The easternmost point of the municipality of Wies is at a sea level of about 330 metres at the foot of the Koralpe. The westernmost point is on the border to Carinthia at a sea level of almost 2,000 metres. Wies is the largest wine-growing community in the Deutschlandsberg district. Especially the Blaue Wildbacherrebe (blue Wildbacher grape), from which the famous West Styrian Schilcher is made, is preferably cultivated here. But also the oil pumpkin plays a major role. Excellent kernel oil businesses are testimony to this.
9 themed hiking trails with different gradients invite young and old to exercise in nature. Cosiness and hospitality are very important in the guesthouses and accommodation establishments. From the end of May to the end of August, you can make yourself comfortable at the market square in the "living room" of Wies at the AufWIESern of the Wies winegrowers, the innkeepers and the Bauernecke. Wiesengrün und Himmelblau (Meadow Green and Sky Blue) is the name of the game at the Wies Regional Experiment Centre, where gardening enthusiasts and flower lovers can get tips for home and garden. Tradition and the past meet at the street festival in Bahnhofsstraße at "Wie's amoal" in September. The Wies Advent rounds off the year.
