If there is one thing that people in southern Styria are particularly good at, it's celebrating festivals all year round. The cultural heritage and the customs of an entire region are never left out of sight, with wine and culinary delights usually being the center of attention.
In addition to the Styrian Wine Week in Leibnitz, the Schilcher Days in Stainz or the Wine Culinarium in Leutschach an der Weinstraße in summer, the traditional wine harvest festivals take center stage in autumn.
Not only indulgence seekers get their money's worth, but also culture and sports enthusiasts. Events such as "Schillern" in the district of Deutschlandsberg or the Jazz Festival in Leibnitz are known beyond the state borders, just like the Welschlauf, which attracts ambitious runners from all over Austria to southern Styria.
