The apple village in the center of the Styrian Apple Road.
It is especially beautiful in spring at the time of tree blossoming, when the village is enveloped in a cloud of white and delicate pink blossoms, but autumn also shows its most beautiful, sweetest and tastiest side on the Apfelstrasse.
The Apple Road winds around 25 km from Prebuch near Gleisdorf to the apple village of Puch and Oberfeistritz near Anger. On the way you will meet many fruit farmers who, as direct marketers, offer all the delicacies that are made from fruit.
These can be the most diverse juices, must in all variations, but also jams, nectars, fruit liqueurs and, above all, a variety of noble brandies.
First and foremost, the "Abacus", which 23 "apple men" distill in a strict ritual from the best apple variety of the year under the strictest secrecy in seclusion.
The path now leads us along the nursery area and the Schirnitzbach stream over the bridge to the Eiteljörg fruit and wine farm where we can fortify ourselves.
After refreshments we cross the state road and walk through orchards and vineyards to the connection to the apple hiking trail. From now on, the path leads us along the apple hiking trail or bike and walking path back to the apple village of Puch.
