The annual Styria festival is back in town! Styria – a county in the south of Austria with its capital Graz – is well known for many things amongst which you can find the famous pumpkin seed oil and excellent wine! Each year in spring, the tourism organisation of Styria comes to Vienna to promote its county, its culinary delicacies and its sense of humour.
The festival will take place from Thursday 12th of April until Sunday the 15th of April in front of town hall (Rathausplatz). 11 different regions will present their specialties; there are lots of stands selling traditional food and of course wine! You will see lots of people dressed in traditional clothes and there is even a show programme with music and dance each day!
It is definitely worth a visit and you will surely find the one or the other deli to enjoy!
How to get there from the hotel: tram 49 till the last stop & then 5 minutes on foot along the ring road!
