Safety informationHiking paths in OberGraz are generally easy to negotiate. Nevertheless, you should choose hiking routes that correspond to your level of fitness and surefootedness. Dogs must be kept on the leash!
Tips and hintsDon’t miss the original Styrian tart from the Handl confectionery! Created from typical Styrian ingredients such as pumpkin seeds and pumpkin seed oil, apple preserves and freshly grated apples, stone-pine schnapps and walnuts, it is richly packed with treats for the palate.
