Excursion destinations in Styria

Marvel at the Ice Palace up on the Dachstein and enjoy magnificent scenic views of the Niedere and Hohe Tauern mountain ranges all the way to the Großglockner. Take a relaxing dip in one of the nine thermal spas and feel the healing effects of the thermal water.

Visit the culinary manufactories of Zotter, Gölles and others, and go on a tour along the Styrian Wine Roads in the south and east of Styria. Be inspired by the cultural programme of the Graz Opera or the history of the Castle Road.
