The route runs along surfaced roads, forest and meadow trails, and through vineyards.

Starting from the Ratscher Landhaus hotel, hike north or towards the Buschenschank Pilch guesthouse. Passing the Weingut Schwarzl wine estate, follow the road towards the town of Unterranzried. From here, a meadow trail runs up to Wielitsch, to the Grabschneider/Wieltischkapelle chapel. Hike over the ridge, following the road to the Ledinegg orchard, where a forest trail runs down to the Mori car park (Bochhansl restaurant). Then it's onwards through the cool leafy forest up to the Lindenburg winery (run by the Stelzl family). The trails continues between vineyards and forests to the Weingut Wolfgang Maitz wine estate i.e. the Maitz Urbanikeller. Continue along a short stretch of road passing the Weingut Buschenschank Kögl tavern/winery, before heading up and down through the vineyards towards the Buschenschank Zweytick Robert and Susi tavern. From here, hike along the South Styrian Wine Road (on the pavement running parallel) to the "Styria Bench" at the Weingut Bullmann wine estate. Via a cul-sac-road, head towards Rebenhof. This final ascent is rewarded with a wonderful view, before you head back to the starting point.

A visit to the largest glass bunch of grapes on the Eorykogel – enjoy the fantastic view!
