About the region

The Bürgeralm is a popular destination and starting point for hikes. It can be reached via a panoramic street or using the double chair lift - with a panoramic route, viewing platform, climbing route and hang glider starting ramp. In the winter, the Bürgeralm offers 3 ski lifts for children and beginners, magnificent natural snow slopes for snowshoe hikers and ski touring enthusiasts as well as a 7 km long prepared valley run for all winter sports fans. The Schießlingalm can also be easily reached via a toll road.

Guesthouses provide delicious fortification and cosy guest rooms can be chosen in hotels, guesthouses, bed and breakfasts, private rooms, apartments and holiday homes as well as alpine cabins. The leisure ponds in Seebach with their swimming and fishing options offer a year-round camping site. The earth station Aflenz, Austria's largest satellite ground station, is also worth a visit. The parish church of St. Peter, mother parish of Mariazell, and the Propstei, a seminar and event centre, are architectural historical gems. During the monthly historical market tours, you can learn about the nearly 1,000-year history of the parish and the market.
