What is the GenussCard and how does it "work"?

The GenussCard is an inclusive card - you can use over 200 excursion destinations free of charge. You will receive the GenussCard from your host upon check-in on the day of arrival.

Where can I get my GenussCard?

Stay for just 1 night with any of more than 160 GenussCard hosts (hotels, inns, private apartments, youth hostels and family guest houses) in eastern Styria, the region of thermal spas and ancient volcanoes or southern or western Styria and you will receive your GenussCard.

When is the GenussCard valid?

The card is valid for the duration of your stay (incl. day of arrival and departure) between 1 March and 31 October.

Which places can I visit for free with the GenussCard?

Altogether there are over 200 places, in the categories Watery Fun, Sport & Leisure, Nature & Gardens, Food and Drink, Museums & Exhibitions and Adventure Drives. For example, the Food and Drink category includes the demonstration dairy run by the sheep farmers of Weiz, where visitors can go on an interesting tour to learn the secrets of how the milk is processed, and enjoy trying various sheep milk specialities in the tasting room. For stunning views and shining eyes all round, try a ride in the tethered balloon at the JUFA Hotel Stubenbergsee or go to see Franz Gsellmann’s “world machine”.

Sporty activities include bike hire from the Teuschler-Mogg Hotel in Bad Waltersdorf, visiting the Cria Valley alpacas in Riegersburg and stand-up paddle-boarding on Lake Stubenberg. Culinary delights are provided by, among others, the Kürbishof Koller pumpkin farm in Fehring, the aronia berry producer Köck in St. Ruprecht/Raab, the sparkling wine producer Harkamp in Leibnitz and the Friedrich Schilcher winery in St. Stefan ob Stainz.

Where is all the important information summarised or how can I find information on the way?

You can find a list of over 200 destinations, their exact services and when they can be visited as well as contact details here at www.genusscard.at and in the information brochure, which we will be happy to send you free of charge (unfortunately only available in german!).
