Stage 17 From Glacier to Wine North Route Veitsch Graf Meran Haus - Neuberg an der Mürz

Open
The tour takes us from Blumenberg Veitsch in the heart of Hochsteiermark to Neuberg an der Mürz, the center of the Mürzer Oberland Nature Park. At the beginning the tour goes uphill to the summit of the Veitsch, where a breathtaking view of the mountain world with Gesäuse, Hochschwab, Rax and Fischbacher Alps is offered, the tour then leads downhill throughout, right into the middle of the nature park romantically situated in the middle of these mountain massifs in the north of Styria with its Neuberger Münster, which characterizes the entire region.

The Neuberg Minster at the end of the stage is a former Cistercian monastery. The monastery was founded in 1327 by the Habsburg Duke "Otto the Merry" on the occasion of the birth of his son Frederick. The imposing collegiate church is an impressive building not only for connoisseurs of art and culture. This earliest uniform hall complex within Austrian Gothic architecture bears the largest church wood roof truss in Austria. The cloister with the pictures of 38 abbots is worth seeing as well as the Renaissance high altar and the chapter house with the founder's crypt. The remains of Duke Otto the Merry and his family are buried here. In one part of the imposing complex there is also the Kaiserhof Glass Manufactory, where beautiful and precious glass articles are produced all year round. In this show glass blowing workshop it is possible to witness and try for oneself the production of glass articles from the molten glass.

We also move here on a stage of the circular tour BergZeitReise, which leads through the wildly romantic mountain landscape of Hochsteiermark.
