Cycling for pleasure - Wine Road Tour Variant 2 - "Ratsch"

Open
This tour presents the glory and gastronomic delights of South Styria!
Starting from the train station in Ehrenhausen, the tour first runs through the Murauen floodplains to Spielfeld. From Spielfeld, the route then continues along the vineyard-clad hillsides in the direction of the South Styrian Wine Road. In addition to the many excellent Buschenschänken (wine taverns) dotted along the way, there is also a remarkable viewing platform on the Platschberg/Pac in Slovenia - the perfect spot for taking a break. Along the South Styrian Wine Road, the Wine Road Tour Variant 2 continues on to the Sultztal valley and Glanz, and via the Sernauberg to Gamlitz. From there, it's a leisurely ride back to your starting point.
