Family holiday

A holiday in South Styria isn't just heaven for gourmands and love birds alone - it's also a fantastic place for the whole family to have lots of fun and adventure in the midst of pure, unspoiled nature. 

Hiking through gorges and forests, over mountains and across vineyards is a wonderful way to feel the thrill of adventure and to gain fascinating insights into the many species of flora and fauna with which South Styria abounds. Test your motor skills at the Motorikpark Gamlitz or at the Generationenpark Heimschuh (multi-generational park). Dive in and enjoy some watery fun at Lake Sulm, the Steinerne Wehr bathing pool, the Wildoner Badesee (bathing lake), the wake park at Lake Planksee or our outdoor swimming pools. If animals are your thing, why not visit the Bärenhof Berghausen, a sanctuary that is home to 11 brown bears, a petting zoo, as well as a number of pigs and ponies. Those who would like to discover the South Styria Nature Park can book our Nature Experience program. You can also hop on your bike to explore our hilly vineyard landscapes or take a leisurely bike ride from wine tavern to wine tavern. Head for Eichberg-Trautenburg to experience the joyful exhilaration of flying down the zipline at the Weingut Skringer, generally known as Ranz, from station to station.
