Gaal is particularly popular among hikers and unique natural destinations such as the Ingeringsee, the Loretto chapel or Krugsee invite you to enjoy wonderful tours. The Seckau Alps and the hikes over the 2,000-metre-plus peaks are special highlights. With the Gaal loop hiking trail, hiking enthusiasts can experience beautiful natural spectacles in short stages. A side trip to the Gaal Alpine Park is available for climbing enthusiasts. You can also enjoy homemade specialities here in cabins, whether the Murtal 'Steirerkäse' cheese, the speciality of the region or freshly caught char fish.
Young skiers are taken care of, especially in Gaal with the Gaal ski lift. You can practise here and also really get after it on the 'ski motorway'. A cross-country ski run and snowshoe hiking tours also provide variation during the winter! Just like in most parts of the region, the topic of motors and sports is rooted in Gaal. There's a reason the VW Beetle Museum is located here where fans of the bug and classic car enthusiasts meet.
