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 its hunting musem and the wine house in Stainz. In 1229 there was already a church here, which was extended to an impressive monastery. In 1840 it was owned by the archduke Johann and even today it is still in the hands of the archduke's decendants, the earls of Merano. 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. This stage is a varied tour through idyllic villages and small forests all the way to Wies / 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 stay for two nights.
Alongside the nice hills covered in vineyards you will recognize the pumpin fields that are very typical for this region. You definitely should stop at one of the pumpkin seed oil mills to taste the very special pumpkin seed oil!
Cycle through picturesque scenery and small villages on your way to Leibnitz, a wine town. Leibnitz is a nice and old town and it is the gateway to the Südsteirischen Weinstraße.
Your trip along the cycle path running alongside the Mur river is very leisurely. Through colorful landscape, cool woods and eugonic fields the cycle path brings you back to Graz. If your legs are already tired from this week, you can take the train instead.
