Hiking in South Styria

Blessed with a wonderful climate and renowned for its wonderful landscapes, this region situated in the southern part of Austria is an ideal hiking destination. Not only is South Styria the culinary mecca of Styria as a whole, it also offers a wide variety of hiking trails and tours (circular routes, wine tours, vineyard rambles, etc.). Keen hikers will be spoilt for choice. There are suitable walks to try whatever your fitness level (levels: easy - medium - difficult), and there is always something to suit everyone: the young and the young-at-heart; the athletes and the pleasure seekers. 

Hiking - whether on a challenging day tour or a leisurely ramble - allows you to observe South Styria at her finest: extraordinary views of hilly landscapes at every turn, whether in Gamlitz, Ehrenhausen, Leutschach or Kitzeck. Our range of hikes even includes hikes to the Slovenian border along the South Styrian Wine Road; an absolute highlight. Amidst vineyards, orchards and mixed forests, climbing almost 1,000 m to the Remschnigg Alm, Austria's most southerly alpine meadow, or traversing exhilarating gorges such as the Heiligengeist Klamm and the Altenbachklamm, hiking in South Styria promises to be an unforgettable experience. And, just remember: your backpack doesn't need to be jam-packed. Along the numerous trails, you will encounter a wealth of establishments at which to refuel.
