Habring via Nußmoaralm

Travel by train to St. Georgen ob Judenburg - hike across the small areas of the Nußmoaralm - enjoy the St. Oswald view with the Seckau Alps behind it.
The Murberge mountains, which border the Mur to the south and the Wölzer Tauern to the north, are a rather unknown hiking area. Popular and well-known, however, is the Habring, the 1497 m high summit, which can be hiked from both St. Georgen and Oberzeiring. A few decades ago, the Habring still offered great views, but now there is no longer anything to see, as the summit lies in the middle of the forest. It is still attractive, however, as there is a beautiful summit cross with edelweiss, a location board with altitude information and a rest area. On this hike, the path is the goal, as the view and the pleasant ascent and descent are very impressive and the beautiful areas around the Nußmoaralm offer wonderful views towards the Seetal Alps. Once you have reached the summit, you should take some time to enjoy the "St. Oswald view": Just a few minutes from the Habring saddle, you come to the open meadow areas and can enjoy the view towards St. Oswald and the Seckau Alps beyond. The hike up the Habring is just the thing if you are looking for secluded areas with great views.

From Murau via the B96 and B317 (32 km, approx. 25 minutes)

We start at the village square of St. Georgen ob Judenburg (1), 734 m, and walk slightly downhill through the village. After crossing the Mur bridge and the railway tracks, we see the yellow signposts at the crossroads. We keep right uphill and follow the tarmac road through Pichlhofen to the crossroads and then turn left. The road is almost flat. At the next crossroads, we turn right and follow the road uphill until shortly after the house at Pichlhofen 3, where the tarmac road ends and continues as a gravel road. The route continues comfortably uphill, past the access road to the farm vlg. Wagner farm, until we reach a crossroads shortly afterwards. Here we turn left into the side road, which now leads uphill over several long serpentines. After a gate, we come to the open alpine pastures of the Nußmoaralm (2), 1152 m, and enjoy the view towards the Seetal Alps as we continue our ascent. This is followed by a mix of alpine pastures and forest areas until we reach a crossroads and continue left. The forest road leads into a path that runs steadily uphill along a fence. We reach the saddle and see the yellow signposts. Now we turn left and after a few metres we reach the Habringsattel (3), 1406 m. 

Due to a barbed wire fence, we recommend taking the detour to St. Oswald-Blick via the Habringsattel waypoint and then right along the forest road to the open areas with the magnificent view to St. Oswald. A few metres from the Habringsattel, you can see the start of the path to the summit. The path leads somewhat more steeply uphill through the forest until we reach our destination, the Habring (4), 1497 m, just before the summit area. The way back is via the ascent route.

An alternative descent variant leads via the Schalenstein to St. Georgen - see hike "Habring via Schalenstein" (click on link).

If you like circular hikes, you can choose the way back to St. Georgen via the Schalenstein and Nußdorf - see hike "Habring via Schalenstein" (click on link)

The starting point of the hike is very easy to reach by train.

Take the train or bus to St. Georgen ob Judenburg.
