Tips for the Region

With high alpine mountains and gently rolling hills, Styria is a lovely area of Austria to visit, particularly when touring around by car. From Graz, the largest city in the region, to Oberwölz, the smallest, discover the history and traditions that characterise the area and add to its charm.

The Styrian Sea

Styria is home to the Grüner See (Styrian Sea) by the village of Tragöß. With the Hochschwab Mountains and woodland surrounding this lake, it swells as the snow melts in the spring to reach a depth of approximately 12 metres in early summer, which is said to be the most beautiful time. Drive here in your hire car and discover the variety of flora and fauna, including crabs and trout. As the largest lake in the region, it boasts 14km of natural beaches and several dedicated bathing areas. There's also the chance to rent a boat or take part in sailing or surfing classes.

The Fischbach Alps

Named after the village of Fischbach, the Fischbach Alps are a long mountain range featuring woodland and Alpine meadows. The highest peak is the Stuhleck but other prominent points include the Teufelstein and the Rennfeld. Nature lovers delight in walking around this area, with hiking for all ages and abilities. Expolore long-distance trails from Bruck an der Mur (the ideal point of departure for many hiking tours) to the Fischbach Alps and on to the Semmering and Hochschwab mountains, following the ancient Mariazell pilgrim paths.

Important Cities

Graz and Weiz are two prominent cities to visit during your visit to Styria. Hartberg is the capital of the district of Hartberg-Fürstenfeld also makes an interesting visit.


As the capital city of Styria, Graz has an old medieval square called Hauptplatz with plenty of restaurants and shops mingling with architecture from the baroque and renaissance periods. The funicular takes visitors up the town's hill to an ancient clock tower called the Uhrturm.


Weiz in Eastern Styria features interesting little shops and boutiques. Cultural highlights include the "Weizbergkirche", a well-known, beautiful baroque church perched on a hill with views over the city.


Hartberg is a town that's small enough to explore on foot and has a church that's one of the most famous Charnel Houses in Austria. There's also a museum and Schloss Hartberg Castle to explore while you're there.

Climate, Cuisine, and Children

Climate and temperatures

Styria experiences a cool and temperate climate. The weather depends on where you are in the region and proximity to the mountains can influence rainfall. Average annual temperatures are around 8-9 °C. Many places experience mild weather even in winter and summer days can be hot but not overly so. Winters are rarely harsh to extremes, except at the tops of mountainous areas.

The Styrian Cuisine

Styria is famous across the world for its pumpkin seed oil, which has a unique nutty aroma and is often used in cooking and especially on salads. Pears and runner beans are particular specialties of the region and many recipes contain these delicacies, as well as fish from the "Styrian Teichland" region. Typical regional food includes slow-cooked beef, beetroot, and horseradish, washed down with a fine wine of the region.

Styria with Children

Spas are popular in Styria and also welcome children, where there are often dedicated staff to look after and entertain them. A good day trip is a guided tour of the "Lipizzanergestüt Piber" where Lipizzaner horses are bred for Vienna's Spanish Riding School. On the theme of animals, the Tierpark Herberstein and the Wildpark Mautern are also great attractions. Although the Hallstatt salt mines are now closed, the show mines and museum of the Stone Age make for a wonderful day out for all the family.
