Southern & Western Styria

The region of southern and western Styria has established itself as an excellent white wine and Schilcher grape growing region and features many exciting attractions: Southern Styria, the Schilcherland region and the home of the Lipizzan horses together form a very diverse and interesting holiday region. The mild climate also short-break visitors. Indulgence, customs, history, wine, hospitality, the Lipizzaner horses and the countryside combine the most diverse interests.

From Austria's world-famous Lipizzaner horses across the wine routes and along the gently rolling mountain ridges and all the way to the (cultural-)historical highlights and the hot springs. The region has the perfect infrastructure for golfers, cyclists, hikers, wellness holidaymakers and families - what's more, the region's proximity to Austria's second-largest city Graz means that it is easily reached from wherever you are.
