The remaining area is mainly used for wine and fruit growing, for which it is particularly well known. The South Styrian wine route passes the villages of Berghausen, Ratsch, Sulztal, Glanz, Langegg, Schloßberg and Eichberg -Trautenburg. It is the oldest and most famous of all Styrian wine routes and is most definitely worth investigating on your self-catering holidays in Austria. On the way, you should not forget to stop for something to eat at some of the many farms and restaurants along the way, or indeed a wine tasting!
Regional specialties of Austrian cuisine
Wine, pumpkins and apples are the three main resources for which Styria is known.

City or countryside
Not just a region for fantastic sweeping landscapes, fresh air, tranquil meadows and vineyards, Styria is also home to Graz - Austria's 'second city'.

On Sunday morning, cars carved in the autocorso, with various figures modeled by flowers, drive through the city. In the afternoons there is a boat corse at the Grundlsee or Altausseer See.
