Companion Program

Guided City walk, 2 hours

Graz turns visitors into time-travellers. As a World Cultural Heritage site it takes them back through distant centuries of the past in a whirlwind tour of the Renaissance, Gothic, and Baroque periods. Graz also captures the moment, the spirit of modern life.
In 2003 Graz was the Cultural Capital of Europe. The nomination brought positive changes and left unmistakable and spectacular marks in the cultural and architectural face of the city, such as the Kunsthaus, called the "friendly alien", or the Island in the River Mur.

Euro 8.50 per person (minimum 10 participants)

Excursion 1:

South Styrian Wine Route, Tuesday, April 19, 2011, 10:00 – 16:00

Here, beneath poplars and chestnut trees, where the Klapotetz beats time, life revolves around wine. An internationally more and more popular variety of local white wine reach the peak of maturity amidst the gentle hills of southern Styria. Wine-tasting and a cellar tour of the 300 year-old Episcopal Seggau Castle will help you acquire a taste for it.
A hearty snack of assorted homemade Styrian delicacies amidst the vineyards is always considered the highlight of this tour.

Excursion 2:

Riegersburg and Zotter, Wednesday, April 20, 2011, 9:00 – 17:00

Riegersburg Castle impressively stands in solitary splendour on the remains of a 482m high volcanic mountain. Referred to by the Turks at the time as „the mightiest fortress of Christianity“, the imposing appearance of the castle still commands our respect.
After a cold snack of home-made Styrian delicacies we will visit the nearby Zotter Chocolate Manufacture.
Immerse yourself in the world of chocolate. The guided tasting tour around the Zotter world of chocolate provides valuable information on chocolate as well as numerous creatively arranged titbit stations. You wander around the transparent Chocolate Factory, along paths of glass, and accompany the transformation of the cocoa bean into chocolate.

Euro 76.- per person (minimum 20 participants)
included are:
bus transfer, guide, entrance fee and guided tour at the castle and at the chocolate factory, elevator up and down the castle hill, cold snack

It is for anyone who has a taste for the play of the light on the hills, a hearty snack of assorted homemade Styrian delicacies, a glass of the unique Schilcher wine, that glows with the colour of onion skin or the dark glint of pumpkin seed oil.
