Calling all foodies! Don’t miss Graz, a city easily accessible by train from Vienna or by car on the way to Slovenia. This compact and picturesque city, surrounded by majestic mountains is a culinary paradise renowned as the center of Austrian organic produce, with visits to local vineyards and tastings of the region’s famous products. Don’t miss the chance to embark on tastings at local vineyards in this southern wine country.
For thrill-seekers and nature enthusiasts, the Bärenschützklamm gorge is a must-do. Stroll through the scenic gorge, crossing over 164 wooden bridges and stairs, marvel at the rugged rock formations, and the thundering waterfalls, and encounter rare flora and fauna.
Just an hour from Graz, you’ll find the stud farm of the renowned Spanish Riding School in the idyllic countryside town of Piber. Spend a day immersing yourself in the world of horses, witnessing the beauty of mares, foals, and most importantly, the young stallions. Embark on unforgettable experiences, from private demonstrations with the skilled blacksmith, who handcrafts all the horseshoes, to a private carriage ride through the scenic fields.

For any horse-lover, it’s a truly breathtaking sight.
