If you like multi-day hikes, you will love the 300-kilometre-long BergZeitReise trail that runs through Hochsteiermark. Alternatively, there are plenty of options for single-day tours. There are also numerous themed hiking trails, ranging from romantic to educational. If you’re looking for a more contemplative experience, we recommend the Hochsteiermark section of Mariazellerweg pilgrimage trail that leads to the famous pilgrimage basilica in Mariazell.
Are you looking for a more action-packed way to explore the region’s stunning landscapes? Then how about hopping on a bicycle, an e-bike or a mountain bike? The family-friendly, picturesque Mürz Valley cycle path runs from Mürzsteg to Bruck an der Mur, mostly along the shores of the river Mürz. In Bruck, you can find the Mur cycle path, which starts in Salzburg’s Lungau region and ends many kilometres further south in the Croatian town of Legrad. One section of the trail passes right through Bruck an der Mur.
Mountain bikers will love the varied mountain world of Mürzer Oberland Nature Park. In addition, the Mariazellerland region and the area surrounding Bruck an der Mur and Kapfenberg boast plenty of challenges, highlights and panoramic views. If you’re looking for a bit more action, we recommend Windpark Petrul with its numerous trails, which you can either ride separately or as one big, combined circular trail. However, the area is also a great choice for leisure cyclists, boasting a network of 45 kilometres of amazing trails. Alternatively, we recommend the trails in Peter Rosegger’s Waldheimat region and in Aflenz at the foot of the Hochschwab mountain range.
