Hiking trails for pleasure

It doesn't always have to be particularly long routes. There are so many sides to Styria and you can also discover them on leisurely hikes suitable for the whole family. Some of them go as far as over to Slovenia. And all of these leisurely hikes lead past friendly wine taverns, rustic mountain huts and excellent hotels. It depends on your mood and what you want - each according to their taste. What is Styrian cheese in the north is Schilcher wine and Vulkano ham in the south.
