Styria, the state in the southeast of Austria, bordering Slovenia, has a tradition of hosting the “Styrian spring” festival in Vienna. From Thursday the 7th of April through to Sunday the 10th of April, the state represents its 17 districts and regions on Rathausplatz. There is always an interesting programme with Styrian music, typical Styrian specialities in food and drink as well as information about the regions, their tourism and attractions.
This year the festival will have a different topic every day that they focus on: On Thursday: “Styrian lifestyle”, on Friday: “Styrian flirt style”, on Saturday: “Styrian traditions and treats” and on Sunday: “The 15th anniversary of the Styrian spring festival”.
Some of the highlights of their musical programme are: the band the “Stoakogler” on Thursday at 4pm and the Jazzbrunch at the Graz Café on Sunday at noon.
But the absolute highlight in terms of food is Styria’s famous speciality: pumpkin seed oil.
