Magnificent mountain tour through the largest apple-growing area in Austria and the largest low mountain pasture area in Europe.
Beautiful circular tour starting from St. Ruprecht an der Raab, which first takes us through the apple orchards and vineyards of Eastern Styria. After about 20 km, the ascent to the alpine pastures of the Almenland Nature Park starts. On the ride across the highest low mountain pasture area in Europe, we are really challenged, but rewarded by magnificent panoramic views. Finally, a fast and long descent back to the Raab Valley awaits us.
Drive over the largest low mountain pasture area in Europe with impressive views and numerous culinary stops along the tour.
