Styria is the southernmost region of Austria, Graz the capital city is also known as the green state because of the beautiful wooded countryside. Styria has some very strong traditions and it is not unusual to still see local people wearing their Styrian gray and green hunting clothes.
Aussee is the perfect place to stay. Bad Aussee is striking with its white faced, dark timbered house with balconies decked out with beautiful flowers. You can take a room at a hotel with balconies overlooking the lake and watch the Dachstein glacier whilst having breakfast. You can go canoeing on the lake and then take a brine bath with pine oil for an exhilarating feeling. Near Aussee is Bad Ischl and the famous Salzkammergut lakes, which can easily reached from Salzburg.
Due to its sheltered position, southern Styria has richer vegetation growing at higher altitudes than normal, giving the countryside an intimate, welcoming feel. There are many sightseeing walks where you can see almost vertical hay-fields beside mysterious pine-woods and near babbling streams. In June and July, delicious wild strawberries and raspberries grow among the flowers on the hill-sides.
Styria is ideal for touring. It has excellent roads and hotels, and prices often appreciably lower than in some other parts of Austria. Styrian food is excellent, and appreciably cheaper than in some other parts of Austria. Specialities include fresh trout, game, and spit roasted chicken. Styrian wines are fuller and fruitier than most Austrian wines and the white wine should be well chilled. Beer and Schnapps are also a great option here in Styria.
