Autumn vacation in Bad Radkersburg: thermal springs, wine & hiking
With the onset of autumn the Mur and Au landscape are covered by a magnificent kaleidoscope of colours. The vineyards are illuminated by the warm soft rays of the autumn sun, glinting off the fully filled harvest baskets, to be seen in every garden and field. In the Parktherme , thermal springs await you with their unmatched feeling of well-being. Relax and let yourself go as in the Wine Cellar Sauna as they pour the aromatic water with its wafting smell of grapes over the hot sauna stones.
What could make more sense than to journey in to southern Styria and to take advantage of the many long sunny November days with their soft golden light?
Exploring the vineyards by bike
Thanks to Mediterranean climate which lasts until as far in to the year as October, cyclists can enjoy a discovery trip along the many richly varying bicycle routes. Whether as part of one of the popular guided tours or by your self – particularly in Autumn, the enticing trips with their diversified landscapes of pumpkin fields and vineyards appeal to all of those who love to get out and about on just two wheels. The Austrian’s sunniest and most experience-richest bicycle region leads across the border in to Slovenia for those who wish to discover and explore the furthest and most hidden corners of this beautiful route.
Exploring the vineyards by foot
