Along the route starting in Hartberg and leading to Bad Radkersburg, hot springs in Sebersdorf, Bad Waltersdorf, Bad Blumau, Loipersdorf and Bad Radkersburg are inviting to take a relaxing break and enjoy the healthy thermal water.
The termal spa in Bad Gleichenberg is not directly situated along the cycling route but easily reachable via the cycle path R 45. Every spa of the six thermal spas in Spa Country Styria conveys its own character and charme and focuses on varying main emphases.
Tip: When choosing the route leading through the Lipizzanerheimat (the Styrian home town of the horse breed "Lipizzaner") in the region of Graz, another thermal spa emerges and enriches the Styrian spa variety: the thermal spa NOVA Köflach.
With its various vine cellars and shops, wine-growing estates and vine taverns, where one can taste regional delicacies and home-made wine, the Spa Country Styria definitely counts to one of the most idyllic landscapes in Austria.
Holidays in Styria can get even more valuable, if one makes use of the GenussCard, the complimentary ticket for more than 240 excursion destinations. The description of culinary cycling tours such as "Lucullus-Tour" or "Wine and water tour" may suggest, what one may expect from those tours: Pumpkins, pumpkin seed oil, wine, finest spirits, vinegar, cheese and ham.
The hot thermal springs in Southeast Austria are the perfect complement to cycling holidays - each of them convincing with its individual charme.
