Chapel Tour - Eggersdorf near Graz

Open
Instead of a trip to Rome, the chapel tour over seven hills around Eggersdorf near Graz is highly recommended at the moment This tour inspires both sporty tour riders and cyclists interested in culture, as well as leisurely connoisseurs of beautiful rest and picnic spots in nature and lovers of regional delicacies in home-style inns and wine taverns.
The cycle path starts at the weir and ends at the parish church in the centre of Eggersdorf near Graz. The tour leads past 11 chapels, 14 wayside shrines and 22 wayside crosses and invites the cyclist to pause, reflect and rediscover historical cultural monuments and witnesses of popular piety. These often artistically designed old cultural assets shine in new splendour after expert restoration by professionals in consultation with the Federal Office for the Protection of Monuments. The 44 km long cycle route has informative signposting, which also includes references to culinary treats on offer and direct marketers. Cyclists can look forward to beautifully laid-out rest areas, inviting them to enjoy a cosy picnic in the open air along the tour. Some businesses in Eggersdorf also offer a special picnic service. Baskets are filled with regional delicacies and treats and provided for guests, on request.
