The Styrian Volcanic Land is also often referred to as the "Garden of Austria". This tour shows why that is so. Orchards line this route around the imposing Riegersburg Castle. Apples, plums and peach crops, as well as scenic orchards, bear witness to the region's culinary diversity. The route also passes by unique culinary destinations such as the Fromagerie or Zotter chocolates.

Author’s recommendation

Especially in spring, when the fruit trees are in full bloom, and in autumn, when the ripe fruit is harvested, this tour is impressive.
