Whether it's a gourmet restaurant, a village inn, a wine tavern or a cosy café - there is a wide range on offer and both guests and hosts enjoy it. The range of specialities is rich. Even the most discerning palates will go into raptures over St. Veit's culinary offerings.
Sacred buildings of extraordinary beauty, picturesque gems in the form of wayside shrines and altarpieces along the way, here guests can recharge their batteries for everyday life in the midst of nature. The Barrock church in St. Veit am Vogau is particularly worth seeing. With its 2 mighty towers, it is still visible far into the southern Styrian wine country.
