Excursion destinations for families in Styria

Adventures for children – relaxation for their parents: The green heart of Austria offers leisure activities for the whole family. In summer, the beautiful lakes invite you to go swimming. On a hike, parents can enjoy the breathtaking views of Styria's mountain world while kids get to romp around on alpine meadows or play near babbling mountain streams. In winter, families spend time together going skiing, cross-country skiing or tobogganing ...

And in case it rains, there's plenty to do indoors: from delicious tastings at the Zotter chocolate factory to sliding and bathing at the H2O thermal spa in Bad Waltersdorf or at one of the other 8 thermal spas in Styria. Tours of exploration at Lurgrotte Peggau, Austria's largest water-bearing stalactite cave, a visit to the Lipizzan stud farm in Piber or a visit to Herberstein Animal World are particularly impressive as well. At the latter, the animals often spend the winter in their homes and can thus be admired at close quarters.
