An excursion to the imposing Riegersburg is unforgettable. Located high on a volcanic cone, the landmark of Eastern Styria towers impressively. A guided tour of the castle and a demonstration by the bird of prey station just below the castle, are very impressive experiences.

A completely new highlight for Young and Old is the "Wein-Erlebnis-Weg Bad Loipersdorf" (wine adventure trail), which is partly barrier-free and on which you can admire not only the Bad Loipersdorf region but also its vineyards, natural beauties and historical features. Since mid-July 2020, the "Wein-Rast-Platzln" (wine relaxation areas), a complementary attraction to the Wine Experience Trail, can be visited and regional products can be tasted on this circular hiking trail. The signposted paths lead through the gentle and hilly landscape, past a total of 5 wine taverns and 12 gastronomic establishments. If the full length (16.7 km) should be too much for you, you can also use one of the two sections. With the starting point Bad Loipersdorf thermal baths, you can take the section "Stock & Stein" (sticks & stones) with a length of 10.6 km, or, with the starting point in the center of Bad Loipersdorf, you can take the section "Schritt & Tritt" (step by step) with a length of 9 km, which can also be comfortably traveled by bike and stroller.

Forest bathing - wellbeing for body, mind and soul.
The Japanese "invented" forest bathing, because many years ago they already recognized that a stay in the forest heals us so much more than hours spent in expensive sessions with a therapist. Because nature gives us what we need the most: rest, fresh air, various essential oils that strengthen our immune system, a slowdown in our thoughts and the processing of anxiety and depression. And all this free of charge, at any time of the day and without special equipment. A simple, conscious walk in the forest is perfect enough to enjoy all the above-mentioned benefits for your mind and soul. Especially people living in the city benefit from this wonderful nature relaxation, because they often lack the connection to nature or a piece of forest in their area. It's pretty awesome that we still have a lot of healthy and intact mixed forest with beautiful old trees in Unterlamm. Magnificent old tree giants just waiting to do us and our well-being a little favour.
Thus, at the Lammerhof, the well-deserved break and relaxation in our beautiful nature begins right upon your arrival.
