Activities that make you feel alive

The rolling hills and unspoilt nature invite you to get active. Leisurely cycling, golf, hiking, Nordic walking, climbing and canoeing are very popular.


Regardless of whether you are passionate about cycling, hiking, jogging, Nordic walking or golf, you will find suitable opportunities to pursue the activity of your choice in the Styrian Thermen- and Vulkanland. Superb jogging paths around the hotels and hot springs, wonderful climbing walls on the rocks of the Riegersburg, altogether 3.000 km of signposted cycling routes, four beautiful golf courses, wild rivers for canoeing as well as hiking trails make the region an El Dorado for physically active people.

On the 14 "Genussradeltouren" (leisurely cycling routes) that criss-cross the countryside, sport and enjoyment go hand in hand - this is a fundamental aspect of the region's offerings. This is also why hikers do not stop to count the kilometres, but instead stop at traditional wine taverns, wine-growing estates, inns and producers to get refreshments, have a rest and try some specialities. A dense network of bicycle workshops and bike hire shops offers excellent services to cyclists. E-bikes are also highly popular.
