Hiking through vineyards with a view

Leibnitz

Vineyards, poplars and chestnuts ... The southern route of the hiking trail "From the Glacier to the Wine" promises far-reaching views that please the eye and the heart.

No wonder that at the most beautiful vantage points in Southern Styria there are also "Herzbankerln" (heart-shaped benches) that invite you to pause for a moment. Of course, you can stop for refreshments at one of the "Ausgezeichnete Buschenschänken" (excellent wine taverns). Gentle hills, colourful vines and a road that swings through the vineyards in the shape of a heart. Wine hiking on the Herzerlstraße is not only an experience for lovers. The street has been around for around 100 years, but its history has nothing to do with love, because the "strange" shape came from a neighbourhood dispute.

Summer resort tip: Seggau Castle is definitely one of Styria's must-sees. As a former bishop's residence, the castle has a lot to offer. Among other things, the baroque castle chapel, the Michael chapel, the "Seggauer Liesl" (the largest historical bell in Styria), the lapidarium and the prince's rooms with the bishop's gallery. There is also a unique view of Lake Sulm and Frauenberg with the pilgrimage church. Also worth seeing is the border table in Glanz an der Weinstraße, which symbolises the friendship between Austria and Slovenia.
