Geistthal - Södingberg
What guests can look forward to
About the region
The municipality consists of the two towns of Geistthal and Södingberg. Here you will find tourism centred around culture, history and leisure time. In the rooms of the former municipal office of Södingberg is the Celtic and Roman Museum, which depicts the archaeology of the Söding Valley. The Erslbauer Museum of Local History deals with local history and is operated by Jakob Moises. History comes alive here in the Geistthal museum. In particular old instruments show an important spectrum of history.
During the hot summer months, families in particular can cool down in the small but great open air swimming pool of Södingberg. The second urban district of Geistthal is above all known to pilgrims on the Way of St. James. The two routes starting in Seckau and in Thal near Graz meet here at the Church of St. James in Geistthal. In addition, hikes onto the Krautwasch and the Gleinalm start from here and cycling enthusiasts who are doing the Lipizzaner tour also pass by here.
