From the apple blossom in spring until the pumpkin harvest in autumn, Eastern Styria welcomes you to its cycling season. On the four-day East Styria route, you cycle through the hilly landscape in the "Green Heart" of Austria. Magnificent cycle paths lead you up and down colorful meadows and fields, through forests, and along gushing rivers. However, East Styria offers more than just spectacular scenery, you can also try regional delicacies such as intense pumpkin seed oil, crisp apples, and excellent wine.

In this Collection, we introduce you to the route through the wine country in Eastern Styria. You will ride 150 kilometre (93 miles) in four stages. Some of the routes are a little bit hilly, but otherwise, the loop is the perfect option for both families and sporty cyclists alike. After a day in the saddle, you can relax in countless open-air pools, swimming lakes, and thermal baths, such as Bad Waltersdorf.

The routes also have an exciting range of culture, from museums to rare churches. Plus, the infrastructure is well-developed, with a train station never far away. This makes it easy to travel to and from the four stages, to complete them individually. Or, if you want to stay longer in the region, you’ll find a range of accommodation.
