4 elements tour FIRE 1 in the thermal & volcanic country Styria

From the Berghofer Mill in Fehring, via Kapfenstein Castle, to the largest fire engine and on to the oldest spa town in Styria and Feldbach.
In the thermal & volcanic land of Styria, the four elements - water, fire, earth and air - have found their home. For this reason, these e-bike tours are also dedicated to the four elements.

On the trail of fire

From the city of Feldbach, the route leads to Fehring and across the Mühlgraben to Kapfenstein. Past the spa park and the Therme der Ruhe (spa of tranquility) - touch the Styrassic Park and return to Feldbach via the Salzwipfel.

Unbridled passion, emotion and intensity - we are talking about the element of fire, which is firmly anchored in the history of the region. This e-bike tour takes you through the former land of volcanoes, which spewed hot lava millions of years ago and thus still shape the entire southeastern Styria region today. Where there is fire, there is energy - and you will need it on the upcoming tour. But don't worry, on your way through the varied landscape, many inns and wine taverns will welcome you for a rest.

With the support of the federal government and the European Union.

This e-bike tour is dedicated to FIRE and starts comfortably, along the Raabtalradweg, in Feldbach. Along the Raab you cycle together with the air tour to Fehring. Where your tour leaves the Raabtalradweg and enters the R12 Thermenradweg. Yikes, now it's getting pretty fiery! The next climb over the Hirzenriegl is a real challenge. But don't worry - you'll be rewarded with a great descent! When you arrive in Kapfenstein, you'll see the castle, which is enthroned on an extinct volcano, the Kapfensteiner Kogel. The Kapfenstein Castle with the GeoTrail are a welcome place for a rest with a view and impression. Now you make your way towards the "Gleichen Berge". Here the oldest health resort in Styria awaits you. The long extinct volcanoes around the Gleichenberger Kogel are real landmarks and visible from afar. After passing the Therme der Ruhe in Bad Gleichenberg, dinosaurs from Styrassic Park may cross our path! Eyes up! Via the R45 Gleichenberg cycle path you cycle back to Feldbach. 
A visit to Kapfenstein Castle is not to be missed. Likewise, a stop in the oldest spa town in Styria - Bad Gleichenberg - is also highly recommended.
