On a clear winter day, the castle at Riegersburg dominates the landscape for miles. Many roads lead to it, each one as delightfully winding and picturesque as the others.
We should know. We explored several as we tried to find our way back to the highway 🙂
The Eastern Styria region is known for its soft beautiful hills and delicious pumpkin seed oil. The oil is a specialty of the region. It is used in salads as dressing, in main courses as a garnish and even in desserts.
The castle itself was closed for the winters. So we walked around in the forest paths at its base. Enjoying being outdoors on such a beautiful day.
