Arrival in Graz
Let your holiday start smoothly by enjoying Graz, a charming and expressive city.
Archduke Johann is still admired as a great styrian. Visit the palace with ii’s hunting museum and the wine house in Stainz. In 1229 there already existed a church which was extended to an impressive monastery. In 1840 it was owned by the archduke Johann and it is still in the hands of the descendeds from the archduke, the earls of Meran. A very special experience is a ride with the „Flascherlzug“ – a very old local train to Preding and back. (not included).
Today the tour will bring you directly into the heart of the „Schilcherweinland“. Schilcher – thats a distinct rose made from the indigenous „Blauer Wildbacher“ grape. A varied tour through idyllic villages and small forests till you reach Eibiswald.
After a short detour to Eibiswald, the animated municipality you continue the tour to the east - through picturesque scenery and small villages. The unique vineyards of the famous „Südsteirische Weinstraße“ accompany you on your way to Gamlitz where you will have the following 2 overnight stays.
Beside the nice hills of the vineyards you will recognize the, for this region typical, pumpkin fields. You definitely should stop at one of the pumpkin seed oil mills to taste the very special pumpkin seed oil.
Threw picturesque sceneries and small villages it goes in the wine town of Leibnitz. Leibnitz with the nice old town is the gate to the Südsteirischen Weinstraße.
Comfortable is your trip along the river Mur cycle path. Through colourful landscape, cool woods and eugenic fields the cycle path brings you back to Graz. If your legs are already tired from this week, you can also use the train for this tour.
The signposted and asphalted bike paths are flat along rivers, hilly in the „Schilcherland“ and the south styrian „Weinstraße“. For this tour we do recommend an e-bike.
