Whether Gala, Fuji or Kronprinz Rudolf [Crown Prince Rudolph], with its total of ten different apple varieties, Styria covers all tastes. The apple country offers numerous tasting possibilities. Excursion destinations, such as the Haus des Apfels [Apple House] invite you to taste and get to know this wonderful fruit. The apple is of course best enjoyed right off the tree. However, it often faces a long journey before it finally finds its way into the local kitchens of Styria as apple vinegar, apple horseradish or apple strudel. The Styrian apple is used for more than just cooking and baking. In the pressed form, it also impresses its enjoyers as must, cider or fruit juice. In addition, events such as the Apple Blossom Festival or Apple Street Fest take place around the apple capital of Puch bei Weiz where you can enjoy apple culinary delights to the accompaniment of folk music and dance.
