The Klopotec Kapela Tourist Office was founded in the year 1996 and has 90 members. The Office focuses its activities on various tourist offer fields, especially preserving the natural cultural heritage and historical customs. It served as the initiator of the revival of the Legend of Attila which was passed down verbally from generation to generation. For this purpose office members built Attila's footpath in 1997 and also published propaganda material in Slovene and German. Attila's footpath project was also successfully carried out under the Phare programme in 2003. Thus the footpath has been broadened to the Radenci centre and incorporated into the municipality tourist offer with new markings, information material and resting places for visitors. Every year a walk along this footpath is organized to celebrate the municipality festival. During the year the office traditionally organizes many tourist shows, like village markets during the Tri srca marathon at the mountain expedition, raising the rattle (klopotec) on August 15th, and shows linked with work in the vineyard in autumn.

Office members have been setting up an interesting tourist spot in the vicinity of the Plague spot on Kapelski Vrh since 2001. They have built a restored vine press, a wood vine barrel with a volume of 6100 litres, planted a sample vineyard plantation, and in 2004 they also planted an offspring of the oldest vine from Maribor and built an entertainment area. Office members pay special attention to taking care of the environment with cleaning activities and planting flowers in public areas. During the autumn holidays the office prepared interesting culinary exhibitions. Based on the culinary recipes gathered from the outskirts of Slovenske gorice the Office published a book by Marija Fras, a long time vice-president of the Office, with the title "Jedi naših babic" ("Our Grandmothers's Dishes").

Office activities during the year are enriched with lectures on various topics: culinary art, ethnology, history, agriculture and gardening. Office members take part in inter-office meetings, and when it comes to nurturing cultural heritage they take active part in outdoor meetings.
