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.
Want to experience art? Of course: Styrian museums and galleries present impressive paintings, extraordinary sculptures and grandiose pieces of art. If you are looking for a tour, you can participate in workshops at select museums, rent an audio guide or join a guided tour through the exhibition.
If you would like to combine culture, nature and railways, indulge in an excursion with one of the adventure railways, for example with the Semmering railway. Inaugurated by the imperial couple in 1854 and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1986, the 41 km long, world's first mountain railway connects Gloggnitz with Mürzzuschlag.
