austria. Moreover, Styria entices its guests with wonderful thermal springs and some of the best wines in the country – two things that we know many of our customers love! When cycling through Styria you will get to discover a region, which is untouched by hordes of tourists and that is mainly visited by natives.
You will be accompanied by water, forests and wine whilst cycling in Styria
Cycling in Austria is always customised to your wishes. A cycle tour in Styria could for example look like this: in the day you cycle through lush meadows and forests in what is most probably Austria’s most varied landscape. By doing so, you will simply discover one favourite place after the next. We highly recommend that you take a break at one of the traditional wine taverns. Here you will get to know Austria that little bit more what with the homemade snacks, sparkling wine and Austrian folk songs sung by the innkeeper himself. An eventful day involving forests and wine can end just perfectly in one of the Styrian thermal spas. Let yourself unwind in the wind thermal water – after all that is part of Austrian lifestyle.
It is easy to enjoy every day differently in Styria
Thankfully enjoyment means something different to everybody. Styria has a fitting holiday for everyone with its various free-time activities up its sleeve. That means that every day of your holiday is new and exciting. Spend an afternoon engaged with art and culture in Graz, the former European capital of culture. From the Schloßburg you can marvel at the city’s iconic symbol– the clock tower and from there you can enjoy a view over the whole city. If the weather were to be bad when you are in Graz, then it is definitely worth visiting the Graz Kunsthaus. Are you more into cuisine that art? Then test out the different varieties of the freshly pressed pumpkin seed oils. This regional speciality tastes much better here than anywhere else. You will see that a cycle tour through the green heart of Austria is as diverse as the country itself.
