Between Dachstein, Hochschwab, Zirbitzkogel and green mountain pastures, between flood plains and flowing gorges - that is where the green heart of Austria beats – in Styria, the country’s most densely forested and greenest region.


This scenery is particularly well-suited for satisfying the desires of walkers and hikers, cyclists and climbers, for those looking to discover new places of interest and for those who simply wish to enjoy the view.
