From the mountains in the north to the rolling vineyards in the south, Steiermark, or Styria, is a diverse and historic region with evidence of human dwellings dating back to the Bronze Age and beyond. Its vast forests are ideal for walking during summer, while in winter its 741km of pistes attract skiers from far and wide.
The region's capital, Graz is a university town with no fewer than six higher learning institutes. As such it has a lively atmosphere and a human diversity that matches the assortment of traditional and modern architecture throughout the city. Popular visitor destinations include the Kunsthaus, a museum of contemporary art, and Schlossberg hill, the site of a fortress and excellent vantage point. As a chic cultural centre, Graz also has a wealth of shopping streets and trendy restaurants that make it ideal for a city break.
Southern Styria is a romantic region with undulating hills and mile upon mile of leafy vineyards. Famous for both its wine and its pumpkin oil, it's Styria's epicurean centre and visitors are sure to find a warm welcome and hearty cuisine here.
