Styria offers varied routes and trails for all tastes and skill levels.
With its rather flat terrain, the south is ideal for leisure cyclists. As the name suggests, the East Styrian Hills are perfect for cyclists who love a bit of up and down. If you’re looking for more challenging trails and ascents, look no further than the Graz mountains in the north or the Lipizzanerheimat region. Did you know that they are also perfect for e-bike tours?
Styria’s longest and doubtless most famous riverside cycle path starts at Hohe Tauern National Park in the province of Salzburg. It leads to the wine-growing areas and the Styrian spa country in the southeast of Styria. At its halfway point, it crosses through Graz Region – an invitation to fall in love.
Our tip: In addition to the Mur cycle path, the region boasts numerous other great cycle routes. Many of them can be combined with the Mur cycle path and a tour of the city of Graz, as well as with each other.
Seven pleasurable cycling highlights are waiting for avid cyclists in the Lipizzanerheimat region. The area surrounding Piber stud farm, the home of the famous Lipizzaner stallions, boasts seven great cycle routes with different difficulty levels.
The seven leisure cycling routes take you through the hills of western Styria, up and down gentle hillocks and past meadows, vineyards, castles and beautiful farmsteads. On most of the tours, you can catch a glimpse of the elegant white horses – a highlight not just for horse lovers! The animals’ gentle neighing accompanies cyclists riding along the meadows of Piber stud farm and as far as the surrounding Alpine pastures.
Lush green nature, cultural treasures, picturesque wine taverns or picnics at the vineyard: Enjoyment in many shapes and sizes is waiting for avid cyclists all around the region.
Also don’t miss the region’s famous Schilcher wine! The legendary wine with its pink to onion skin colour only grows in western Styria, predominantly along the Schilcher wine route.
