The Styrian Apple Road winds through Eastern Styria for 25 km. By car, on foot or on a bicycle – apples in liquid or solid form always take centre stage. Raw or processed into juice, cider, schnapps and delicious apple dishes. You can even enjoy entire apple menus from apple cider soup to apple dumplings at restaurants along the way.

Numerous music-related events are held throughout the year. The "Straße der Musik" association networks these events, expands them with workshops, training courses and much more and combines them into one large project. The aim is to preserve and innovatively develop these traditions.

A range of activities and events for young and old take place in the communities throughout the year. This results in a wide-ranging calendar of events. But the musical personalities are also in the foreground. From sacred choir music to Bohemian brass band music, there are many creative artists and music groups along the Road of Music. For example, the Hafendorfer, the Grafen, the Stoakogler, the Ritschis and many more are particularly well known!

Events and music groups dedicated to traditional Styrian folk music are also supported. Thus, for example, the Almliederabende, the Hausmusik groups or the Musikanten-Stammtische are preserved.
