FAQs: Hiking in Styria

What should I know about Hiking Styria?

Located in the southeast of Austria, Styria is known for its mountainous and forested landscape. From farms and vineyards to the service-oriented northern mountains, it offers a wide range of options for hikers and trekkers to explore.

While Graz is the main point of entry for hikes in the region, you can also access notable areas of interest from Salzburg (like Dachstein) and Vienna.

Significant art and architecture is abundant in the region. The clock tower Uhrturm in Graz is an icon. The city even has a hill at its center, the Schlossberg, complete with a castle and funicular railway.

There are many hikes for beginners and experienced trekkers alike. The more mountainous areas will clearly provide a challenging tour in contrast with the gentle trails and rolling hills of the lowland forests.

Why should I choose Styria for my Hiking adventure?

Varied Terrain!

From the heart of the Alps to the River Mur of Graz, Styria has many different ways to woo the wayward hiker. Glaciers, peaks, and exposed ridges allow for incredible vistas, notably in the northwest, but for those who want a different experience, perhaps a farmhouse culture tour, Aflenz-Kurort might be more your speed. To the south, wine and hiking go hand in hand, so touring a vineyard to release bottled up energy is best rewarded with a local glass of Blauer Zweigelt.

Storied Culture!

Austria is rich in history, and the southeast nook of Styria has a lot to do with this. Graz and its evolving architecture is the second largest city in the country. It has a number of high profile castles, including Castle Kapfenstein, the perfect way to end or begin a trek. Grabbing a local guide and heading onto the trail may be the best way to learn about the amazingly rich culture of Styria.

Tailored Trails!

Styria's complex and inviting nature is so well known, they have made sure that they provide a helping hand for those who want to experience it. Trails and tracks are usually well-posted, and even those that start straight from the farm will be easy to approach. Locals are known to strap on their hiking boots and head to the trail, so finding a program and accommodating location are seamless and fun!
