Oil trail tour

Off to find Styria's green gold!


The "cycling stronghold" of St. Martin, renowned as an accommodation provider on the Oil Trail cycling experience and location of the Lorenz oil mill, is one of the most popular starting points to discover the home of pumpkin seed oil. Over the Schwarzer Sulm (Black Sulm) and Weißer Sulm (White Sulm) rivers into the beautiful town of Wies. The tour continues past the agricultural research institute with its display pumpkins fields and the village in bloom of St. Peter im Sulmtal to Schwanberg with the newly renovated and reopened moor mud bath.


A noisy "Klapotetz" windmill - a traditional method of scaring away birds - signals that you are now in the heart of the Schilcher Wine area. In Hollenegg you cannot miss the view of the renaissance castle with its arcades and magnificent sequoias. The same goes for the Deutschlandsberg Castle. The main square in Deutschlandsberg is the heart of the Schilcher wine metropolis and you can therefore not miss it. Then it's back to the starting point past the vineyards.
