Panorama Tour (Wies) - a perfect triad

Open
Signposted mountain bike tour no. 202

In viticulture, a cuvée of three different grape varieties is often referred to as a triad. The idea behind it: By blending three grape varieties, a completely new wine with a unique character is created.

The Panorama Tour (Wies) offers a triad of a special kind. Namely, a triad consisting of three wonderful wineries that are connected on a short but unique mountain bike tour. What is unique about this short tour in Schilcherland around Eibiswald and Wies is how it combines short, crisp climbs, wonderful places to stop for refreshments and fantastic panoramas of southwest Styria to create an impressive cycling and enjoyment experience.

The "Panoramatour Wies" - the perfect triad is the tour of your choice if you want to

  • want to start or end your cycling holiday in Schilcherland with a short pleasure tour,
  • if you would like to get to know three typical wineries of the Schilcherland on one tour: the Haring Winery, vulgo Pichlippi, the Garber Wine and Pleasure World, the Peiserhof and theif you want to absorb an incredibly dense impression of the diversity of the area on a short bike tour,
  • if you are looking for a mountain bike tour that your children can handle and that offers suitable rest and play facilities in the Buschenschänken,
  • if you would like to combine the panorama tour and the panoramic tour 101 and put them together to create a 360-degree cycling experience around Eibiswald and Wies,
  • if you want to take your new mountain bike or e-bike out for the first time on a short test tour,
  • if you are looking for a bike tour on your biking holiday after a long, hard tour the day before, where you can move your legs for a short time, but where the focus should be on relaxation and enjoyment,
  • or if you want to make a very short detour to Schilcherland after a long day at work and are looking for a perfect transition to the end of the day or an end in a Buschenschank.

  • From the starting point at the market square in Wies, start in a westerly direction towards Altenmarkt.At the end of the village turn into the "alte Wieser-Straße" and the first ascent begins up to the hill after the "Schönen Aussicht".
  • From there it's a gentle descent downhill and past the Buschenschank Pichlippi, which offers wine and culinary delights as well as a great children's playground, down to Eibiswald and leisurely to the Eibiswald church square, the starting point for many other mountain bike tours.
  • At the end of the main square, a short detour to the left leads up to the festival hall of the market town of Eibiswald, to the vocational school and past Eibiswald Castle. The castle is open on school days as the apprentice house of the Styrian Chamber of Commerce. The inner courtyard of the castle is worth seeing. To do so, leave the route briefly, turn left after the festival hall and continue past the vocational school in an easterly direction to the castle.
  • Staying on or returning to the original route, finish the short loop following the signs until you reach the B69. From there, continue in a westerly direction, turn off at the roundabout in the direction of St. Oswald/Soboth and continue from there for around one kilometre to Gasthof Bachseppl (closed).
  • There, at the signposted turn-off, the first ascent begins over the Aichberg to the Garber Wine and Pleasure World. The route leads past the vineyards of the Garber family and opens up wonderful views back towards Eibiswald and the Kapuner mountain.
  • At the Garber Winery, in addition to the Wine and Pleasure World, the panorama tower invites you to take a break and enjoy a panoramic view of southwest Styria.
  • From the Garber winery, the route continues downhill in an easterly direction, over to the Filatsch inn, where a short, crisp climb over the Höhenstraße awaits in a northerly direction and then downhill to the turnoff into the Wolfgruben.
  • This cool downhill leads into the densely wooded Wolfgruben-Graben. If you think back 200 years and let your imagination run wild, you can certainly associate this with a former wolf retreat.
  • Downhill, a gravel section begins that leads to the Peiserhof.
  • The next small challenge is a short climb from the Wolfgruben up to Haiden to the Peiserhof. From there, wonderful views open up again down to Eibiswald, over to the Kapuner, the Radlpass and St. Lorenzen.With the ascent to Haiden, the difficulties of the route are as good as overcome.
  • From Haiden you cross the Radlpass federal road over the cycle and pedestrian bridge and roll along the Kowaldstraße again to the Buschenschank Pichlippi, from there you roll along the same route back to the starting point in Wies.
