Solarstadt Gleisdorf

The expansive main square, historic houses, parish church, fountains, shops, pubs, large farmers’ market, GEZ West shopping centre, MiR Museum, forumKLOSTER, Kulturkeller, Haus der Musik, solar tree…

Gleisdorf is just 15 minutes by car from the state capital of Graz. Many beautiful trails and vantage points are waiting to be discovered: The Kleeberg lookout, Eastern Styria’s Roman Wine Road with its original wine taverns, numerous bicycle trails in the Raabtal and the hilly country around Gleisdorf.

Over a distance of some 50 kilometres, the “Sun Tour” combines the most beautiful routes. The town’s “Wellenbad” features a special atmosphere: Here you get the feeling of being at the seaside. Since the pools are heated with solar energy, wonderfully warm water temperatures are guaranteed into late summer.
