In the north, you'll discover the glaciated peaks of the Dachstein massif and the limestone rocks of the Gesaeuse National Park. On the Tauplitzalm, you'll experience wide mountain meadows and deep blue lakes. From the Zirbitzkogel and Hochschwab, you'll enjoy breathtaking views and rustic mountain huts — whereas beautifully undulating landscapes and inviting vineyard await you on the Slovenian border. Welcome to Styria, a region that has a lot to offer in terms of scenic diversity, as well as an epic network of hiking trails running directly through it all. And you can do what you want here: Head out on cozy family hikes, challenge yourself with hut Tours that last several days, or trek long-distance hiking trails and discover the most beautiful, secluded places in Styria. ,

So you can get out and go immediately, we have selected six hikes in Styria for you. Three of the Tours are day hikes, which will take you through the Schladminger Tauern, the Dachstein massif and the untouched nature of the Tauplitzalm. If you prefer to spend several days in the mountains, you should take a look at the Hüttenrundwanderweg in the Gesaeuse National Park. On the well-signposted trails, you can put together your own personal circular Tour and hike between six and nine days through the magnificent mountain landscape.

Without question, the most epic Tours in our list are the North Route and the South Route of the long-distance hiking trail "From Glacier to Wine". Starting from the Dachstein massif, the two routes meander through the whole of Styria to the wine-growing regions of southern Styria. You hike through the most beautiful mountain ranges, stand on unique peaks, visit sleepy villages and lively towns. The 25-day South Route and the 35-day North Route offer you an incomparable insight into the nature and culture of Styria.
