Holidays in South & West Styria

The holiday region of South & West Styria has a lot to offer to vacationers of all ages. The gently rolling hills are always worth a visit, encircled by breathtaking landscapes and areas of unspoilt nature. Thanks to the mild climate and frequent high-pressure areas coming from the Adriatic countries, this part of Styria makes for a great holiday destination all year round. Styria features some 300 sunshine days per year – cycling and biking is possible throughout the seasons. South & West Styria comprise the geographic regions of Deutschlandsberg and Leibnitz, also known as "Austria's Tuscany" due to its warm temperatures and the softly rolling hills encircled by the summits of Koralpe and endless vineyards. What's more, the area offers a fine blend of art and culture treasures and endless opportunities for sportsmen and adventure-seeking guests.

South & West Styria – Pure pleasure

South Styria is Austria's most popular wine & culinary region including some 1000 wine farmers on incredible 2500 hectares of vineyards: ever heard of fine Sauvignon Blanc, Welschriesling or Weißburgunder? Of course you can try them all in Styria, especially during the harvest season in autumn. Enjoy a wonderful wine farm tour from one cellar to the next, for example on occasion of the Styrian wine week taking place in Leibnitz in August.

A glass of fine wine accompanied by culinary delicacies from Styria creates memories that will stay with you forever: the typical "Buschenschank" wine tavern often can be found in the outdoors amidst deep green vineyards. Gourmet fans are spoilt for choice when it comes to culinary pleasures: a highlight not to be missed is the 50 km long Schilcherreise gourmet route. South & West Styria have an infinite number of local delights and fresh farm products like pumpkin seed oil, homemade marmalades, fresh beans, etc. Traditional inns prepare mouth-watering local specialties with much love to the detail.
