- The dandelion festival days follow after Easter
and finally bring the warmth of the sun to the Alm. Here you can switch off from everyday life and enjoy spring in all its splendor in Eastern Styria.
The heart of the Almenland Nature Park is the Teichalm and the Sommeralm, which are perfect for leisurely hikes from one mountain hut to another.
But here you will also find spectacular gorges and water-bearing gorges. The impressive Bärenschützklamm leads from Mixnitz to the Teichalm and on to the highest panoramic mountain in the Grazer Bergland, the Hochlantsch.
The small Schüsserlbrunn pilgrimage church, which was voted the most beautiful Styrian excursion destination in 2018, is located directly on the Hochlantsch rock.
The Raabklamm is Austria's longest gorge and also a Natura 2000 protected area.
We will see you in Spring!
Traditional easter in Styria!
Don't you also feel like celebrating a really traditional Easter? Hardly any other area is better suited to this than the Almenland Nature Park.
Holy Week begins with the palm consecration in churches, during which the colorful "palm bushes", made from catkins, herbs and colorful ribbons, are consecrated. The Easter liturgy continues with the "Last Supper Mass" on Maundy Thursday, the veneration of the cross with the great intercessory prayer on Good Friday and, as the highlight, the great resurrection celebration on Easter Vigil in numerous churches in the region.
These days are accompanied by regional customs: Ratchet children roam the town, consecrated fires are brought into the houses and on Easter vigil they celebrate happily around the Easter bonfires. The days before Easter are also used to dye Easter eggs and to buy specialties - from ham to Easter bread - from the farmers. The food and drinks are then enjoyed with the great Easter snack, right after the meat consecration on Holy Saturday. And on Easter Sunday everyone is looking forward to the happy search for the hidden Easter nests!
Hiking in the Naturpark Almenland
The region around the Teichalm and Sommeralm is made for various hikes during your holiday. Enjoy the beautiful landscape and fresh air during a walk or a hike of several hours. Numerous lodges invite you to stop and rest.
