Styria boasts extensive woodlands and rugged mountain areas, but also vineyards and a number of fortresses. From your cottage in Styria you can find winter sports in the Dachstein-West ski region and in summer you can go rafting, horse riding, cycling and walking.
Styria is divided in a Northern and Southern part by the rivers Mur and Mürz . The northern part is the Alpine region (tops between 2000-3000m) and in the south you will find the hilly wine region and the spa resorts. The Alpine region consists of Niedere Tauern, theTote Gebirge, Dachstein, Ennstaler- and Eisenerzer Alps. From your cottage in Styria you can visit Ramsau, one of the most popular spots in Dachstein. Visitors - in summer or winter - all come here for the magnificent mountain region.
This region has not been taken over by mass tourism yet. The holiday homes in Styria are located in tranquil spots and offer lots of space. The capital of Styria is Graz. Graz was cultural capital in 2003. The beautiful old town is listed as a UNESCO-area and offers monasteries, castles and museums. And make sure you don't forget Schloss Eggenberg.
Styria is half forest. A perfect green region, with cooling forests in summer. Of course you can make lovely walks here, but there are many cycling paths too. Along the river banks you can take in the landscapes of Styria. And you can be active on the rivers too with kayaks and canoes.
