Known as the Green Heart of Austria, Styria is a magical state full of forests, castles and welcoming locals. Wine fans will love exploring the region’s vineyards, winter sports enthusiasts can head to the mountains to ski, and foodies can feast on regional specialities like the Styrian almo oxen and pork pot roast.

The capital of the state, Graz, is ideal for culture vultures and food fanatics, as it is a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site and was the 2008 City of Culinary Delights.
