Styrian spa country
The region with its six thermal spas
The Styrian spa country with its six thermal spas (in Bad Radkersburg, Bad Gleichenberg, Loipersdorf, Bad Blumau, Bad Waltersdorf and Sebersdorf) is a sunny region in the southeast of Styria. The region is characterised by its healing thermal spring water, rolling hills, mild climate and fertile soil.
Master chef Johann Lafer is not the only one who has taken a fancy to the excellent Styrian wine and the authentic Styrian pumpkin seed oil from the region. Born in Styria and ambassador of Styrian culinary delights, he swears by the delicacies of his homeland.
You can sample these delicacies for yourself on one of the easy cycling tours. The tour takes you through the Bad Radkersburg cycling region, which is characterised by floodplains and vineyards, and through neighbouring Slovenia. The trip would not be complete without a "Buschenschank/Heuriger" visit.
Hardly any other region in Austria has so many castles and fortresses. That is why a journey of discovery through Styria is also always a journey into the past. Bad Radkersburg, once an important centre of trade in Styria, tells the story of its 700-year-old history. The Kapfenstein "wine chateau" is perched high on an extinct volcano. The imposing Riegersburg fortress houses a witch museum and also stands on a volcanic mountain. The fortress has been owned by the princely family of Liechtenstein since 1822. No fewer than 18 fortresses and castles line the Castle Road, which crosses the Styrian spa country.
Bad Radkersburg is a friendly town steeped in tradition, and is the most southerly spa town in the Styrian spa country. The pleasant climate, combined with the many culinary and tourist attractions, and the greatest amount of summer sunshine in Austria, make the town a popular destination for a holiday in Austria.
