FB7 Orchard Tour (FB7 Obstgartentour Thermen- & Vulkanland Steiermark)

Open
The Orchard Tour FB7 is one of a total of 14 forest and meadow tours in the Feldbach region in the thermal and volcanic country of Styria.  
The Styrian Volcanic Land is also often referred to as the "Garden of Austria". This tour shows why that is so. Orchards line this route around the imposing Riegersburg Castle. Apples, plums and peach crops, as well as scenic orchards, bear witness to the region's culinary diversity. The route also passes by unique culinary destinations such as the Fromagerie or Zotter chocolates.
