Only a couple of hours to spare?

The Garden of Austria in three hours

Three hours filled with happy moments are just as possible as an extensive holiday in the Green Heart of Austria. Use your short stay to get to know fluffy alpacas or explore the most beautiful parts of the region on horseback along field tracks and through whispering forests. The local show gardens invite you to marvel at natural treasures and in glass manufactories you will learn all about true craftsmanship, from food to the art of tailoring.

Five endorphin-fuelled hours

A hike along the Teichalm & Sommeralm recharges body, mind and soul. Little spots along the vast pastures and romantic streams invite you to stop and have a picnic.  The Koglhof summer toboggan run on the edge of the alpine pastures is the ideal reward for your hike. Speed down the hillside in a double seat toboggan along the 1 km track before heading to the attached motor skills park to refine your physical awareness.

Your Eastern Styrian wet weather programme

No day is a washout here

Little mermaids are just as well catered for as art enthusiasts in Eastern Styria. Those looking for tranquil relaxation have come to the right place at Heiltherme Bad Waltersdorf. Enjoy the warm healing water and regenerate your cells. See your little ones’ eyes light up with joy at the H2O children’s spa in Sebersdorf. Fun children’s programmes - from face painting to mermaid swimming sessions - and fast slides await. Experience relaxation and fun in Eastern Styria’s spas.

But there are also plenty of relatively unknown sacred treasures to be discovered that will have your heart beating to the sound of organs and church bells. And then there are the taverns along the Eastern Styrian Roman Wine Road, of course, that provide the ideal ambience to enjoy and spoil your palate with regional delights.
