WINE cycling in Leutschach an der Weinstraße - Eichberg - hops meet wine

The bike tour "Eichberg - Hops meet wine" starts at the main square in Leutschach and leads through hop gardens to Maltschach/Arnfels. From there it goes up to the Eichberg, and through the beautiful wine landscape, past wine taverns, back to Leutschach.



Leutschach an der Weinstraße is not only the largest wine-growing municipality in Styria, but it is also the largest hop-growing region in Austria. This cycling tour takes you through hop gardens where you can smell the pungent fragrance of the hop blossom just before the harvest in August.

Once you have arived in Maltschach, the tour takes you over steep back roads up to the Eichberg. Here you cycle through the vineyards and the beautiful, typical landscape of southern Styria. In addition to a magnificent view, this tour also has many places to stop to taste wines and enjoy Styrian specialities, such as a 'Brettljause' [charcuterie-like snack] or a runner bean salad.
