All-around versatile: Styria offers a wealth of destinations for the entire family. From historical treasures like castles, palaces and monasteries, to exhibitions and fine arts, to contemporary architecture. Joy ride: adventure railways offer moving experiences between culture and nature in the city and country.

It was beautiful then, and still is today: individual gorgeous castles and palaces convey a life from past epochs, linking

with the present with castle tours or culture and culinary events.

Inspiring places decorate the inner courtyards of monasteries and abbeys: whether in the monastery garden, in the abbey library or in the abbey church, pleasantly peaceful and harmonious places for introspection can be discovered in the Styrian monasteries, abbeys and churches.
