One of the most popular activities in Styria is experiencing the culinary arts and wine, for example on the South Styrian Wine Route. Some call it pleasure hiking and pleasure cycling - in addition to enjoying nature and exercise, stopping off at so-called Buschenschänken (wine taverns) or restaurants and wineries is just as much a part of the experience. Wine and fruit tastings at the many wineries and fruit farmers are a special highlight.

Gastronomy in Styria

Tradition is deeply rooted in Austrian Styria. In the Buschenschänken (wine taverns) and restaurants, the hosts often wear typical Styrian costumes: the Styrian suit for the men and the Styrian dirndl for the ladies, often in fir-green with poppy-red. 

Countless wineries and wine taverns offer Styrian wines, which are internationally renowned due to their special characteristics and the climatic conditions of the region. Mainly white wines are cultivated, such as Schilcher, Morillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Gelber Muskateller. Matching Styrian root meat, a hearty stew of potatoes, root vegetables and various meats such as pork, beef or veal. Styrian horseradish, a spicy horseradish sauce, is served with many dishes, such as root meat or fried chicken. For dessert, a Styrian apple strudel and the pleasure feast is perfect.
