    South Styrian wine route

    Wine + Winegrower

    • The tremendous biketour through Graz, Austria’s gourmet-capital, the "Schilcherland" and the south styrian "Weinstraße" is perfectly suited for gourmets. You start and finish the tour in Graz, the cultural capital 2003 and city of design, where you should visit the old town.

      Along the rivers Mur and Sulm this tour leads you to the beautiful "Schilcherland". Here, you can taste some freshly squeezed pumpkin seed oil in the typical styrian pumpkin oil mills and enjoy the "Schilcherwine" and other delicious whitewines produced in this region.

      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

    •  Bicycles inclusive panniers:

      27-speed bikes
      The offered bikes are 27-speed-touring bikes for men or women.

       

      E-Bike
      With an electro bike every bike tour is a breeze! If you had few opportunities to cycle over the last weeks or if you are not sure concerning your fitness, every bike ride is a treat! The shiftable, low noise electric drive of our modern E-bike relieves you of some of the work and increases the pedal force up to 3 times ... So you can now book a bike tour together with cyclists who have different fitness level. Acclivity can be handled easily.

      A note to our customers: Electric bikes are a great thing! However, due to their characteristics (high weight + high speed) they should only be booked by very experienced and safe cyclists with a good sense of balance. E-bikes are not appropriate for persons who do not ride bikes frequently.
