Styria

Styria also known as the "green" heart of Austria, has an Italian feel. Vineyards and rolling hills in the South and churning rivers in the North make Styria to a one of a kind province.

Styria, the great “green” heart of Austria, has an Italian feel; its southern sections with its vineyards and rolling hills are known as "Styrian Tuscany" - even though Styria actually borders Hungary and Slovenia. In the north and west of the province are churning rivers, to the east are thermal spas and all the castles you could ask for. Charming Graz is typically Austrian the way that St. Louis is typically American. Once a major Catholic pilgrimage center, Mariazell is now prized for its excellent bike trails. The Dachstein mountain to the north has impressive glaciers.
