The 112-kilometre section begins in Fischbach and ends in Bad Waltersdorf in Styria’s Thermenland. In addition to wine taverns and restaurants, there are many other destinations for a stop: the pilgrimage church at Pöllauberg, Pöllau Castle with its beautiful garden and the proud Neuberg Castle near Hartberg.

Insights into the Styrian gastronomy are provided by the Fandler oil mill, where, among other things, the typical pumpkin seed oil is produced. Those who want to treat themselves to days of relaxation after a hike lasting several days can choose one of the spa hotels in the Thermenland.
