Eastern Styria's Roman Wine Road

Winegrowing in Eastern Styria has a long tradition with a 2000-year history. A 75 km archaeological trail follows Roman times through gently rolling hills, forests and vineyards. Starting in Gleisdorf, the Roman Wine Road leads through the picturesque hills of Eastern Styria via Hartberg to Bad Waltersdorf.
