February 8, 2020
The first stage through the Weinland Oststeiermark begins in Hartberg, where you can travel comfortably by train. Before you start, a tour of the historic old town is worthwhile.After you have left the city, you overcome the first hill and land in Sankt Johann, an idyllic village. It continues through the hilly country. The name says it all, because there is always going up and down between the winegrowing villages.In Kleinsteinbach you have mastered all vertical meters of today's stage and shortly afterwards you will reach a special highlight of the top class. In the thermal bath planned by Friedensreich Hundertwasser you can really let your soul dangle in the thermal water between the colorful buildings.It is not far to Fürstenfeld and you still have enough time to explore the city on your own. Interesting is the arrow castle museum, which tells the eventful history of the city. You should definitely not miss the end of the first stage with a glass of wine.
