Discover Oststeiermark with one of our locals
Welcome to Oststeiermark Greeters!
You are interested in getting to know in-depth Eastern Styria, our culinary ‘land of milk and honey’ – where people live both tradition and sustainability with a passion? You would like to explore the rural areas and charming villages of Eastern Styria and are seeking a personal encounter with the residents? You wish to get an authentic impression of everyday life and explore in depth the countryside?
By meeting our Greeters you can satisfy your curiosity, learn about people and culture and meet new friends. Our voluntary Greeters will be happy to meet you and show you their first personal choices – the must-see places of Eastern Styria – all for free.
Oststeiermark Greeters love to show you the beauty of our villages but also the multifaceted nature in our region. You can visit our highlights of course but do not hesitate to ask for the hidden treasures, for places that you will not find in any guidebook and allow yourself to be amazed.
Ask for advice where to buy the best regional products from farmers e.g. pumpkin seed oil, schnapps, fruit juices, vine, bread or other delicacies (like products from the Pöllauer autumn pears). Or where you find the most cosy “Buschenschank” (local vinery with homemade food). Our Greeters are willing to show you our special highlights of our Region. These highlights are part of our history so they are part of our lives. However, our Greeters also want to show the things that you will not find in a guidebook or are hard to discover if you are just wandering about.

Who are the Greeters?
We simply offer you the opportunity to enter the more everyday aspect of our East Styria Region, with its castles, Buschenschenken, small towns … During this walk, the inhabitants of East Styria, the “greeters”, lovers of their region, will be happy to share with you the charm of unusual places and to tell you the great and small stories of their homearea. This walk will take into account your tastes, interests and rhythm. What your greeter brings you: He or she will share with you his or her experiences and anecdotes; will tell you his or her good addresses; and of course will be happy to answer questions that will allow you to better understand East Styria and its surroundings. Moments that we hope will remain unforgettable for you.
What our guests say
Ich bin beeindruckt von der weitläufigen hügeligen Weinlandschaft und den beeindruckenden Architekturen in der Oststeiermark. Es war ein sehr spannender Greet mit einem sehr aufschlussreichen persönlichen Gespräch. Ich kann einen Greet in der Oststeiermark nur wärmstens empfehlen. , Mauterndorf
The Greet has been the highlight of our stay. Our Greeter, Georges, was very knowladgeable and interesting. We had a chance to ask the questions we never dared to ask… We believe we understand better the city and french way of life. An experience we will certainly do again in other part of the world. Thanks
It was a most wonderful day. I learned so much about the area and got to see a fantastic Japanese Garden, a splendid array of architectural gems and most of all suggestions for return visits to the area. Das is a national treasure!!
