A perfect location
A summer retreat in Söchau
Summer visitors from Vienna have always sought relaxation in the eastern Styria region. Quite rightly so. As besides the energising scenery, the region is characterised by health spas, fine dining and culture.
The herbal village of Söchau and the “heavenly holidays” apartments are the ideal starting point to visit and enjoy all these attractions. The following health spas can be reached in just a few minutes by car: Rogner Bad Blumau, Therme der Ruhe Bad Gleichenberg, Parktherme Bad Radkersburg, Heiltherme Bad Waltersdorf, H2O Hotel-Therme-Resort and Therme Loipersdorf.
The health-conscious guest reaches a pleasant oasis of tranquility, fresh air and healing springs after just 50 kilometres from Graz and 150 kilometres from Vienna. The herbal village of Söchau (273 m above sea level) is in the middle of the lower Rittschein valley surrounded by a hilly landscape, vineyards and orchards. The Pannonian climate brings lots of sunny days with it, which entice you to get out hiking or cycling.
The last volcano was active here 2 million years ago. Back then up to 40 volcanoes in Styria spewed their masses of lava and rocks onto the earth’s surface. Today, delicious old fruit varieties, healing and beneficial herbs and first-class wine thrive in this fertile soil.
