Southern Styria not only provides culinary experiences, but also has a lot to tell in terms of its culture, history and customs. From Roman excavation sites to the oldest wine cellar in Europe and the Stainzer Flascherlzug (steam train) to lived Styrian customs, the range of excursion destinations and sights is extensive.
Visitors can experience a region that is proud of its thousand-year-old cultural heritage. Special mention must be made of the wine trails of southern Styria, which are not only characterised by the breathtaking wine landscape, but also by the uniqueness that one Buschenschank (wine tavern) follows the next.
You can also admire castles and palaces as well as museums, galleries and exhibitions where you can learn more about the Romans and Celts, and the history of the region. In countless manufactories you can look over the shoulders of the producers and find out how Styrian delicacies, ranging from pumpkin seed oil to lavender syrup, are made.
