Sightseeing in South Styria

South Styria is known as the "Garden of Styria", and for very good reason. True to its name, it blooms with culinary experiences, not to mention culture, history and old customs. The region boasts a wide variety of attractions and sights: from Roman archaeological sites to Europe's oldest wine cellar found in Seggau Castle; from the treasures of the South Styrian Wine Road to the Styrian customs still celebrated today - reflected both in the production of excellent wines and the many events that continue to enjoy great popularity.


Visitors are introduced to a vibrant, diverse region that can be just as proud of its cultural heritage spanning one thousand years as it can of its scenic appeal. Of particular note are the Wine Roads of South Styria, characterised not only by their awe-inspiring vine-clad landscapes, but by the traditional wine taverns that appear one after the other. The South Styrian Wine Road is of course the best-known, but the Wine Road in Sausal, unsurprisingly known as the Sausal Wine Road, could easily rival it in charm.

There are also many castles and churches to admire, as well as museums where you can learn more about the Romans and the Celts. Countless manufactories open their doors so that you can watch the producers at work and find out how Styrian delicacies such as pumpkin seed oil and lavender syrup are made. As the year revolves, don't miss the chance to join in some traditional festivals and celebrations that will help you get to know the people of South Styria in a merry, convivial and traditional atmosphere.
