One of the three wine routes in Thermen- & Vulkanland Styria. The route starts at the Klöcher Weinstraße in Frutten-Gießelsdorf and leads via Straden to St. Peter/Ottersbach.

Up and down through the hills of south-eastern Styria

It runs from Frutten-Gießelsdorf westwards over the Rosenberg to Straden, from here down the valley towards Wieden, continuing via Nägelsdorf, Hofstätten, Khünegg to Perbersdorf. From here you follow the country road to Bierbaum and along the ridge past the Weinwarte - with wonderful views - and over the Kalvarienberg to St. Peter/Ottersbach.

The “Südoststeirische Hügelland-Weinstraße” begins in Frutten-Gießelsdorf, on the Klöcher Weinstraße. This leads along the L 256 in a westerly direction into the “Rosenberg” wine country, which is favored by the climate and location, lined by the vineyards of Neusetz and Hof. The view opens up to the Kirchberg Straden. At Klapotetz in Straden, the path leads downhill to Wieden. In the village area, you can see the “Klausen” vineyard on the right. Passing steep vineyards, the road leads via Nägelsdorf to Hofstätten, over the Hofstättner Berg to Khünegg, and further along the vineyards of the Oberberg to Perbersdorf. Here you turn off onto the country road to Bierbaum. At the Frauensäule, the route goes straight up the Bierbaumberg. The route now continues south along the ridge for a few kilometers, via Steinriegel, Perbersdorf and Kalvarienberg, surrounded by vineyards, with a magnificent view of both the Koralpen region and Slovenia. From Kalvarienberg you reach the main road to St. Peter a. Ottersbach. The “Südoststeirische Hügelland-Weinstraße” ends in the center of St. Peter a. Ottersbach, and the three idyllic St. Peter wine hiking trails begin at the same time.

Nature's pampering: how about an apple detox massage or a Chardonnay marc bath?
