Summer Vacation in Styria

Styria and its capital Graz.
One of the larger states of Austria, Styria, in the south bordering to Slovenia. The capital is the cozy city of Graz, the largest city in the wide area, whose historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

If you ask many Austrians a tip for the holidays in their own country, then they give mostly Styria as the most popular destination, and what is a good destination for the Austrians, is of course also a good destination for all other travelers.

Styria is best known for the hospitality, but also the low prices, very child friendly, beautiful scenery, great events, culinary high level, and the best destination when it comes to wellness and enjoying.

A destination where you can find what other destinations advertise with and where you often in vain are looking for. Styria is also the homeland of some well-known Europeans, such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is from Graz.
