From the eternal ice to the gentle wine landscape - the hiking trails in Styria offer you plenty of variety. Whether to idyllic mountain lakes, through dense forests, along clear streams, to romantic Alpine meadows, past rugged rock formations or out to high peaks - you will find everything in this region of Austria. Let yourself be surprised by the diversity. Around the mountains of the Dachstein, Gesaeuse or Hochschwab you will also get interesting insights into the history of the region, its inhabitants and traditions. Treat yourself to a break in one of the rustic Alpine huts, breathe in the fresh mountain air and enjoy your summer in Styria.

You can get an optimal insight into this dreamlike region on the long-distance hiking trail "From glacier to wine". The northern route starts on the Dachstein Glacier and takes you on 340 miles (548 kilometers) in 35 stages to Bad Radkersburg. You start in the rugged north and hike through deep green forests into the gentle landscape of Eastern Styria. The southern route is 237 miles (382 kilometers) long and takes you over beautiful panoramic mountains to the Nature Park South Styria. You hike past picturesque mountain lakes, over green Alpine pastures and a long ridge into the wine country. You don't have that much time? Then choose a suitable section of the long-distance hiking trail. If you prefer to do individual day tours, you can set up your base camp in Graz or in the Murtal valley and start your adventures from there. Simply pick out the best sections of the long-distance hiking trail for you or browse through the other four hikes that we present to you. You have plenty of alternatives.

While on the hikes, it's important that you wear good shoes and sufficient sun protection. Especially at higher altitudes, an extra layer of sun cream and headgear is recommended. Sufficient water, some provisions and a jacket are also important for mountain tours, as the weather can change quickly. There are enough opportunities to stop for refreshments on the tours, but sometimes only towards the end of the hike.
