Tour map

Route

Tour profile/ level 2:

The signposted and asphalted bikepaths are flat to slightly hilly along rivers, with longer inclines in the "Schilcherland" and the south styrian "Weinstraße". For this tour, we do recommend an e-bike.

Day 1: Graz

Individual arrival in Graz. Let your day start smoothly and enjoy the charming and expressive city.

Day 2: Graz – Stainz, approx. 45 km

Archduke Johann is still admired as a great styrian. Visit the palace with its hunting museum and the wine house in Stainz. In 1229 there already existed a church which was extended to an impressive monastery. In 1840 it was owned by the archduke Johann and is still in the hands of his descendants, the earls of Meran. A very special experience is a ride with the "Flascherlzug" - a very old local train to Preding and back (not included).

Day 3: Stainz – Eibiswald, approx. 45 km

Today, the tour will bring you directly into the heart of the "Schilcherweinland". Schilcher - thats a distinct rose made from indigenous "Blauer Wildbacher" grape. A varied tour through idyllic villages and small forests until you reach Eibswald.

Day 4: Eibiswald – Leutschach, approx. 50 km

After a short detour to Eibiswald you continue the tour to the eastbound - through the picturesque scenery and small villages. The unique vineyards of the famous "South Styrian wine route" accompany you on your way to Leutschach, where you will have the 2 following overnights stays.

Day 5: Leutschach, day off or roundtrip

Beside the nice hills of the vineyards you will recognize the pumpkin fields, which are typical for this region. You definitely should stop at one of the pumpkin seed oil mills to taste the very special pumpkin seed oil.

Day 6: Leutschach – Leibnitz, approx. 55 km

Today you cycle through picturesque landscapes to the South Styrian wine-growing town Leibnitz. The city with the beautiful old town is called the gate to the South Styrian wine route.

Day 7: Leibnitz – Graz, approx. 50 km

Cormfortable is your trip along the river Mur. The cycle path brings you back to Graz while cycling through colorful landscape, cool woods and rampant fields. If your legs are already tired from this week, you can also use the train for this tour (not incl.).

Day 8: Graz

Individual departure or extension.
