Sun Tour Hofstätten variant | Region Gleisdorf

Open
This sometimes challenging “variant of the sun tour” leads up to the Hofstätten community center and back down into the Raabtal.

Whether in the flat Raabtal or in the hilly Gleisdorf area - the many cycle routes in the Gleisdorf region offer attractive cycle and mountain bike tours for all requirements. In addition to the supra-regional state and district cycle paths, the “Sonnentour” combines the most beautiful sections of the region and takes you through the entire surrounding area.

More information

Hofstätten is located near Gleisdorf - between Hartberg and Graz, directly on the A2.

Here you can find the starting point via Google Maps.

At the turnoff to the Sun Tour in Hofstätten, we drive along the Bruchweg until we come to the turnoff to the Wetzawinkelweg on the left. Then it goes uphill along a quiet country road to the community center and childrens daycare center in Wetzawinkel. Here we almost come to the main road, but we leave it on the right and turn left along the Hartweg back down towards Pirching. On the way we can treat ourself to a healthy drink at the Biohof Kochauf farm shop. Once at the bottom, we turn left again and end up back at the starting point - the turnoff to the Sun Tour.
