Obdach is situated 110 miles (177 kilometers) southwest of Vienna, the country's capital, and 35 miles (56 kilometers) west of Graz.
Vacationing in just one place, no matter how popular, usually only offers you a narrow window into the broader natural and cultural makeup of a region. So be sure to set aside enough time to enjoy Styria's other natural and man-made attractions. Sankt Lambrecht and Eberstein are two other places worth checking out while you're in Styria.
About 7 miles (11 kilometers) to the north of Obdach is Judenburg, a regional city where you can explore Hauptplatz, Schloss Obermurau and Magdalenakirche. Admont Abbey and St. Lambrecht's Abbey are also good to visit.
Each place holds a special history and Styria has plenty of its own stories to tell. The castles in these parts provide a fascinating window on the past. Styria has an interesting spiritual history; so take the time to visit the area's most sacred churches.
Have you often wondered how it would feel to have a go at paragliding? The Styria area is an awesome place to give it a go. There are some great ways for thrill seekers to get into the outdoors around Obdach. Tobogganing and hiking are two ways thrill seekers here can get their fix.
When it's time to leave this special place, bid a fond Tschüss (farewell) to the locals you've met and the great places you've seen.
