About the region

At the foot of the Kulm, the most beautiful panoramic mountain of Eastern Styria, is a special climate. The warm days and cool nights are perfect for fruit growing. Only here the apples get their intensive aroma. That is why there are more apple trees around Puch than anywhere else; three out of four Styrian apples come from here. The fruit growers refine many of them into juices, cider and schnapps. The innkeepers on the Apple Road conjure up specialties from the fruit. For example, all vintages of the "Abakus" are bricked into the church wall; this noble brandy is only opened after 100 years.

In Elz stands as an archway the largest apple in the world, in Harl the "cathedral of the apple", the large fruit warehouse. In the "House of the Apple" the history of fruit-growing is presented, and here you can taste the fruit in liquid form and as a juicy pastry. The rich history of fruit growing begins around the church of St. Oswald with the "Noric girl" holding an apple. The gravestone of Ignaz Weberhofer, Peter Rosegger's forest schoolmaster, is right next door. When the great poet visited him, it was for him "A journey to paradise".
