The Garden Tour is an approx. 65km long tour which leads from Hartberg via Kaindorf, Ebersdorf and Hartl via Bad Waltersdorf and Buch-St. Magdalena back to Hartberg.
The tour takes cyclists past popular culinary stops, shows shopping opportunities for regional products in the farm shops or by means of the 24-hour vending machines and also offers the service of the regional SAM taxi for pick-up.
In addition, eight new cycle rest stops have been set up along the tour and equipped with comfortable seating and lounging facilities. In other words, full comfort for our pleasure cyclists along the Garden Tour.
The project was implemented by Oststeiermark Tourismus and Regionalentwicklung Oststeiermark. The financial means for this project were provided by the Province of Styria, Department of Regional Planning and Regional Development.
Numerous refreshment stops invite you to indulge in culinary delicacies. This turns the Garden Tour 1 into a pleasure tour.

Tips and hints
We would like to thank all participating municipalities and partners for the joint implementation of the garden tour. The cycle path "Garden Tour 1" was supported in the course of the project "Cycle Master Plan Eastern Styria - Implementation of Discovery Tour 2" with funds from the Regional Department of the Province of Styria and was implemented in cooperation between Eastern Styria Tourism and Regional Development Eastern Styria.
The continuous signposting of the Garden Tour 1 will be completed by mid-September. The Garden Tour 1 runs along existing cycle paths, which are mentioned in the route description as an orientation aid.
