Eating out in the Graz Region is a delightful experience, with the many restaurants, inns and wine taverns being as varied as the Styrian landscape. The province of Styria is famous for its many local delicacies and the heartfelt hospitality of its hosts. Consequently, it’s not surprising that the southern part of the region is affectionately called the “Tuscany of Styria”.
Graz is not only the gateway to the south and the region’s wine-growing area, but also Austria’s only official capital of delight. The country’s second-biggest city is a culinary hotbed, where you can get anything from burgers, pizza and kebab to the regional delicacies served at local cafés, bars, inns and “GenussHauptstadt” partners. At the latter, you can enjoy traditional as well as modern and creative cuisine, prepared with fresh produce from the region.
Styria also offers excellent options for eating out beyond the borders of the capital of delight. For instance, the wine-growing region as well as the rest of Graz Region boast some excellent inns – also known as “Steirische Dorfwirte“ (Styrian village hosts) or “Gute Steirische Gaststätten“ (fine Styrian inns). What’s more, food lovers can find a vast selection of award-winning restaurants, rustic wine taverns and mountain huts there.
Graz Region is a culinary paradise. Guests love the region’s typical specialities and heartfelt hospitality. And the region’s hosts love Styria for the fresh vegetables, salads and crops it yields. What’s more, the region boasts short supply chains, getting the excellent local products right from where they are harvested to the local chefs.
