Equipment (only in connection with a trainer) and further climbing tours are available at Naturbursch Riegersburg.

CASTLE WINE

A wine as unique as Riegersburg Castle

On the strongest fortress in Christendom - Riegersburg Castle - exceptional grape juices are created. Sublime, in the vineyards of the castle rock, on basaltic, mineral soils unique vines thrive. Down in the valley - on the Hofberg - the traditional winegrowing family Bernhart perfects the precious drops. Valuable. Noble. Elegant. Like the Riegersburg.

TRICKY CITY - THE GOLDEN GALLERIN

Tricky City offers outdoor Escape Games for outdoors! In the fight against the relentless time limit, it is a matter of solving exciting puzzles and tasks in a team (up to 6 people).
