Go on a culinary journey of discovery with the mobile home

On a camper voyage of discovery: Vulcano Ham

With the camper through Styria

Our culinary voyages of discovery we usually do it with our own car and spend the night in nearby hotels. But of course there is another way. For example, one of our favorite culinary regions, the Styria in Austria, also explore well with the camper. This spring we were in three different culinary very interesting areas of Styria on the road, and some camper voyagers should pay attention to certain things:


Some winemakers on the Schilcher wine road are only accessible via steep slopes, with the motorhome not always easy
Steep mountain roads
Not all steep mountain roads are suitable for campers


Some producers of Styrian specialties are remote

Not every manufacturer of Styrian specialties can be reached via broad federal highways. Even if the Zotter chocolate factory or the cheese artist in Riegersburg are easier to reach, the ham paradise of Vulcano is more remote. In southern Styria, the food shelf in Ehrenhausen is easy to find. It becomes more difficult with remote wine taverns, which can only be reached via the narrow lanes of the South Styrian Wine Route. And even on the Schilcher Wine Route, it will be difficult with the mobile home to climb the often steep paths up to the winegrowers on the slopes above the valley. In other places the path goes through narrow forest paths with low-hanging branches. Therefore, motorhome drivers should inform themselves by telephone before their journey to the winegrowers, the seed oil producers or the ham manufacturers of their choice, how the journey with the motorhome is best and easiest to manage.


The parking lot at Genussshaus Ehrenhausen is sufficient for motorhomes


Parking is not always set up for campers

While it may not be a problem for farmers or winemakers in most cases to park the motorhome on the field or roadside, this is not always the case. In the narrow and steep hillsides on the South Styrian Wine Route, it is sometimes difficult for cars to get a parking space at the wine tavern of their choice, especially in summer or fall, when the rush is high during the holiday season or harvest season. With the camper will be difficult. Again, it is worthwhile to clarify whether sufficient Parking for a mobile home is available. The same applies to holidays in the spring months.

Motorhomes are perfect for culinary discovery tours

And, of course, motorhomes are the perfect place to go on a culinary journey of discovery, as they offer plenty of space for souvenirs from these regions. Therefore, it is advisable to go there especially in the harvest time with the camper, so you can take the same fresh products such as the delicious fruit juices from Styria or the healthy seed oil in larger quantities with home. The Genussregal in Ehrenhausen is ideal as a stopover, if you want to fill up as a motor home traveler his supplies for home. There are many of the regional products directly from the grower, and a fitting explanation of the produce is available in the museum itself.
