“Schützen durch Nützen“ (Protection through utilisation) – that is the slogan of the styrian nature parks Almenland, Steirische Eisenwurzen, Mürzer Oberland, Pöllauer Tal, Sölktäler, Südsteirisches Weinland and Zirbitzkogel-Grebenzen. They have made it their mission to protect Styria’s diverse natural and cultural landscapes. And this diversity knows no bounds: glacially formed marshes and lagoons, vineyards, extensive mountain pastures, and thick forests everywhere. Styria is widely known as natural paradise.

Through sustainable usage, those nature parks want to preserve these centuries old cultural landscapes and aid in their contemporary development. This includes creating recreational resorts and to sensitise people to the correlation between nature and culture. All of this should make the regions fit for the future.
