Styria – the green heart of Austria

Are nature, enjoyment and comfort close to your heart? Spend a holiday in the federal state of Styria. From glaciers to wine, you have the unique chance to discover the kind of variety that you certainly won’t find anywhere else.

Much of the state is forested, which is why Styria is also known as "the green heart of Austria". But this isn't the only thing that sets the state apart. Typical Styrian treasures include wine, apples, pumpkins and of course thermal water.

The north-west of Styria, where the Murau-Kreischberg region is located, is characterised predominantly by its gentle mountains. Hike on the Gstoder, the Frauenalpe or the Stolzalpe, breathe in deeply and simply enjoy nature!

 

Austria – land of mountains

Austria attracts holidaymakers largely for its extraordinary landscapes. In addition to its emblematic mountains, there are also lakes, rivers and valleys here that are considered true natural beauties. Out in the great outdoors, guests can get active and in doing so really switch off properly.

But the towns and cities of Austria too are well worth visiting. Marvel at their Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and contemporary architecture.
