Culinary Experiences

Using all your senses in Styria: Not only can delicious Styrian products be tasted in exquisite restaurants, but they can also be "experienced" in many places. Did you know how farmers' donuts are baked? Or have you ever milked a cow? Try it out and you will earn the "Ennstal Alpine Diploma".

But Styria has various culinary excursion destinations to offer in other regions as well. At some distilleries, you can view the distilling process of fine brandies live. The process of cheese-making can also be experienced live at cheese dairies and the craft of brewing beer is also demonstrated in many Styrian breweries. Styria also has sumptuous experiences for those with a sweet tooth among our holiday guests: visitors can look over the shoulders of gingerbread bakers and learn about the processing of chocolate. Is your mouth watering already? Then find your favourite culinary excursion destination here!
