Kreischberg summit

Open
This tour is a difficult route that should not be underestimated.
Away from the main road, you cycle through the countryside directly to the summit of the Kreischberg. The route offers a fantastic view of the Murau region - once you reach the summit, all the effort is worth it. Although this is a signposted mountain bike route, we ask that you respect the retreat of the animals on the mountain pasture.
