The holiday home Merli Riegersburg is in the middle of one of the most beautiful landscapes in Austria in a region, which has developed in the past years into a secret tip for quality holidays through the spas, culinary offers, crafts and the many options for athletic activities. The house is therefore ideal as a starting point
• for culinary discoveries by the wine cultivators, the inns and top operations of the region, e.g. in the chocolate manufacturer Zotter 3 km away, in the vinegar and schnapps manufacturer Gölles 4 km away or the Eibel winery 3 km away,
• for athletic activities like cycling tours and hikes on marked paths through the hilly landscape of vineyards and orchards, cottonwood and bush forests, climbing on burg cliffs or golfing on one of the three courses in Loiperdorf, Bad Waltersdorf and Bad Gleichberg,
• for visits to the crafts markets, castles, village festivals and concerts in the area
• for day excursions to the European cultural capitols 2013 and 2012, Graz and Maribor, to Vienna, Hungary or Slovenia,
• for relaxation and wellness in one of the five spas nearby (Bad Gleichenberg, Loipersdorf, Bad Blumau, Bad Waltersdorf, Sebersdorf) or the resort of the city.
Oiled oak and cottonwood floors, high-quality equipment made of timeless furniture and antiques, drapes of natural linens and carpets give the house warmth and comfort.
On the ground floor, the light-flooded and fully equipped kitchen on the front of the gable offers a view of the green while cooking; the fresh herbs can be found in the enclosed garden, which invites guests to do nothing, read, plan or grill. You can eat on the sunny terrace or the old massive wood table in the living room, which offers all types of entertainment with TV and stereo for those who are not sitting in the reading room with a book from the library.
The top floor with wooden ceilings offers not only another place to sleep, but rather space for independent usage and retreat with a cosy living room, kitchenette and bath/WC. In combination with the ground floor, it is ideal for a holiday with friends or families with large children.

The holiday home Merli is in the centre of the old city centre, found in the burg cliffs, a few steps from the main square and still in an extremely peaceful, isolated courtyard and garden area in connection with the residential and guest buildings of the landlord. The guest houses from the city, the cafe, the cinema, the witch store, the grocery stores, the church, the shoe and fashion shops and the burg entrance can be reached on foot in two minutes; it is not even a 10 minute walk to the lake with restaurants.
The surrounding area offers multiple burgs, 5 spas, 3 golf courses, hiking paths, hundreds of km-cycling paths, wineries and inns and a variety of culinary operations.
