Live the freedom

Enjoy actively

Momentum, energy and a sense of adventure, Eastern Styria moves in a variety of ways: on foot, by bike, on alpine meadows, while forest bathing. Feel the nature, without the goal in mind, consciously experience the moment.

Immersing yourself in the landscape magic of eastern Styria is a journey of discovery for those hungry for movement. Where nature takes center stage, the senses perk up. When the days are warmed by the autumn sun, nature lovers revel in the colorful atmosphere and hike from alpine pasture to alpine pasture, from hill to hill, from Buschenschank to Buschenschank. Arriving in the middle of nature refreshes and invigorates. This is pure life in the middle of Austria's garden.

From the summit to the wine

Varied hikes lure you into nature, active nature lovers get going. All senses are on reception. From the last foothills of the Eastern Alps with about 1800 meters of altitude to the sun-drenched vineyards, landscape panoramas enchant with colorful play.

From summit, forest, alpine to Buschenschank hiking, Eastern Styria moves. From the Fischbach Alps to the forest home of Peter Rosegger, from the refreshing Joglland to the paradisiacal Apfelland, from the Pöllauer Tal Nature Park to the Almenland Nature Park, nature plays virtuoso.

Happiness on two wheels

TIP • The Große-Jogl is the mountain bike flagship of the Joglland-Waldheimat region in the north of Eastern Styria.

For pleasure cyclists and e-bikers, it's the East Styrian hill waves that challenge luck. Sometimes a little uphill, but always in a well-tempered rhythm. Culinary pit stops reward with a hearty Brettljause at the Buschenschank or fruity-fresh juices quasi freshly tapped at 24/7 self-service farm stores.

TIP • The Gartentour is ideally suited as a beginner's tour. Cycling the East Styrian hills on a circular route of 68 km is pure pleasure. Simply download the GPS data and get on the saddle: In Velo Veritas!
